Is there ever an occasion for which a jelly brain is not appropriate-
Perhaps, but for all the others this mould is perfect. I love it.
My first attempt with the brain mould was a complete flop (heheh), but the
next one worked out a lot better. Probably requires a slightly higher gelatin to
water ratio for it to work as well as it does in the picture. DON'T LISTEN TO
THE JELLY PACKET INSTRUCTIONS. More crystals, less water and it'll work a treat
Just add a few gummy worms to the mix for the ultimate maggot infested
We found that one packet of jelly was no where near enough to fill the mould,
also use less water and more Jelly mix Looks really cool with worm lollies in
I've been on the hunt for a decent jelly mould for ages so this was a great
find. It is the left hemisphere of a brain and reasonably realistic. I wasn't
too impressed by the two recipes that came with this mould though, as I believe
that they don't live up to its true ghoulish potential.
There are many wonderful recipes online, and I came across one called
‘Bleeding Brains Jello’ for a Halloween offering. I tried a simpler version
with lime green jelly and a gooey filling of cooked blackcurrants. The end
result was rather gruesome, but could have been firmer, because although the
jelly did come out of the mould easily, it did split open slightly to reveal the
fruity innards. As others have suggested, I will be trying 3 packets of jelly
with the liquid for 2 packets in the next experiment. The jelly did come out of
the mould really easily.
I am pleased with this purchase and will be trying out savoury creations as
well, because this mould is fairly solid, I think that anything cold that is
capable of being set in a mould would be perfect for this. I would recommend
this product to anyone who loves food, has a sense of humour, and loves to try
Didn't realize it was half a brain, but the quality of the product was
excellent – very sturdy. I followed the recipe on the packet to make a milky
life-like brain and added raspberry sauce. The kids loved it!!
