I asked Margarita how it was made and she said her sister makes unflavored gelatin and poured it into the container and when it is set, she uses syringes to insert dye into the gelatin and makes the designs. The flowers look real. It takes a whole lot of artistic creativity to come up with these beautiful creations. They seemed too beautiful to eat and she said a lot of people take photos of them before eating them. I went to the locker for the camera and did just that. I sliced through the gelatin with a little plastic knife and was curious to see the inside. It was flavored with coconut and tasted good.
Paul was there and we shared one and decided to keep the other. Margarita said her sister gives classes for 250 pesos each in her home to show how she makes these. She said the sister’s daughter had gone on a mission and had watched someone make these gelatin designs and paid attention. The daughter returned home and showed her mother how to do them. Apparently there are places where they can buy these little cups with lids for not too much here.
