Caramels with edible cellophane wrappers by Heston Blumenthal… EDIBLE CELLOPHANE WRAPPERS. How could I not be excited to try this recipe? Abby (Road’s) and I meticulously planned this two day baking expedition. Petri dishes (proper lab grade) were ordered, glycerol was obtained and candy thermometers were in place. Directions were followed to a “T” (which is not common in my kitchen).
I am heartbroken.
The wrappers evaporated and the ones that didn’t stayed as gelatinous messes in their fancy petri dishes.
Every few days I do internet searches to see if anyone else has any tips on how to make these work. I keep coming up empty. Until then we hope Pinterest has some good ideas for repurposing petri dishes.
