In keeping with our children’s party theme from last week, we thought we would try SUCK UK’s Rainbow Jelly Mould, a perfect treat for younger children and great fun to make! We tried a number of different flavour combinations for this sweet treat, so have a little read and try it out for yourself!
Classic rainbow: Strawberry, Lemon, Raspberry, Lime
Tropical : Tangerine, Orange and Pineapple, Lemon, Lime
Tutti Frutti : Blackcurrant, Raspberry, Strawberry, Blueberry
1. Use half a pack of jelly for each layer. Add slightly less water than suggested by the packet guidelines so that the jelly remains sturdy.
2. Leave each layer to cool for 20 minutes before adding the next.
3. When you have finished layering the jelly, leave to cool for a couple of hours.
4. To release the jelly from the mould, place it in a bowl of hot water and let it slide out onto your plate!
Always put the darkest colour at the bottom of the mould (top of the rainbow) – if you add a darker colour to a lighter colour, the darker colour will leak through to the bottom of the mould.
Wipe the inside of the mould ever-so slightly with vegetable oil, to make sure it doesn’t stick.
If you have any extra jelly, pour them into ramekins or jars and keep for after-dinner treats throughout the week.
Add evaporated milk to the jelly to make creamier layers like the one below!
This is definitely one of the easiest products we have tried here at IWOOT, you are guaranteed colourful and beautiful jelly displays for parties or summer holiday fun at home. If you don’t fancy buying lots of different colours, just use one and add ice cream clouds to the jelly for new kids treat ideas! Apart from the boiling water, this is also a very child friendly activity -there’s only a little waiting around for the jelly to set and it’s more than worth it for the ear-to-ear smile when the rainbow masterpiece is revealed! As an added bonus, our rainbow jelly moulds are in our 3 for £20 range, so go on, treat yourself!
