Can anyone help me with how to make gelatine sequins please? Im particularly interested in how to make perfectly round and even sequins as opposed to 'water' drops which are more peaked.

I was wondering what to do with a couple extra gelatin sheets left from my last project. After reading you post I went in and made a little pile of "sequins" by using a hole puncher. If you need several hundred you may want some help. Now that I have a pile of sequins Im gonna make a cakeicon_smile.gif Thanks for the great idea!

Just spread the gelatin mixture onto a acetate sheet (like the sheet protectors for scrapbooking or note books or acetate from the cake store).

you can use the regular hole punches from the office supply, or scrap booking store. I use all the different shapes they use for the scrap books. You can use the decorative scissors too to cut it. I think there should be information in the sticky thread in the 'How Do I' forum at the top.

Are people meant to eat these on a cake? Yes, they are edible, but everything I have made using dried gelatine hasn't been exactly palatable.
