You have the names, but not the fish? Or. . . wait - did you mean the buffalo-heads? Oh dear, I'm so baffled. I think I need more coffee. . . either way, you get one of these:

HUZZAH FOR NAMES!!!

Oh NO!!! Is that. . . okay? I mean - it'll get eaten just the same? Or do you need to scratch the recipe and start over. I guess now we know why the starch is used on every other type of fishy food out there! Sheeeeeeeesh!

I don't think I blended well enough/used enough gelatin.
Oh well, it seems like one of those things people don't get right the first time round. I'm sure they'll eat it.
I'll try baby food next time. I will survive the looks that a 17 year old buying baby food will receive. xD

If it helps, I already have the names matched with faces that I want them to look like. Hopefully they stick around till the weekend!

I hope so TOO!!!

I am really curious about this - Is what you're doing, basically, making Jello with baby food and fish vitamins? That SOUNDS cool! What types of foods are you putting in?

Yay for names!! I do hope you get the ones you want for these guys.

If it fell apart you didn't get enough gelatine in there. Happened to my first batch, too. I didn't mix it well enough and there wasn't enough gel around the edges. Lessons learned!

Well it's kinda like unflavored gelatine + vitamins + baby food + some kinda fish. It's completely edible for humans, although I can't imagine it would taste too good. :P

The looks of a 23 year old buying baby food weren't too much better. I was asked whether it was a boy or a girl. I just said it was for my sister's kid.
