The The Bakers Dozen: Gelitan sheets?

I am making marzipan insects ( lady bugs, ants, catapillars, bees ect.. ) for a birthday cake. I noticed that in " The Cake bible" she metions using gelitan sheets for the wings on her bees. Do you make or buy these?

You buy them. Most pastry wholesalers carry it.

Toots when I first starting doing bees I used gelatin sheets. I found it to be a pain cutting them, then everyone thought it was plastic. Now I use sliced almonds, it's easier and people understand it's edible.

Just a thought...

Thanks, I think I will give Almond slices a try, I just wanted them to look as realistic as possible. But if it will save me the headache, then I think, almonds will be it.
