My sister gave me this Frozen Smiles ice cube tray a year or two ago and I’ve been meaning to give it a try. These jello dentures came out so well I almost didn’t post them because I thought they looked a little too real. But I decided their ghastly smile would make a fun and kinda ghoulish treat for a Halloween party that both kids and adults alike would find amusing. Enjoy and have a Happy Halloween!

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!

I love cheesecake! But with the heatwave we experienced this summer who wants to slave away over a hot oven. The beauty of this cheesecake, made with cream cheese and sour cream, is no baking! It is rounded out with a strawberry gelatin topping and a cookie crust.

Sweet strawberries and blueberries are suspended in refreshing and bubbly ginger ale. A little rum makes it a party favorite for the adults with an option make it non-alcoholic if you decide you want to share with the kiddies. I wrote this recipe especially for the Cooking Channel where you can find the recipe complete with process photos.  Happy July 4th!

Color Me Jello

Inspired by the colorfully creative and talented Katie Sokoler and her blog Color Me Katie I decided to make a super bright and shiny Color Me Jello. And since it was Katie’s birthday and since she lives in my neighborhood, I decided I’d just pop by and present it to her. Tickled, she took some fun photos of me and my jello. For this jello I followed the Rainbow Mold recipe but added an extra top layer of suspended strawberries. Thanks for the wonderful photo Katie!

Marbled Stained Glass Jello

Inspired by the Stained Glass Jello, I decided to get a little experimental with this year’s 4th of July jello. For these red, white, and blue mini molds I heated up chunks of stained glass jello, pre-made in a pan, directly in the molds themselves over the gas stove. It only took a few seconds for the jello to melt down enough to form to the mold and for the colors to run into this beautiful marbled pattern. For added patriotic enthusiasm, the strawberry and blueberry gelatin is made with a little vodka, all suspended in sweet and creamy condensed milk.  Happy 4th of July!

For the past few months I have been cranking out the heavy, creamy, boozy, winter-time jello molds.  But now that Spring/Summer is finally here, it is time to lighten up. This sweet and refreshing fruit pie was the perfect fit for this past weekend’s backyard brunch party hosted by Art. I used a pre-made shortbread crust which was a great compliment to the tart layer of peaches, strawberries, and blackberries suspended in peach gelatin over a creamy layer of sweetened condensed milk.

Jello Marzipan

This recipe came from the classic Joys of Jell-O recipe book and boasts a new way to make the old fashioned confection. These strawberry, cherry, orange, and banana shaped candies are molded from ground coconut and almonds and are flavored with the corresponding fruit flavored gelatin. Whole cloves and mint leaves put the finishing touches on these tiny fruits. While the taste of the finished product bears little resemblance to actual Marzipan, they are sweet and yummy, especially if you like coconut, and were very fun to make.

For the holiday weekend I made this festive star-shaped mold with blueberries and strawberries set in a layer of clear gelatin.  The white base layer is Guanabana flavored gelatin brought back for me from Mexico by Art. (More exotic Mexican flavors to follow). The flavor was fruity and refreshing, perfect for the very hot weekend. Happy 4th of July!

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!

This year for John’s 5th annual Easy Breezy Birthday Brunch I made one of the more difficult and beautiful jello creations, the Rainbow Jello mold.  This classic favorite is compromised of 10 layers and 5 different flavors, each with a clear fruity layer and a creamy opaque layer of sweetened condensed milk.  As you can see, John loved it and so did everyone else. The recipe for this can be found in a preview of my new book. Happy Birthday John and congratulations on another successful Easy Breezy!

This is a new take on a very old-school recipe and I found it quite tasty. Made with fresh avocado and mayo, it’s a savory mold much like guacamole (minus the onions). Strawberries offer a contrasting flavor and an attractive garnish.

In honor of Valentine’s Day I made these jello replicas of the classic candy message hearts. They can be made with any jello flavor and sweetened condensed milk. I used cake decorating letters for the messages. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Starr told me about this strawberry Jello and cream cheese layered dish with a crushed pretzel crust that was a childhood favorite and a staple at family gatherings in her Pennsylvania hometown growing up. I’ve been wanting try it for a while so I made it for Starr for her birthday. I followed the recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything. (In retrospect I would have used less Cool Whip, as little as one cup, as my cheese layer came out too runny and sweet.)  Happy Birthday Starr!
