|WHIPPED CREAM "CLOUDS":|
|1/2 pt||heavy whipping cream|
|1/2 tsp||pure vanilla extract|
|BLUE JELL-O "SKY":|
|1 lg box||berry blue jell-o|
|1 c||boiling water|
|1/2 c||water, ice cold|

It’s really neat to see the depth of the cream in the jello, like puffy clouds!
Each jar might be a little bit too much for one serving, they might be cute in even smaller jars, but there’s plenty to share!
In stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment, add whipping cream; whip on low for one minute, then high until it starts to thicken, then add sugar & vanilla; beat it until it was very stiff. When ready, put it in the fridge while preparing the jello.
In large bowl, add boiling water over blue jello, mix until dissolved. Add ice water & ice cubes & stir. After about 5 minutes, it will start to thicken. Put the bowl in the fridge for about 20 minutes. When it is firm enough to still be a little liquidy but tight enough to hold a little shape, it’s ready.
Cut orange in slices, peel slices.
Using a parfait glass, fishbowl or mason jar, pour a layer of jello in bottom. Add a blop of whipped cream & push it against the glass. If it doesn’t go where you want, just wipe it off the glass & try some more. Blop, blop, blop, then add more jello. Then more clouds & don't forget to put that sunshine in there somewhere (against the glass too). Really, it’s almost TOO easy. Refrigerate at least 3 - 4 hours or until firm.
