I did the 'glass' on my beer mug. I liked the way it worked.

Hi all, I've made it thru 23 pages, but haven't yet seen my question asked. I have read about humidity being a problem, so in that respect is there a problem with laying the completed gelatin flowers directly on top of a buttercream iced cake. The examples I've seen look like they are sitting on a fondant covered cake. I have to wonder if the gelatin would melt when it comes in contact with the buttercream.

I've never had that problem. However if it bothers you, place the flowers/butterflies on the cake just before serving and pull them off as you cut the cake -- no worries! icon_biggrin.gif

Oh and by the way, I did an experiment, when I did my teal butterfly cake I made a few extra butterflies and put them in the frig for a week -- they came out just the same as the day they went in. No problemo! icon_lol.gif

I have to say Thank-you and I LOVE this technique! I was looking for an alternative to blown sugar and here it is!
I have made gelatin balloons, and my best friend made this HUGE rainbow and hung a plane and a birthday banner from it. It is durable and lasts. We have fun playing and painting them and you can use any template! We found some stuff at the dollar store that you can just paint gelatin on and peel off once it dries. I hope to post pictures of some of the things we have tried. It does melt a little with icing contact. You can even use the edible spray paints on them, I used it on the balloons!
Neat stuff!

Many thanks for sharing!

blueman: I'm in Texas and even with our humidity my blue bow cake & butterflies are still doing great. Even after teaching a couple of classes on this technique and in/out of my car my dummy cake with the gelatin items is stil standing. I don't think you can hurt this stuff if you tried.

My 2 children (1yr and 2 yrs) who i refer to as my bosses will not allow me to read through all of these pages and i am looking for the link to purchase the sheets for the butterflies and flowers? Anyone have cliffnotes or can quickly inform me? Much appreciated and my kids appreciate it too! lol icon_smile.gif

I read through all 57 pages on this sticky and all I can say is THANK YOU so much for all the help. I got up the courage to try to make a bow last night and so far is working wonderfully. I used my pampered chef cutting board because I am to impatiant to wait for pay-day so I could afford to go buy supplies. I had to make a second batch this morning to finish my bow but I wll post pictures of it when it is all done. Thank you again everyone!

And to purchase sheets go to www.cakeconnection.com.
