How To Make Gelatin Bubbles
To make these funny gelatin bubbles, you will need:
- a bowl
- 1 package of gelatin
- 2 tablespoons of water
- a saucepan
- a stirring spoon
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- half a teaspoon of starch and another 200 ml of water
- a straw
How to Make Gelatin Bubbles with a Straw
- Put 200 ml of water in the pot on the stove to boil
- While waiting in the bowl pour 2 tablespoons of cold water and add gelatin to it, stir until you get a thick paste.
- Add the remaining products to the boiling water and stir
- Cook it gently for about 3 minutes and take it off the stove
Leave the paste to get cool enough. Then add gelatin with water and stir. If your starch is pure you will get a white mixture, and if you have chosen a taste of fruits it is possible to get the appropriate color. But in any case, the mixture should look a bit like glue.
Once the mixture is cold enough, get some air in through the straw. You will see how the bubble is coming out. Gently pull up the straw, and you will get beautiful gelatin balloons.
How to Make Gelatin Bubbles with Balloons
You will need:
- Balloons (it will be better to use small ones)
- Lollipop sticks or skewers
- Powdered gelatin
- Heatproof bowl
- Paper towels
- Food coloring, petal dust, luster dust, or edible glitter
- Cup or flat piece of styrofoam
Blow out the balloons, it will be easier to have small ones and make sure you push the air forward with additional knots on the neck, not only for getting more beautiful bubbles, but also to use them easily later as a decoration on your bubble cakes, or cupcakes.
Once you get the desired shape of your balloons, slide the lollipop sticks and dunk the balloons into the gelatin mixture. If you want to make them more sparkling and glittering, powder them while wet with edible glitter.
Leave the balloons to dry up to 24 hrs to make sure you will have perfectly shaped balloons. Pop the inside balloon with scissors. It should come pretty easily.
In case you have gelatin mixture leftovers, you can make extra shapes with silicone forms, or simply pour it over a cookie sheet and make a thin layer. Leave it for 24hrs, break the layer, and you will get some extra forms you can stuck among the bubbles.
