These crafty new confections may look like jello molds, what with their distinctive whipped cream and cherry toppers and blue doily foundations.  But the drippy caramel and chocolate sauce additions announce their true identities (you wouldn't put caramel or chocolate on jello, now would you?) as more upscale mousses.  Not that I've ever seen such mousses in nature (or rather, holding court at big do dessert buffet tables), but then that's the bright side of the felt kitchen, this freedom to create things that are pretty without them having to make any sense :)
