Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from Edie the Hamster, the real Jello Mold Mistress of Brooklyn! (More of my ham-tastic photography can be found here.)

  1. My best friend in Ohio keeps linking me here because she loves your hamster and because I live in Brooklyn (Williamsburg), and I have to admit that up until three days ago, I thought Jell-o was stupid. My great-aunt, who is 80-something and crazy, makes her grandmother’s red-and-green-Jell-o-and-mixed-fruit combo for Christmas every year, and I think it’s the worst dessert possible, because why would you eat Jell-o when there are cupcakes and cookies with FROSTING? So when she offered me the Jell-o on the 23rd, I was like, “Naw,” but she made me eat some, and for some reason, it was especially delicious. Delicious like it had never been in Christmases past. And I’m sort of convinced it’s because you’ve given me the slightest appreciation for Jell-o.

    1. Glad I can change your mind about jello! Most of my jellos are made with either sweetened condensed milk (creating more of a stiff pudding than jello) or with booze. Both of these things make my jellos more special than the average jello!! I think I’m going to have to start using “This is not your grandmother’s jello.” as my catch phrase.

  2. I found your blog via CuteOverload and couldn’t be more delighted! I love to make jello molds for friends’ birthdays and holidays and I’m slowly winning over some of the “jello haters” I know.

    I am beyond impressed with your creativity and skill – what do you use as a “mold release”? Non-stick spray? Do you find plastic or metal molds easier to work with? Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Thanks!

      I don’t use any cooking spray. I did once and it made the mold not super smooth on the outside. I just submerge the whole mold in the sink full of hot-ish water.

      I prefer the metal molds. The jello seems to want to stick to the plastic ones.
