Tips

  • Tip for Kids: Make mini desserts using liqueur glasses or fun-colored small dishes. Sprinkle some mini chocolate chips on top of the strawberries.
  • Variation: Scrape the seeds of 1/4 vanilla bean into the cream mixture and add pod instead of extract. Heat as directed and discard the pod before mixing with gelatin. Using a mini chopper, process the sugar for the topping with a pinch of dried lavender flowers, then mash with strawberries.
