OFIE- Mochi ice cream. Thursday, April 16, 2009 Mochi is one of my favorite desserts ever.

OFIE- Mochi ice cream

The combination of ice cream with mochi is even better! The first type of mochi ice cream I sampled did not have a chewy shell. I found this to be very disappointing. How can it be called mochi if the outside shell is soft and not chewy? Mochi ice creams come in a variety of flavors including green tea, red bean (azuki), vanilla, mango, strawberry, and chocolate. Pictured here is a mango ice cream mochi and a green tea ice cream mochi.

Out of all the brands I've tried, my favorite is this one: These ice cream mochis are slightly bigger than some of the other brands, and have a good consistency of chewiness in the mochi skin. I recently found a recipe for ice cream mochi. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Unfettered F-U-N . . . Rainbow Jelly Shooter! Rainbow Jelly Shooter Its been a whirlwind at the test kitchen.

Unfettered F-U-N . . . Rainbow Jelly Shooter!

The book is progressing (crossing fingers that it is going to press in early December!) , we have been working on a little something (three little somethings, actually) for Saveur.com, and about a million more actions items cropping up here and there, many of which have not received appropriate attention and are currently housed in a bin marked "anxiety provoking". One of the highlights of our week was a lovely chat with Erin over at Tablespoon.com, who mentioned that they were hosting a Double Rainbow Week, which sounded like such fun!

(And it IS - featured items include double rainbow . . . donuts! So, when the weekend rolled around, rather than trolling cocktail books for jelly shot inspiration, we decided it was high time for a bit of unfettered f-u-n . . . I love the "rainbow" gelatin technique - borrowed from the popular recipe for kids' finger gelatin. Rainbow Cake in a Jar. I’ve always had a penchant for sunshine in a jar.

Rainbow Cake in a Jar

Doesn’t the very phrase itself, “sunshine in a jar,” roll off your tongue and fill your mouth with magic? While I’ve never yet found myself a sunshine in a jar, I think we may have just concocted it in our kitchen tonight. In this simple recipe, a basic white cake is turned into a slew of bright colors, baked to perfection, then topped with a creamy white frosting. Cakes baked in jars can be topped with traditional metal canning lids and stored in the fridge for up to five days. They make a great treat to ship to someone, so long as you can ensure delivery to it’s final destination within 3 days. Tiny Cupcakes - Cupcake Poppers. Is it a macaron?

Tiny Cupcakes - Cupcake Poppers

A whoopie pie? What are you making over there? That’s what we kept hearing when we were creating colorful Cupcake Poppers for the Betty 10 Holiday Trends project. We had way too much fun making these mini cupcake sandwiches- which was the whole point! See, Cupcake Poppers are the recipe we created for the Bright Color, Playful Food holiday trend. And really, what could be more fun than a brightly colored mini cupcake that’s made into a sandwich and filled with fluffy frosting? Here's the recipe: Cupcake Poppers Go ahead. Rainbow Fudge Recipe. Double Rainbow Cake Jelly Shot.

My own August birthday may have also come into play.

Double Rainbow Cake Jelly Shot

Regardless of the impetus, visions of tiny jelly shot “cakes” have been dancing in my head for weeks, so clearly the Tablespoon.com gang couldn’t avoid the Double Rainbow Cake Jelly Shot had they tried! (Luckily, they were all for it!) Although I’m usually a classic cocktail fan, there are times when a sweet, fun girly drink is just the ticket. As such, I’ve sustained a high level of excitement about cake-flavored vodka - the taste is unbelievably pastry-like - without adding a sticky, syrupy, gloopy texture.

Colorful swirled cupcakes. With as many ways as there are to decorate cupcakes, they can be really boring if you just slap some plain icing on them.

Colorful swirled cupcakes

I like to make them fun and interesting, and one of my favorite ways to do that is with colorful, swirled icing. Rather than mix food coloring into the icing, I use it to paint the decorator bag, creating a result so crazy and cool that you won’t believe you got it from such a simple technique. Let me show you how! Gather the supplies The first things you’ll need, of course, are cupcakes and icing! Select the colors The best part about this technique is that you can choose any colors you want and can customize it to the occasion. You’ll be painting from 4 to 6 stripes of color for your icing, but you can repeat colors, so you really only need at least 2 different colors (up to 6 max).

Paint the bags Okay, now for the actual technique! Now use the paint brush to paint stripes of color on the inside of the bag, starting at the tip and going up about 3-4 inches. The results.
