The award goes to......

The 84th Academy Awards are tomorrow and for the last couple of weeks, I've been working on some molds that are apt for the ceremony.  Two of the molds are mine and one is a candy mold I purchased from a mold maker in England.  In addition to the Award Gelatins, I've also made a Red Carpet Roll-Up.  

For the statue mold making, it was a more challenging process that with the Jell-Obama.  I wanted to make a mold using 3D design software and a 3d printer. It took several months to find a group that does 3d printing but found the MakerBot Meetup here in the Boston area.

Gelology Birthday Platter

Here's a peak at a birthday platter I was commissioned to create.  There were Salted Caramel Chocolate pudding gels,  Gelebration floats,  Gelatinas Artisticas, and Alphagels. The 40's and Flowers were citrusy lemon drop flavor.

Hot and Tart Hearts

Happy Valentine's Day!  

Today's post concludes my series of Valentine's Day themed gelatins.  These gelatins are made from tart cherry juice and homemade Red Hots simple syrup. The Red Hots add a spicy cinnamon snap that plays wonderfully with the tart cherry juice.  

The tiny white hearts are not conversation hearts so commonly found at candy stores this time of year, but made from milk gelatin. I cut out tiny milk gelatin hearts with an teeny tiny cookie cutter and embedded them into the tart cherry and Red Hots gelatin.  Talk about patience....

A Happy Valentine's Day to one and all!

Chocolate Port Gelatin in Strawberries

Continuing on with Valentine's themed edible cocktails, I introduce a chocolate port wine gelatin inside of real strawberries. 

I love walking around the produce aisle and trying to figure out what can I hollow out and fill with gelatin. There are so many possibilities.

For the Wedding Open Studios, I wanted to create something decadent, simple to eat with no cups, stems, or peels to dispose of.  Strawberries make the perfect gelatin bite sized container and the chocolate port wine inside blends well with the tart and sweet berries.   

To up the chocolate anty, I then rolled the edges of the berries with dark chocolate chips.

Roses and Raz

Valentine's Day is almost upon us and I have some creations to take us there. Today's post features a variation on a previous recipe with new photos. 

Roses and Raz is a great combination of Raspberry gelatin, rose water, white wine,  lime juice, and elderflower syrup.  These treats are perfect for weddings and Valentine's day nibbles. Sweet and floral with a bit of bite from the lime.

February has become the month of hyped holidays-  Groundhog's Day, The Superbowl,  Valentine's Day, and The Academy Awards.  For us at Gelology, that just gives us a reason to put on our creativity caps and go to town.  

Here's the first in a series of Valentine's Day of Edible Cocktails.  They're a variation of my Snowflake snow globes, but this time with a gelatin heart and edible gold glitter.  

Introducing Cinnamon Heart Glitter Globes. A perfect way to show someone you love them.....  or that you really love shiny things.
