You are a goddamn genius. This is amazing.
What mold did you use? I need round jello shots!

More specifically, The mold in the top photo is some sort of plastic candy mold in the "bon bon" category-for small, elegant chocolates. In the second photo, the round ones with the flat top are made with plastic jello shot cups, but the edges were softened with warm water. The candy mold was second hand, so I'm not sure what it's called or where it was from- But they are usually $2-3 online. I have a ton I ordered from Candy Mold Central, but unfortunately they closed.
How do you make the bubble gum syrup???thanks!=P
I have three questions. 1)You say one part bubble gum vodka and one part bubble gum syrup.. how much would that be in like cups? Do you mean one cup two cups..or however much you need? 2) Do just mix all the ingredients together and just stir? or do need to heat the gelatin? 3)Where do you find bubble gum syrup? or do make it?
I have the same questions... but it appears the answers are yet to come...
Oh! so sorry about the delay! Answers to Anonymous's questions:1) One part vodka, one part syrup:When you buy your gelatin, it will tell you how much to use to gel either one cup or two cups of gelatin at a time. So if you are gelling one cup, use a half cup of vodka and a half cup of syrup.2) I mix the granulated gelatin with the syrup, and then heat that up until it's dissolved. Then I add the vodka. Moe does it the other way, she adds the gelatin to the vodka, then she lets it absorb/saturate, and adds the hot syrup to the vodka/gelatin mixture.3) That specific syrup we used for this shot was made by heating up bubble gum flavored jelly bellys with water and then straining it. I'm sure you can find bubble gum syrup or flavoring elsewhere. You might stumble upon bubble gum soda, or bubble gum sno cone syrup. We haven't had good luck with flavorings meant for hard candy, but I know they do make bubble gum extracts.
Ok I confused can we get step by step instructions and what is Knox
i second this question. what is knox?
Knox is a brand of unflavored gelatin.
Three Olives makes a bubble gum vodka that works almost as good as infusing it yourself. I tried it and it ended up wonderfully, but it doesn't give the color. I'll stick with your idea unless I get too lazy. :)
Use a smidge of pink food paste for color. Shouldn't affect the process
