Fabulous illustrations! The expressions of the king, queen and... page (?) crack me up. ^_^

Wow! The colors are wonderful. And now I can't stop thinking about royal jelly.

Ha! When I downloaded the pic, I named the file RoyalJello.jpg. Now I realize what was subconsciously in my brain.

The queen looks pleased-"What curious and quaint custom of the people is this, my good man?"

I don't think either the king or the page are all too sure about it, though. o.O

Beautiful art! :D

Making gelatin used to be such a pain in the ass, that only wealthy people would eat it. So the first ad isn't far off, I suppose.

And it's very pretty. So: YES

Parrish was known as a colorist. One of his most popular paintings was Daybreak, a classical fantasy of pastel blossoms and rosy dawn. My great aunt and uncle had the print in their living room for years. He was also known for portraying fairy tale themes, such as his mural for the King Cole Bar at the St. Regis Hotel in New York.

I'm blown away by Maxfield Parrish's art. It's like a stained-glass window. Which I suppose one could make with jello. Hmmm.....

I wonder if there was ever tea-flavored Jell-O.

Maybe you could make unflavored (or lemon) gelatin using tea instead of water? *ponders* Ooooh, would it work for coffee? Coffee-flavored gelatin could be cool.

You can make a nice kind of "stone soup" dessert with coffee, milk, and sugar in plain gelatin. You have to oversweeten compared to what you'd want in a cup of coffee, but it is quick and cheap when you don't want to go to the store.

I have made gelatin of jasmine green tea sweetened with honey. I cubed it up in a salad with lychees and honeydew melon. Very refreshing.

Yes! I was hoping someone would post these.

One of my favorite artists.

I really liked the 'Polly' ad but I have to admit that the royal HANDS in this one are freaking me out. Montgomery Burns doesn't have hands so creepy.

Still, YES for the fabulous color and scrollwork.
