Get Ready for this Jelly (a.k.a. Career Plan B)
Jello is traditionally associated with 1950s housewifery and Mormon potlucks in Utah, but its time to move Jello into the 2000s.
Step 1- Make the jello - Jello itself is easy enough to make if you go the instant packet route. If you want to be more high-end about it you can make it from scratch and impress the ladies/dudes.
Buy or make a mold, boil some water, add gelatin and then add some other ingredients (sugar, fruits, etc.). Put it in the fridge to set and head to bar review class.
The hard part is making jello not boring. I suggest taking cues from the UK jellymongers duo Bompas & Parr:
a) Make jello from molds of historic buildings (St. Paul's above), Buckingham Palace or the Pyramids
b) That's not impressive enough? Make city- or country-scapes! (San Fran, the U.S.)
c) Make club-worthy jello (glow in the black lights - ow ow!)
