I totally bombed on this Jello American Flag.Happy 4th of July. Today we are attending a party hosted by a good friend. I came up with a unique idea for an American Flag made of Jello. It incorporates red, blue and unflavored gelatin. I sort of had the right idea, it just didn’t turn out. Bloggers always seem to put their best foot forward and show you amazing creations. I am sharing my epic fail.
Patriotic Jello Mold Fail
I have seen those fun stained glass candy Jello around the web. Of course, I wanted to make one, but with a different spin. I took two boxes of red Jello and made it in a small clear glass casserole dish. I made a box of blue Jello in another dish. I let both set up over night. The next day I cut out a square area out of the top left corner of red Jello for the stars. I also removed some strips of red to represent stripes on the flag.I cut out a square area out of the top left corner of red Jello for the stars. I also removed some strips of red to represent stripes on the flag. Then I created the white Jello by missing 2 cups of boiling water with 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin. I let that cool for a little bit and then mixed in a can of sweetened condensed milk and set aside.Next, I cut the blue Jello up into small chunks. I placed the blue Jello chunks into the square area in the dish. Then I poured the white gelatin mixture into the stars and empty stripe areas of my mold. That is where the ugliness began. I failed to remove little bits of red Jello, which just floated into the white stripes. Then the blue stars floated into the top white stripe. I placed the dish into the refrigerator overnight to harden.At this point, I considered ditching the whole thing. Then I remembered that people like to see mistakes, so I am sharing my epic fail with you. In keeping with the current political climate here in the USA, I’ve decided to title my masterpiece Make America Great Again. Isn’t it ugly? Have you ever failed with Jello?Yes, I’m taking it to the party this afternoon.
