Jello Mold.

Have you ever seen a jello mold before? I went to a baby shower for a good friend a couple of weeks ago and they had two there. I don't remember seeing a jello mold ever before, but I have to admit, when I saw one of these I was pretty amazed.

So, the first one seemed like a jazzed up, but still fairly standard version. It involved some kind of milk product (possibly condensed), which is what turned it white.

Since I LOVE condensed milk, I went for it.

The flavor was very mild and subtle and the texture was no different than normal jello. It was tasty and I liked it.

The other jello mold was the fanciest floral masterpiece I think I'll probably ever see created out of gelatin.

I was sure there was an artificial flower set into the middle. But when I saw someone easily slice all the way through the middle of it, I couldn't believe my eyes.

The entire piece was jello.

I have no idea how this voodoo magic was created, but I was impressed to say the least.

Do you know how to make these? If so, please share!

Of course you got me curious, so I googled it and ended up watching videos of people making these things. They use a syringe and inject the colored jello petals into a solid clear jello mold that's already been made. Who thought of this?

Here's one such video:

Yay, my shower made your blog! I never had either one before but I did find out the one with the flowers had brandy in it! Who sends a dessert full of liquor to a baby shower!?! Oh my mother-in-law does!

This is amazing, though I'm sure if I attempted it, my molds would end up looking like colorful poo.

Also, brandy in jello sounds like the best idea ever.

The first one reminds me of Haribo gummies that I'm addicted to. I have to try and make one of those!

I live in Utah, the capitol of all things Jello, and I have NEVER seen anything that impressive. Really, I am in awe. I wonder how it tasted...

MANDY - Someone at the party mentioned a syringe being involved in the making of it, but I thought there HAD to be a better way to do this. I think you've just proved me wrong.

CHRISTINA - What?!? There was brandy in it?? Was it cooked off or totally 100%??

LORRAINE - Yes, mine too. In fact, I I'm pretty sure I don't have the patience to even try this. So I'll leave the syringe work to the pros.

SIMONE - I know, isn't it cool? I actually didn't try any of the flower one because it was too fancy to eat.

SARA - You're the not the first person I've heard of who's addicted to Haribo gummies. Unfortunately, I've never been into the gummies. That addiction is not something I'm familiar with.

LIBBY - Ha! Are jello molds big in Utah?? I had no idea.

One must travel back to the '70s to make Jello. Is that where you were?
