What do you get when you combine RAD Mom, Sandy Chang, bright colors and fun shapes? Some seriously delicious Layered Jello, of course! While Sandy (of Sandy a la Mode) usually reserves this for the holidays, we took it and made it warm weather ready with our favorite colors and cookie cutters. My first bite of this layered treat instantly brought back childhood memories, making me feel super nostalgic. Zelda was fascinated feeling this gelatinous texture for the first time and she wasn’t quite sure what to make of it!
