Safe for food and fun to make!
It's jewelry for your cake!
If you leave off the luster dust, they'll be nearly clear!
You will need:
Knox Original Unflavored Gelatine
Silver Luster Dust (you can use any color--find at craft stores)
Tie it off.
Twist and wrap up the nipple of the balloon with the knot and secure with duct tape.
This will also aid in the drying process.
Stir gently. Add 1/8 to 1/4 tsp of luster dust and stir in.
Heat up in the microwave for about 30 seconds and stir again.
Let the mixture sit for a few minutes so most of the bubbles pop.
Then dip your balloons in the liquid gel and let them dry.
Give them a second coat and then let them dry overnight or with a fan.
If there are drips or sharp edges, use some scissors and clip them off.
The gel has hardened and is really hard! I was surprised!
They are ready to top off a cake and look shiny like pearls!
or Pearls and Lace wedding!
So they are pretty much a non-toxic decoration.
They are all about the look!
