Mardi Gras starts this Tuesday! So before you go giving up anything for Lent, why not partake in some indulgent jello shots. Modeled after the traditional Mardi Gras King Cake, these tiny, crown-shaped treats are made with sweetened condensed milk, cake flavored vodka and a hint of lemon. Have a happy Fat Tuesday!

With homemade Nutella buttercream frosting!
This year for Victor‘s birthday I wanted to make something extra special. I have made Jello Poke Cake in the past but wanted to trying something that would be easier to serve to a dozen friends out for a birthday brunch in the neighborhood. These vanilla cupcakes are special because they have stripes of strawberry rum jello inside. They are topped with an icing made with a blend of butter, sugar, and everyone’s favorite Nutella (an entire jar!). These were a sell-out hit at Victor’s brunch, everyone had two. Happy Birthday Victor!

My friend Kelly LOVES cake. So to commemorate her birthday this year I made this Jello Poke Cake. It is a basic white cake with holes poked in it and liquid jello poured in and allowed to set. Typically it is made with fruit favors, as this cake’s top layer is strawberry, but I wanted to try something different for the bottom layer. I used D’Gari pistachio gelatin dessert made with milk and it was creamy and delicious! The cake is frosted with whipped cream. (The recipe can be found on the Kraft Foods website.) Happy Birthday Kelly!
