Rob and Monica are a fun couple I know from the FaceBook. They enjoy first wave British Punk Rock, shopping for vintage housewares and collecting mid-Century design. For Rob’s birthday this past week, Monica presented her true love with the dessert pictured above, which Rob described as a “Jello Cake with Clowns.”
“It really was not cake,” Monica clarified, “it was just Jello with Redi Whip on top! I used a vintage red Pyrex bowl and vintage clowns (Rob likes clowns) and a vintage birthday cake sign.” Who would not want a girlfriend who would make them such a fun and personalized dessert? Monica further explained that she made the Jello because Rob already had cake at work, and then they had more cake the next day at her sisters. And, as they say, there is always room for Jello.
The awesome photo above was posted on FaceBook over the weekend by my neighbor and friend, Mary. The photograph clearly depicts a festive and inarguably unique dessert prepared by Mary’s mom, which consists of strawberry Jello gelatin dessert studded with delicious Andes chocolate mint candies. Mary says her brother in law nailed it when he described the flavor as being similar to “eating an apple while brushing your teeth.” Eeeexcellent.

Thinking back on the Jello Model City of San Francisco, you can’t deny that gelatinous substances look fantastic when illuminated from within! This chandelier is made almost entirely out of strung together Gummy Bear candies and was created by artist YaYa Chou. Such gorgeousness!
