Fake Jell-O breasts are a party snack that are sure to elicit giggles all around. Making a fake Jell-O breast is as easy as making any other Jell-O confections--as long as you have the right mould. For authenticity, head to your local costume shop and pick up a pair of fake plastic breasts. They're thin, rigid and hollow on the inside--perfect for the job. They're also easy to find online if your local costume shop refuses to carry them.

Fill the breast mould with water one cup at a time. Record how many cups it took to fill it. This will determine how much peach Jell-O you need to buy. For each 1.5 cups of water, buy one 85.1gr./3oz. package of peach Jell-O.

Wash the interior and exterior of the fake plastic breasts with soap, water and a sponge. Rinse and rub the interior of the mould with your fingertips. When you hear a squeaky sound as you rub it means all of the soap residue is gone. Let the mould air dry.

Coat the interior of the breast mould with a thin film of vegetable oil. Spray oil is easy to apply. If you rup it on with a paper towel, be sure to wipe off any excess so that you are just left with a thin sheen.

Pour the peach Jell-O powder into a large bowl.

Pour one cup of boiling water per 85.1gr./3 oz. package of Jell-O into the bowl. Stir until the Jell-O is completely dissolved.

Pour the contents of a one 255gr./9oz. can of evaporated skimmed milk into the molten Jell-O for every 2 cups of boiling water you added. Stir well.

Place the breast mould in a plastic bin filled with packing peanuts (or crumpled newspaper or sand--anything with a stabilising effect) so that it is levelled and stable.

Pour the Jell-O into the breast mould.

Place the breast mould into the refrigerator. It will take at least 3 hours for the Jell-O to set.

Remove the breast mould of Jell-O from the bin and place it on the table. Fill the bin with warm water and dip the exterior of the breast mould in the warm water to loosen the Jell-O.

Flip the breast mould over (Jell-O side down) on a serving tray. The Jell-O breasts will pop right out.
