How to Make a "Completely Edible Elephant Toothpaste Dessert w/ Eruption :)"
Updated: Jan 7, 2020
Here are the step-by-step instructions so that you can make a "Completely Edible Elephant Toothpaste Dessert w/ Eruption" yourself! :) This edible art/dessert was inspired by the latest viral "World Record Elephant Toothpaste" video. This is the result of my experiments & design processes noted in a previous post.
Ingredients/Supplies for 1-2 Elephant Toothpaste Desserts:
- Jell-O No-bake cheesecake (1/2 of the filling box)
- 2 Knox gelatin powder packet (or equivalent amount of gelatin)
- Milk (3/4 cup) -- making the No-Bake cheesecake at 1/2 recipe
- Blue food coloring
- 3 egg whites
- Blue food coloring
or you can just use whipped cream from a container & color it blue. :)
- Cooking spray
Equipment: Tall Skinny Glass, Spoon (to carve out your cup), Electric Mixer/whisk
1.) Bloom 2 packets of gelatin powder in 3/4 cup of milk -- just let it sit at room temp for 5 min.
2.) In the meantime, spray your tall skinny glass with cooking spray on the inside.
3.) Pour 1/2 of No-Bake cheesecake filling mix into a mixing bowl.
4.) After milk+gelatin has bloomed, add it to bowl with no-bake cheesecake filling mix and a little blue food coloring.
5.) Mix all together for 2 minutes.
6.) Pour the cheesecake+gelatin mixture into the glass and let it set in the fridge for at least ~1 hour or overnight or until solid.
7.) Get your eggs out and separate out the egg whites. Leave them out for 45 min. or until ~15 min. before you are going to take out your cheesecake+gelatin cups.
8.) Mix your egg whites + some blue food coloring with a mixer/whisk until you get a foam.
-- It may take ~10 min. or more? But you can stop whenever you get your desired foaminess. :)
9.) After your cheesecake+gelatin sets, take it out and scoop out the middle with a spoon to form a cup.
10.) Add your blue foam to the cheesecake+gelatin cup.
11.) Squeeze and see your eruption (video)! And you can eat it if you want -- there is a small risk of salmonella I suppose.
Give it a try! We are good at this! :)
