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

Inner Foam:

- 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! :)
