How it’s done
to the best of my knowledge this art was originated in Mexico, thou some say Japan and the flowers are completely edible.
“When people see it for the first time, they usually ask, ‘How did you get the flower in there?’” they were amazed at the color and detail, they refuse to cut it but when they taste it for the first time, they always come back for more.
I learned a technique from several teachers and eventually developed my own easier faster technique and tools, to simplify the process so much so that a 10 Years old can dmake a flower at first attempt.
To begin, I make clear gelatin, usually in a round mold. The powder is mixed with distilled water, citric acid, sweetener and flavor, then sets up in about several hours and can be enhanced with flavors.(see recipe under recipes tab)
When the gelatin is firm, I turn the mold over. This is where the technique begins. With a variety of styluses, i cut into the bottom of the gelatin, making flower petals, leaves and a stamen.
Then, with bright, edible, milk-based gelatin, I insert colors into the cuts. Depending on the type of flower, the color may be inserted with a syringe, eyedropper or metal star tip, the kind normally used with a pastry bag and more.
The time it took to make a flower is 5 minutes, Advanced practitioners can put animals and other shapes into the gelatin and then again “practice makes Perfect”
