Edible lace recipe with corn starch and gelatin
1 Tbsp. Cold water
1 Tsp. Gelatin powder
1 Tbsp + 1/4 Cup water
1 Tbsp. Icing sugar
2 Tbsp. Corn starch
1/2 Tsp. Glycerine (optional)
2 Tsp. White food color (optional)
Mix gelatin with 1 Tbsp. cold water and let it soak for 5-10 minutes.
Mix icing sugar and corn starch with 1 Tbsp. of cold water in a small container.
Boil 1/4 cup of water in a small saucepan.
When the water begins to boil, remove from heat and mix in the icing sugar and corn starch mixture. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens up. (Around 1 minute.)
When the mixture is thick, remove from heat.
Wait for a couple of minutes and then add the soaked gelatin.
Stir until gelatin has dissolved completely and then add glycerine and white food color. Additional food coloring can be added at this time.
Allow the mixture to cool before use.
Store the mixture in an air tight container or wrapped in plastic cling wrap.
Lace mixture can be used immediately to create thin lace or left it in the fridge to thicken up. It can last in the fridge for several days.
