A few weeks ago I was sent an invitation to a pot luck here in Bakersfield at Grace Episcopal Church. I don’t normally go to church but since I am trying to be a part of the gay community in Bakersfield, I figured I would pitch in with something. What better dish than a gay pride jello mold? Of course I have never made a jello mold in my life so I’m hoping this works out so wish me luck lol.
I found the idea because I was curious to see if it was even a real thing and I found an image. I also found a recipe on a typepad blog called Porter House complete with pictures for all of the steps.
They don’t show any measurements or what size boxes you need. The instructions just say to use half of the jello then use the other half with the yogurt or cool whip. Of course I had to pour water into the mold to make sure I knew how much it could hold so I don’t make any mistakes. Mine holds 13 cups so I can do 2 layers of each color which is 1 cup each layer. It doesn’t have to be filled to the top.
I will be using cool whip because I’m not a huge yogurt fan. I’d rather use something light anyway because this thing is going to have so many calories and I don’t want to make everyone fat lol.
My gay pride jello mold is finished but I have to leave it in the mold overnight. I will take it out tomorrow before we go to the church so I can get a picture then. It took me 3 hours to make so it better not fall apart when I take it out of the mold lol. We will see tomorrow.
