Hello! I hope all of you are doing well! Man! I miss blogging so much! I guess any blogger has to face busy schedules, and even photo retouching before hitting that "publish" button, but I sure would like to have a recipe for managing it all! :)
Alas! In the craziness called life, my sweet neighbor - those that are like precious stones: rare and amazing - had a little mishap. And I decided to turn around, take a break and prepare something he mentioned he really liked: Mosaic Jello!! Woohoo!!
This is such a fun and easy to do recipe. I first blogged about it in Squares in my Jello, when I made some for a Christmas party at church, and it has been quite a hit!
Ever since, making another post showing a wider variety of colors has been in my mind, so here it goes!
Just a little parenthesis: if you would like to make this jello, please read my previous post, where the recipe is described step by step.
Yes, COLOR!! This is what this jello is about. I did not pay much attention to the flavors, I just wanted COLOR!! Lime, pineapple, fruit punch and grape made it to the final product and it was actually quite yummy. :)
Here are they after setting... It was hard to keep Mr. Fuzz away from these! He really appreciates Mr. D, and he knew this was for him - probably this was the only reason that kept him away, hehe...
And after scoring the jello to get the little squares...
...in they go to a beautiful bundt pan! Yes, I know... As usual, I cannot make things simple, and I really wanted to make something special. At this point, feel free to spray the inside or very lightly oil the pan to make sure that nothing sticks. Give it a little shake to make sure that colors are mixed.
Oh! I also had some punch cups leftover, and I went ahead and made individual portions so that mom and dad could have a bit. By the way, one of these never made it to be a mosaic... Mr. Fuzz got there first... I'll let you put 2 and 2 together, hehehe
(Mental note: Mr. Fuzz really enjoyed these jello cubes, so they could be a good munchy treat for him!)
And here they are, right after taking them out of the fridge!! So excited!! The challenge was the bundt pan; grandma used to warm up water, but...
...I found out that using water at room temperature would work just as well. (Sigh!) I used lukewarm water and the jello started to dissolve... This would have looked so pretty and not smeared, but at least I can suggest not to warm up the water! lol
Mr. D was so happy! Mrs. D thought it look beautiful! :) They are such gentle and sweet people! The flavor was great as well!
And here are the little individual servings. These are what I was talking about in my first post about the mosaic jello, when I talked about making this an individual experience, or adapting it to the event.
Just imagine how easy cleanup would be! And these little cups of yumminess make such a nice centerpiece!
I hope you try making this fun jello. It's yummy, different and so easy to make!
