A CAPTIAL artist has come up with a novel way to celebrate this year’s Diamond Jubilee – a Queen-shaped jelly mould.

Lydia Leith featured in the Evening News last year after producing her controversial Royal Sick Bags for the wedding of William and Kate. The Edinburgh Art College graduate went on to sell more than 10,000 of the jokey bags.

Now Lydia, 25, has designed jelly moulds in the shape of the monarch’s head to celebrate this summer’s extravaganza.

Lydia, from the Capital, said: “The royal wedding changed my life and helped me start my business. In my parents’ house they have a vintage Queen’s head hanging on the wall, and I was staring at it one day whilst thinking about what I could do for the Jubilee.

“Earlier that day I had been to a friend’s house and they had served me some jelly. All of a sudden I had the idea to make the Jubilee jelly moulds.

“After lots of research, moulding and carving, my idea was coming to fruition and I am so pleased to say they have been made in the UK. “Jelly is the ultimate party celebration food and will hopefully be a unique centrepiece for street parties.”
