Yes, if they don't want to bend, they are too thick. They will still bend, but they will have a "crease" in them.

I tried using the gel mixture to make a half bottle (a bottle laying down ) I made up the mixture 2 days before the cake was do and poured into my silicone mold. It ended up being about 1 inch thick. Although it was not a total flop it didnt completely dry and when I added some fondant ( the bottle lable) it started melting. What melted rehardened. I don't think I used proper proportions of gel to water and that was my problem. I am going to continue to experiment with this [/img] I also used a drop of vanilla to achieve the color I wanted

I made my first gelatin bow last week and it came out really good..Qestion for anyone who has tried this...

I want to glue it onto a cakeboard covered in foil..Can I use a dab of WBH Buttercream which is a soft non crusting bakery icing or do I have to use gelatin? Will the BC icing melt the bow?


Thanks

I use buttercream on them - mine is a crusting one though. It works fine for me.

okay great..I don't have any gelatin left so I didn't want to have to make any if I didn't have to..I'll add the bow on just before they come and get it..they are picking it up just before the party so even if it does melt they will be cutting it by then.

I just came here to post my poinsettia that I made and saw yours!!

I used a leaf mold to make my poinsettia petals and fondant balls dropped into luke warm gelatin for the berries.
It's not as amazing as yours but I'm pretty proud of it!!!
