Available in a range of food inspired colours from pistachio to burgundy wine and blood orange, these jiggly icons of spirituality are sure to awe and delight your next dinner guests. And they’ll likely charm their palates too thanks to such suggested recipes for filling it’s quivering limbs like lemon, coffee and cinnamon layered pudding to mango coconut parfait and vanilla panna cotta.
