Hi and thanks TooTTiFruiTTi! You have made me very curious about water bomb balloons now lol! I just made them by hand using fondant with tylose to harden. I did them much as you would the center of a rose – form a basic balloon shape, bend a tiny hook or loop into the end of your wire, add a little glue to the hook and push into the base about half way into the balloon. The roll the balloon between your palms gently to secure the hook inside the balloon. I stood them up in foam for a few hours to firm, then turned and hung as you do rose centres. I slid a lttle circular ‘pyramid’ of fondant down the wire and glued in place to secure to look like the balloon end. When everything was completely dried I brushed them with leaf glaze….is the water bomb balloon technique easier? :)
