I Open At The Close... Harry Potter Golden Snitch Shots!

Hello Gelophiles,

This is the shot I've been so excited to make. Edible Golden Snitches. The brilliance of J.K. Rowling is that she made a seven part book series where so much is tied together in the end. Things from book one play a significant part in book 7.  And thus is the tale of the Golden Snitch.

If you recall, Harry Potter catches the first snitch, an enchanted golden sphere that zooms around the Quidditch court. Uhm Quidditch is a wizarding sports games played on brooms.  Okay, this is difficult to explain if you aren't a fan of the books and movies.

Suffice it to say, Harry catches a snitch in his mouth in book one and this story comes back into play in book 7, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. A plot perfect for a molded gelatin shot. 

And here it is!

All Hail King Slurpee!!!

Hello Gelophiles,

Today is July 11th, aka 7-11. Every year on this date the convenience store chain 7-11 gives out free Slurpees.  I decided to take one of their Slurpees and doctor it up.

As a kid my mom used to doctor things up. She'd add some oregano and grated parmesan cheese to a can of Campbell's soup- voila gourmet. Or chopped apples and a dash of cinnamon to Quaker Instant Oatmeal. We were fancy like that.

So here's my doctored up version of a Pina Colada Slurpee.

Hello Gelophiles,

The photos are in from the Gowanus Studio Jell-O Mold Competition. These really show you the creativity of the contestants.

Harry Potter Shotters- Version 1

Hello Gelophiles,

The buzz has been huge for the final Harry Potter movie. I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see how it ends. Ok, I know how it ends. I've read the series three times.... I do have a life outside of Gelatin shots. Wait that sounds really nerdy.

Moving on. In honor of the premiere I've been working all weekend on some shots specific to Harry Potter. Here's my first release.
