A Jiggly Treat

J is for Jello

 
Can you believe I’ve never made Jello? It’s a staple at most of our large family gatherings but it’s never one I’ve been in charge of. Jay is not a fan of Jello, except in one instance: Aunt Debbie’s Jello Cake. That thing disappears so fast! He (and all of his cousins) run (literally) to grab a scoop of it. A couple days before each party, and a couple days after, I hear love sonnets about this dessert. I’m pretty sure if it was a person, he would have married it instead of me. 
 
Long story short, I made a modified version of the jello cake. I’ll have to wait until he gets home to know if it compares to his aunt’s. 
 
 
 
Kiy’s Jello Push-Up Pops
 
  • 1 box strawberry jello (I used Great Value)
  • 1 box vanilla pudding (Again, Great Value)
  • Milk – to make pudding as directed on box
  • 1 Angel food cake
  • Fresh whipped cream
  • Treat Pop Holders (Wilton brand)
Prepare jello as directed on box. Chill in a 9×13 pan until set. Prepare pudding as directed on box and allow to set. Slice cake into thirds vertically. Use the pop holder to cut circles in the cake and jello. Assemble pops alternating between the four ingredients!
 
I actually won these in a Cupcake Wars, but that is a story for another day…
I created a little make shift holder for them.
 
 
Tips: 
  • Clean the sides of the holder as you go. It will give more distinct layers. 
  • Use a baby spoon to smooth out pudding and whipped cream. 
  • Put cake down as your first layer to create a firm foundation.
  • Let sit over night. The layers settle and infuse their flavors into each other.
