The US Supreme Court took a huge step for mankind today, by passing the law that turns same-sex marriage a reality.

Congratulations to everyone that is working hard to reduce, and eliminate, prejudice not only here but worldwide!

Love – in any of its expression – should always be celebrated and supported.


Gummy Lego-Guys

I have been waiting for a while to post this recipe and today sounded like a good opportunity.

You will need:

  • 1/4 cup of corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 1 envelope of unflavored gelatin
  • 1 box of flavoured gelatin (Cherry, Orange, Pineapple, Lime, Blueberry, Grapes – or any other 😉 )
  • Lego-guys molds

What to do:

  • Completely dissolve the corn syrup on the water.
  • Add the unflavored gelatin and the flavoured gelatin and stir thoroughly, letting it rest for 2 minutes.
  • Cook it in medium-low heat for approx. 10 minutes (the time may vary depending on the flavour… I really don’t know why), keep stirring it. Don’t let it come to boil!
  • After getting a slightly creamy consistency, pour into molds and let it cool in the fridge.

Tips:

  • The deeper your mold the longer it will take to chill (but overall it is really fast)
  • If the heat is too high, the mixture will burn (trust me… :/ ).
  •  The gummies are a bit sticky… if you want them “unsticky” coat them with powdered sugar, castor sugar or pearl dust. But they will lose the awesome vitral glare.
  • This recipe will work in virtually every silicone mold which can be a really nice way to put that extra wow on your cakes/cupcakes.
  • This recipe give you 1 1/2 cup of liquid gummy syrup.

    • I have never tried with other syrups… but since the purpose of the glucose (corn syrup) is more to give flavor than provide stability to the recipe I don’t see why it would not work. I’ll give it a try sometime. If you do try, please post your conclusions 😉 Just make sure the syrup is well diluted in water, some syrups brake when mixed with water and these are not a good substitute.
