Ingredients

  • 16 ounces cool water
  • 60 grams super clear bloom 300 gelatin
  • 1/2 teaspoon strawberry extract clear
  • 1/4 teaspoon citric acid
  • 1/4 teaspoon flash dust
  • 1-2 drops food coloring optional

Equipment

  • crystal molds

Instructions

  • Pour liquid into a microwave safe bowl or pouring vessel. Sprinkle gelatin over top of liquid and gently push and stir dry gelatin into liquid. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  • Microwave the gelatin mixture at 100%, for 15 seconds. Stir, microwave again for 15 seconds stir. If gelatin still appears lumpy microwave again for 15 seconds and stir. Do not overheat or boil.
  • Add the citric acid, stir.
  • Set it aside for 10 minutes to allow gelatin to settle and foam to rise.
  • Skim the foam off the gelatin and discard
  • Add in your extract and flash dust and stir to combine
  • Pour the gelatin into your desired molds. I'm using the crystal molds from simicakes.com
  • Use a toothpick to add some swirls of color. Don't add too much.
  • Place the molds on top of a sheet pan and refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours
  • Carefully remove the gummy crystals from the molds and place on top of your cake!
