Is my Blog Burning is an international cooking event this month the theme is JELLY This month it is hosted by Simply Recipes A big thanks to Dreska for her advice.

In the Jellied patriotic spirit I decided to Make the above. Contains Organic Strawberries and Real whipped cream, and 7up. I wanted to do something original that showed spirit, this is what I came up with. This is my first IMBB entry and I think it will only get better from here.

Click Here for the round up for IMBB 15 .. I am proud of me for entering... even though it looks amaturish against some of the other entries.. but I will rock the next one..

    Hi Templar,
    It definetely looks original. You can always mention in your post about which IMBB it is for and who is hosting it and maybe leave a link.
    Also, usually people write up some story around making that or the other of their IMBB recipe choice.
    You could serve it as a national celebration dessert. :)
    Very original!

    I just had to say that it's not just pretty.... it's tasty too. It's nice having fruit gelatin that doesn't taste like artificial flavouring. Well done!
