This Summer I will be making my niece Molly's third birthday cake. For her first birthday, I made a pastel coloured jungle themed cake to match her gift of a jungle bench I hand-painted in pastels with matching cushion. For her second birthday, I made a cute little house cake to match all the gifts I made and gave her for her playhouse. This year she has asked for a Hello Kitty cake. I'll be making a few other Hello Kitty treats, too. In preparation I have started playing about with ideas...
After a few attempts at making fruit flavoured Hello Kitty jellies, I finally got the taste and texture right. Here's how...
Raspberry jelly candies (makes 24 jellies)
- 1 pack of raspberry jelly (Jello) (135g)
- 4 sheets of gelatine
- 80ml water
- 3 tbsp condensed milk
Tools & equipment
- Hello Kitty mould x2
- Place gelatine sheets in cold water and leave for at least five minutes
- Place raspberry jelly cubes in a microwaveable jug
- Add 80ml of water
- Heat for approx. 1 minute
- Stir until completely dissolved
- Remove soaked gelatine sheets from bowl of water and add to dissolved raspberry jelly mix and stir till dissolved
- Using a pipette, carefully squeeze melted jelly mixture into Hello Kitty bows & noses
- Place the moulds into the fridge
- Add the condensed milk to the remaining melted jelly mixture and stir thoroughly till you have an even colour
- Remove moulds from fridge and pour jelly mixture into moulds
- Place in fridge overnight to set
- Carefully turn out Hello Kitty raspberry jellies
Now I want to play with the colour, as I think the pink looks too dark against the red bow!
Have a sweet day!
