Top Tips

  • Don't forget to wash the bowl out after you use it so it doesn't set too hard!
  • You can colour it with different paste colours, you can even add edible lustre of glitter. 
  • You can make flowers with gelatine too!
  • Make sure you leave enough time for the gelatine shards to dry, they can take 24-48 hours depending on how thick the gelatine is.
