My family is starting to get spoiled. This is the 2nd jello mold I have made in as many days. Mr Man went to the fridge and said "I want Jello, when do we get to take it out of this thing." :) At least he knows that I'm going to photograph it before he gets to eat it so he's not just sticking a spoon in and going to town. Imagine the roid rage that would cause, he does value his life. :)
As surprising disappointed in the way yesterdays Juice and Fruit Salad looked I was equally delighted in the way this one turned out. I was also very surprised. It was ugly sitting in the jello mold, but flipped over and on the plate turned it into a beautiful salad. I loved photographing it. The little bubbles on the jello and the apples magical suspended made it a lot of fun trying to capture.
