Baby Jello Shots 3

What goes better with office workers and babies-to-be but pink and blue jello shots? These were made especially for a surprise office baby shower for a couple of coworkers each having a baby, one boy and one girl. Watermelon flavored with creamy condensed milk and topped with little plastic babies, these were the highlight of the surprise and only a little creepy.

French 75

Admittedly, I have been absent from the jello blogosphere for some time. My new job has been just the new start I needed and has also kept be super busy. But…. summer is here and with it comes more summer cocktail inspired jellos!  Thus, I give you The French 75. An iconic drink of New Orleans made with gin (or cognac, depending on who you ask), lemon juice and topped with champagne. These jello shot versions (made with gin) were in celebration of a co-worker’s recent New Orleans destination wedding and again for a Memorial Day cookout to usher in the long awaited warm weather.

You might be surprised to learn that The Jello Mold Mistress has a day-job. As much as I wish I could make jello full time, it doesn’t fully support my fancy lifestyle the high cost-of-living in Brooklyn. That said, I just landed a new day-job that I am very exciting about which means that jello has take a backseat for the past couple of weeks. But, with the holidays coming up, I wanted to take the time to post more stuff! This recipe can be found in my book Hello Jell-O!. It’s an autumn inspired jello that mixes carrots and cream cheese with the warm flavors of vanilla and cinnamon and would make a great addition to the Thanksgiving dessert table. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Bye Bye Big Apple Jello Shots

Bye Bye Big Apple Jello Shots

I’m at that age. The age where its time to start saying goodbye to good friends and fun buddies as they take the next step into our delayed adulthood and flee the big city in search of backyards and better school districts… Yup, that’s right. The suburbs. While I plan on staying an urbanite and living in a tiny, overpriced apartment forever, I recently celebrated the departure of some very good friends as they said goodbye to the Big Apple and hello to a four-bedroom brick colonial in a land far, far away. West Orange, New Jersey. Served at a BBQ in their honor, Bye Bye Big Apple jello shots are shaped like tiny apples and made with bourbon, sour apple liqueur and cranberry juice.

Good luck in the ‘burbs, friends! I’ll be out to visit as soon as you get that hot tub set up.

Blood Orange Margarita

Summer in the city can be brutal. August has brought with it a stifling heat wave that has lasted for weeks driving everyone, myself included, out of Brooklyn and onto the beach. Escape the heat with Blood Orange Margarita jello shots. Served in orange rinds, a mixture of silver tequila, triple sec, and refreshing blood orange San Pellergrino tastes just like summer and is the perfect way to enjoy booze on the beach…. just don’t drop them in the sand.

Piña Colada Shots

Pina Colada Shots

I could start this post with a joke about Rupert Holmes’ The Piña Colada Songbut I won’t. What I will say is that it’s summer and what better way to enjoy the warm weather than with a cold cocktail jello shot! Puerto Rico’s national drink since 1978 has just gotten a gelatin make-over. These little pineapple-shaped and flavored shots are made with coconut milk and a generous amount of rum. They were served up at Art & Marty’s house warming party and were a smash! As part of a series of summer themed jello shots I created for The Food Network, click through for the recipe and enjoy!

I am a huge fan of Cuddly Rigor Mortis‘ paintings of anthropomorphic food and animals (sometimes cavorting together) and jump at the opportunity to feature her jello mold related work. This painting showcases the special bond between a green jello mold and his cherry-on-top… that bond being a dollop of whipped cream. Cute! “Jiggle” is from her upcoming solo show Happy Food at Gallery 1988 in LA that opens May 15th. If you’re in the area, check it out!

Rainbow Cookie Shots

Tricolor cookie shots2

Tricolor cookies, Napoleon cookies, seven layer cookies, Italian flag cookies… regardless of what you call them, the almond flavored, chocolate covered, sponge cake squares I refer to as Rainbow Cookies are one of my very favorites (along with the Black & White Cookie and my mother’s chocolate chip). So, for a recent spring brunch party I decided to make my own jello shot versions. Pink, white and green layers of almond flavored sweetened condensed milk spiked with cake flavored vodka and topped with creamy, gelatinized chocolate liquor were as good as the real thing… and better if you consider that they were laden with booze!

I don’t know what’s happening where you are but here in Brooklyn its still cold despite it being almost April. I took a little jello-hiatus over the long, cold winter but rest assured warm weather and more jello both on their way! I have been working on some very special recipes for eHow and the Food Network for the summer season and will be unveiling them soon. In the meantime, enjoy this yummy looking strawberry jelly illustration that reminds me of one of my late and great jello creations, the Swedish Fish. Happy spring!

false teeth

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!
