Yum! Don't those look pretty? I've been seeing all sorts of fun popsicle recipes and ideas on Pinterest, so I decided to try to make some rainbow popsicles for the boys.
What's wrong with this picture?
Don't those crooked sticks look awesome?!? I started freezing my red, orange and yellow layers, and got all the way to green before I realized my error. With these popsicle molds there's no way to add additional liquid once you put the stick in (not to mention the fact that the stick was so long that it should have gone in around the orange layer)! So I scrambled around looking for regular popsicle sticks , but all we had left were the colored kind that bleeds and stains your hands. Eeeek! Oh well! I added the green layer, tossed in the crooked sticks, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best.
Of course, the kids liked them anyway - they are still popsicles after all! But they weren't nearly as pretty or rainbow-tastic as the original inspiration. Apparently I need to revisit this idea after I pick up some regular popsicle sticks and Dixie cups ;)
Stunning work! LOL!
This is what I really need:
