More About This Recipe
  • Get the Mardi Gras party swinging, because here comes the cake!

    Take your Mardi Gras celebrating from bling to blam with this pretty molded gelatin that just shouts French Quarter. It’s like the ultimate jelly shot turned into a three layer cake o’ booze. Pure party va-voom.

    To get this cake going, grab three kinds of gelatin – grape, lemon, and lime – and some cake vodka and sour cream.

    Start by spraying a nonstick bundt pan or gelatin mold with nonstick baking spray. Then gently wipe off any excess.

    Now you're going to want to follow the instructions in the recipe to a T, but it goes something like this:

    Whisk together the first gelatin powder with boiling water and vodka, and pour into the prepared pan. Chill. Then do a second layer of the same color with the sour cream included for a nice opaque difference. Chill again.

    Repeat with the second gelatin flavor, and a second gelatin layer with sour cream. Then repeat with the third gelatin flavor. And... you get the idea.

    6 layers later, all you need is a plate and a bunch of Mardi Gras beads. Or whatever seems the right thing to wear when you suck down spiked and wiggly King Cake.

    Layer upon layer until you’ve got this gorgeous 6-layer spiked Mardi Gras masterpiece. All that's left to do now is unmold it!

    Then grab a knife and prepare your lips. Life is about to get wildly delicious!
