You asked me about "bling" Monica. I realized, I never answered you. Haven't had a occasion to use it. Haven't had a customer who was a "bling" type.

I finally got that sugar flowerbook Monica this past friday. It shows me how to use ALL the Jem cutters I have. Very detailed instructions.  Won't be doing too much practing for awhile. Had a wall removed & beam put in ceiling. I am slowly removing the popcorn sprayed stuff on the ceiling. Slow & painsating. There is dust everywhere. Andas soon as I finish the ceiling, I will be painting. So, decorating stuff is on hold.

I will ck it out.  Funny, my family gave me a surprise 60th/retirement party this past Saturday. ( I'm a Canada day baby ).  Had a inkling, and when we got to the restaurant, I knew. They  headed me towards  the banquet room.  I thought in my head, I won't have a birthday cake, cause I'm the only one who does them in my family..Ha! Ha!  My daughter did make lovey & tasty cupcakes though.  My son gave me a cool teflon coated cupcake holder, small one to use for a simple presentation.  I'm so glad they didn't get me a Costco cake....yuk

I have see your work/photos Monica, and you are no slouch.  You make a quality product.  Sometimes friends & family are the worst.  Since it is a "hobby"......how hard can it be.  I had a laugh about 6 mnths ago as my sis-in-law ( no it all, sorry, byt she is ), thought she could make fondant, roll it out make F roses for her grandaughters B-day cake.  Well I have to say, she ate crow.  Not like her to admit defeat, but she said she had no idea the talent, finesse & time it took.  It looked so easy.  So, I  must say, that was a feather in my cap.  Just wish I had her on "video".  Ha! Ha!

Ya, I here you. I was pretty wiped out for a couple if days. My daughter's 4th A us coming up end of this mnth. I didn't do as much for the wedding as I would have liked as Sam is a control freak. Can't point a finger, cause she got it from me. I am also too much of a perfectionist, & sometimes that's good & bad. Kinda puts stress on doing a cake cause there really isn't a "perfect" cake. I don't do too many paying customers, mostly family events. Now that I am recently retired, I have more time, and since my friends & family know I do this, perhaps I may get business from word if mouth. A very dear friend who passed young from breast cancer got me started in caking years ago. She said, June, if you really, really, want to enjoy decorating, and avoid the stress, DON'T go into business. She did for about 10 yrs. & got fed up with the difficult clients. She went into homecare like me, & enjoyed doing her cakes on the side. I miss her, she was a sweetheart.

I had to shape the wire myself, which was very tedious and difficult for me to do. I wish they had a pre-arranged wire to dip. But good enough I guess. You can tell it's a butterfly. Here is a picture of the petal as well so you can see how nice of a jewel it would make. I am so happy about getting this information, thanks!

Well, I tried the gelatin from the instructions you suggested and I am pleased to report that (although it may not appear so) it turned out PERFECT! I now know what I am going to do now that I have the means to make butterflies how I want to make them. I must say, it seems like this method will make absolutely beautiful jewels if I ever need them as well.

I had time to read the instructions today. I think I am going to try to make a couple of butterflies this afternoon. I will post pictures if it works for me. I'm pretty excited. I really have to get a cake going so someone needs to have a birthday soon!

thanks so much! That information is really valuable to me! I can't wait to try it. I just have a beautiful cake in mind and I need glass-looking butterflies to do it. I really really appreciate your help.

thanks for the friend request! Thanks for the information earlier on making diamonds too (not neccessarily because of diamonds - I want to try to make butterflies) but I've been trying for a while! I didn't even know where to begin, and now I have somewhere! What a fabulous sit ethis is!
