    After I made this for my family I started to see them slowly drift away as if were on a sea made of jello. My wife left me, my kids filed restraining orders. I didn't even know kids could do that!!! Only reason I'm giving this five stars is because I thought the fish looked good next to the grapes, and the china I served it on was expensive. Anyways highly recommend this dish is you are in bad terms with your family and your car doesn't work.

    I made this for Easter for the kids. It was the worst tasting dessert I have ever made. The kids took 1 bite and threw it away. Looked great in the beginning but colors ran and flavors all mixed together
