From: Hello, Jell-O!*
*Note that this is not a vintage cookbook, however the sentiment behind this book is definitely vintage inspired. Because this is a new book I won't be posting any photos of the recipe. Should you like to try your hand at it, the recipe can be found here via the author's blog.
The Jell-O Experiment has been a complete success. I am totally back into enjoying gelatin again. Many thanks are due to the vintage cookbooks of yore as well as new inspiration from the blog The Jello Mold Mistress of Brooklyn and the subsequent book Hello, Jell-O! As soon as I saw it I knew I had to give the Rainbow Mold a try.
Creative Cookery: I do what I want
I followed the recipe. Though judging when the mold is ready for the next layer is tricky. I also wasn't sure how many cups my mold would hold so I wasn't 100% sure how many colors I would end up with.
The Flavors: Strawberry, Orange, Lemon, Lime
Aluminum ring mold:
LuRay Pastel plate for serving:
Verdict: Blue Ribbon
Yes, this recipe takes a lot of patience, but it is worth it. I brought the mold to our latest Opening Night at work and it was a big hit. Most people described it as "happiness on a plate." Nice.
