1) Buy Jello packets
2) Make Jello
3) Call it cake

This.

Agar powder, no flour.

It's jello, not a cake

Back in my childhood, they called it a Jell-O mold, and it was the most dreaded item on the potluck table.

I did, however, once make a Jell-O pride flag for pride week celebrations. That was sort of... Well, I won't say popular, but not dreaded. This kind of looks like that, only with agar instead of gelatine and with less flavor.

Just chop up jello, pour milk on it, and get on with your life.

Yet another "hey, we made Jell-O into something else!" recipe.

Remember when it was a "transparent lemon pie?"

The thing is, Jell-O's a fun dessert, and it stands on its own - a bit of flavored gelatin's great.

It's this blatant marketing bullshiat, meant to appeal to the type of "foodie" who wants something to post to Instagram or Snapchat by making a "clear pie" or a "prism cake" instead of what the fark it most obviously is, a Jell-O mold, that makes this so friggin' irritating to me.

And I don't care if it came from apples, seaweed, or horse hooves - it's gonna be "Jell-O" whether it's congealed pectin, congealed agar, or congealed gelatin.

No - I'm a fan of all of them. That's what pisses me off about this stupidity. A proper terrine is a thing of beauty, and yummy as hell. Gelatin & agar desserts are both fun & healthy.

No, what pisses me off about this is the whole "oooh, look, isn't this novel? Don'tcha wanna make it just to take pictures of it?" bullshiat, compounded by the "it's not Jell-O - it's a 'pie' or a 'cake'" disingenuity because no one wants to take a gelatin or agar dessert on its own merits. After all, '50s moms make those - that's not cool, or trendy, or Instagram-worthy, right?

Fark that. And get off my damned lawn.

My SIL had never heard of aspic, despite being a quasi-foodie.  So me and a mutual friend spend the rest of the night looking up & showing old recipes/dishes like that.  That one of yours was our proof these dishes really existed, coming from a magazine.  But for generally worst we couldn't decided between the hot dog & hard boiled eggs, or the mixed fruit & shrimp.
