Our 3 favourite jelly moulds guaranteed to cause a wobble
Three ways to break the mould.
1. Party pooch jelly mould
The ultimate wobbly woofer (don't blame us … that's the sell on their website).
2. Giant jelly baby mould
Because jelly babies are the ultimate things in jelly form. This is a homage to that.
3. Rainbow jelly mould
You can use this jelly mould and four different colours of jelly to make a rainbow-shaped colourful dessert. We want one. Now.
Getting the jelly out of the mould in one piece
Don’t bash it about and hope that it’s going to come out. Try these tips instead:
- Brush or spray a thin layer of flavourless oil (such as sunflower or vegetable oil) all over the inside of your mould to stop the jelly sticking
- Carefully run a knife around the edge of the mould once the jelly is set to loosen it up a bit
- Dip the mould briefly in very hot water (for about 10 seconds) before you invert it on a plate
- Invert it, tap it, say a little prayer and leave it. Eventually it will fall out. It’s the law of gravity.
