Orange Creamsicle Delight

Simple. Fun. Show-stopper. These are the words I have to describe today’s recipe. You’ll be delighted at how simple this recipe is and how fun and entertaining it will be for your guests as well. This is such a playful presentation making your next event one to remember. This magical thing takes place when the Jell-O is setting up in the fridge… it creates a layered effect and gives a little nod to the bubbly that you’d normally see in these glasses from real champagne. Your guests will feel fancy yet playful with the feel of this dessert.

Mirror-Top Dessert Stand

Another nod to champagne is reflected in the finish of our cake stand. The beautiful elegance and detail of the mirror-top sets this piece apart from your average single-tier dessert stand. With 12 inches in diameter, our mirror-top cake stand in champagne is perfect or a wedding, event, party, baby shower, Quinceanera, and more. 

Orange Creamsicle Delight

Prep Time: 20 minutes + 2 hours for chill time
Serves 8

Ingredients

  • 3 cups heavy cream, divided
  • 1 6-ounce box orange flavored Jell-O (or 2 3-ounce boxes of orange Jell-O)
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • ½ cup cold water
  • 8 champagne glasses
  • Orange slices and mint leaves for garnish

Directions

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer or with a hand mixer, beat whipping cream until soft peaks form. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add Jell-O powder and boiling water. Stir until powder is completely dissolved. Add cold water. 
  3. Add 2 cups of whipped cream to the Jell-O mixture and stir until whipped cream has dissolved.
  4. Pour evenly into 8 champagne glasses and place in the refrigerator until set; about 2 hours. As the Jell-O sets it will separate into two layers.
  5. Right before serving, pipe or spoon a dollop of the remaining whipped cream on top of the Jell-O in each glass. Place an orange slice on the rim of each glass and add a sprig of mint for color.

Cheers!
