Sheet Gelatin Recipe

This is my basic recipe for making gelatin. Sometimes I let it dry out to make a sheet, sometimes I combine it with corn syrup to make flexible sheets. It's very versatile. 

Ingredients

  • 5 tsp knox powdered gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cool water

Instructions

  1. Pour water into a shallow dish. sprinkle gelatin evenly over the water and let it absorb for 5 minutes

  2. Microwave for 30 seconds, then stir and microwave for another 15 seconds if needed to melt fully

  3. Let sit for 5 minutes and bubbles will rise to the surface and create a white foam. Skim this foam off the surface with a spoon and discard

  4. You can now use this base recipe by combining with metallics, food colors, corn syrup or whatever you need. Store leftovers covered in a container in the fridge.
