Lime Ricky Jello Cups

1 package (3 ounces) grape gelatin
2 cups boiling water,divided
2-1/2 cups cold water, divided
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup heavy whipping cream
6 tablespoons sugar
2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package (3 ounces) lime gelatin

1.In a bowl, dissolve the lime gelatin in 1 cup boiling water; stir in 1 cup cold water. Pour into a 3-qt. serving bowl or divide between clear plastic cups (I used cups)  Refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm.
2.Meanwhile, in a saucepan, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water; let stand for 1 minute.Then mix in the cream and sugar; cook and stir over low heat until gelatin and sugar are completely dissolved. Allow to cool to room temperature. Whisk in sour cream and vanilla. Spoon over the set grape layer. Refrigerate until firm, again for about 1 -1 1/2 hours.
3.Once the white layer is firm, dissolve grape gelatin in a bowl with remaining 1 cup boiling  water; stir in remaining 1 cup cold water. Pour over a spoon over cream layer. Pouring the gelatin over a spoon prevents making a hole into the white layer as you pour.
4.Chill until set for about 1 more hour. Garnish with whipped cream and lime if desired.

* I made this for my sons birthday and thought that it turned out great the flavors mixed well together and he loved it. I would make this again in just a normal bowl unless I needed individual servings again :)
I give it a 4 1/2
