This showstopper cake is as delicious to eat as it is pretty to look at. Cubes of jelly are suspended in a creamy jelly and set in a mould, creating a stained glass effect. Use ready-made jelly pots to save some time.
If you don't have powdered gelatine to hand, you can use leaf gelatine. Simply follow the instructions on the packet and use the number of leaves needed to set 1100ml of liquid. Depending on the type of leaf gelatine you have, you will need somewhere around 12 leaves. Follow the packet instructions to dissolve the gelatine leaves before adding to the milk and cream mixture.
It's so easy to made, u should use powder leaf gelatine.. That would set perfectly in just a few hours - 04 Dec 2015
Disaster! Took me ages to make too! The condensed milk/gelatine/cream/vanilla mixture did not set after a night in the fridge. I ended up putting it in the freezer but threw the resulting mess away. The only things I think could possibly have affected the set was that my fridge was very full, I used vegetarian gelatine and I used a big silicone castle shaped mould..?? - 29 Jul 2015
Made this as a desert for Christmas, with a different take on jelly - mainly for the kids. Made with 6 Aeroplane jelly flavours for the colour. Really pleased with the result. The sixth colour left some of the cream mix over, which I set separately. Very tasty, colourful and refreshing. - 21 Dec 2017 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
