Em here, after having a crafty day with my mum, I am now turning to a food Pinstrosity! Elizabeth sent us this doozey in the kitchen, let's check it out!
How stinking cute is that?! And, they turned out PERFECT! Elizabeth's came out considerably different, and not in a good way... :(
From what I can tell, Elizabeth used an actual lego, (the giant ones if you have ever seen them). There are several tips and tricks to making a perfect Jello mold, and they all start with practice practice practice. Jello is a tricky mistress, and often has her way, but try these tips and you should be on your way to "Jell-Lego Land" ;) (Corny I know, would you expect anything less from me?!)
1.Use a Jello mold, they are specifically made for making these tiny gelatin masterpieces...the one the original pin suggested is found here.
2.After following the Jello instructions to a T, (remember Jello is a wild one and is strict with the rules), take the whole thing out of the fridge, and put in a bowl or sink of hot water for around 10 seconds, up to where the top of Jello is (Jello side up, bottom of bowl down!).
3. Next gently shake mold from side to side.
4. Place plate on top and flip over.
5. If it is still sticking try the hot water again, but for less time than the first time, you don't want to warp the mold.
6. Another tip is to stick with plastic and metal molds, they seem to be more user friendly.
