(The surprise is rum!)

For Rebecca‘s birthday this year I made this fruity and festive summer mold with mango gelatin, mango rum, and cantaloupe.  I found these mini cookie cutters at a shop in Chinatown and they were perfect for cutting the cantaloupe into fun star and flower shapes for the mold.  The folks at The Redhead were kind enough to let me bring my jello in and serve it after our celebratory meal despite their list of gourmet desserts.  

The evening ended with a pile temporary tattoos being creatively altered and applied to the birthday girl. Included is this tribute to my boozy dessert, giving new meaning to the phrase “There’s always room for Jello!”.  I am truly honored.

Happy Birthday Rebecca!

  1. The other surprise was the refreshing mango breeze that filled the air when the jello was unveiled!

  2. This looks really inviting to eat in the evening and would be a refreshing dessert after a light meal. I think that maybe manderin orange slices would be great too instead of the c-melon.
    Keep up the great tast-e creations and yes…..
    ‘There is always room for jell-o!’
