The Great Jello Fiasco

So I go to make jello for the jello salad for the office pot-luck on Friday.
Thursday morning I make lime jello and put it in the fridge.
Thursday nite I make cherry jello and put it in the fridge.
Friday morning I whip up sweet cream and add sugar and take out what SHOULD be two very well-set pans of jello to cut up and add to the whipped cream...

and I have 2 pans of jello soup.

I cried.

Then I made another 2 boxes of lime jello - and instead of using cold water, I used ice cubes and some more whipping cream... and this time it came out ok, but not as nice as I wanted. I hate jello.

Evil jello filled with gremlins who love to make us suffer covered with whip cream. Sssss!

I didn't know that you could screw up Jello. LOL

I have trouble getting a butterscotch pie filling to be as firm as I would like though.

You people are something else with your Jello! Is it the wiggle in the dish or tickle in the throath? It can't be the taste, that much is clear.

Hey Sewmouse...sorry for your jello troubles, but what can you expect from a food that's main claim to faim is that it giggles.

May you have a very Merry Christmas...without jello!
