Okay if you are pinching the centers and they are breaking, it's one of two things: either the gelatin was painted on too thick or you pinched it too hard and cracked it. You should be able to pinch the centers and they should be reasonably flexible. Even though they can withstand a lot, you do have to be a little gentle with them. It's one of those things that takes practice.

Did some clear ones and will be trimming them shortly and hopefully they will bend and not break.

clear ones came out much better than the red ones. Will be decorating and see how many I can put on the cake. Thank you for this recipe.

Could I make gelatin butterflies using silicone molds?

You probably could but the trick to the butterflies is painting a very thin layer of gelatin on a textured mat and the wings curl up away from the mat when it's done -- doing this in a silicone mold may cause a problem with this. You could try it though and let us know how it works. icon_biggrin.gif

I may try it. I just love the translucent look. Otherwise I guess just gumpaste.... I'll let you know if it works or gets stuck like I surmise.... I wonder how long I should let it set up....

Well we know it's done on the mats when it peels away by itself (usually takes several hours or overnight.) You could see if that happens against the silicone.

Yes...I will just have to see if it comes out of the mold cavities without tearing, etc. What do they use to color the gelatin? Then use edible markers to paint on detail right?

Thanks Bob...you are always so helpful. thumbs_up.gif

Glad to help! icon_biggrin.gif Use airbrush colors to color the gelatin. If not, water down a drop of gel color -- a little goes a LOOOOOOOOOONG way! icon_lol.gif

I have gel so if I can I will use that then. Paint on detail with edible markers? Will that work on gelatin?

Yes, that works fine. It's especially cool when you use orange gelatin and a black food marker to outline the veins for a monarch butterfly. icon_lol.gif
