When I was a child I had the most amazing birthday parties. Highlights were the games, the novelty cake my mum always made (the Care Bear one was my favourite) and the rabbit shaped jelly. We had a burgundy plastic rabbit-shaped jelly mould that I have always remembered. Anyhoo, I’m getting off the point.
The point is I love a jelly mould. The more vintage, the better. When I came across these jelly mould hanging planters from Angus and Celeste I was at the ready with my bank card. However, I realised they were very expensive and the company is based in Australia and the shipping alone was going to cost $45! I just couldn’t justify spending that much on a hanging planter – although I would happily accept it as a present (Jules, I hope you’re reading this).
So, feeling inspired, I am going to try to make my own next week, but I want to show you the original, just in case you are feeling richer than I am…
If anyone can tell me why jelly is traditionally made in the shape of a rabbit, please let me know!
