To make the soda go flat, twist off cap, and let the bottle stand at room temperature overnight.
Martha Stewart Kids, Summer/Fall
Yield Fills a 2 1/2-quart fish or glass bowl
Add to Shopping List
1 two-liter bottle lemon-lime soda, flat
4 1/4-ounce packages unflavored gelatin
2 drops blue food coloring
2 ounces gummy fish
Place 1 cup soda in a large bowl. Sprinkle gelatin evenly over soda, and let stand to soften, about 5 minutes.
Place 2 cups soda in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat
until just before a boil. Add the softened gelatin, stirring to dissolve
the gelatin completely over the heat, about 2 minutes. Remove from
heat. Add the remaining soda and food coloring, and stir to combine.
Pour the liquid into the fish bowl. Using a damp paper towel, carefully
remove any bubbles that have formed on the surface. Transfer to the
refrigerator to chill overnight.
When ready to serve, use a sharp knife to make vertical slits in
the gelatin; insert the fish in a random pattern to make it look as
though they are swimming in the bowl. Keep refrigerated until serving.
Serve within 6 hours.
My kids are obsessed with fish...real or not lol
I found this and they have gone nuts over it.
