    • 5 (170g) packets jelly crystals, in different colours
    • 24g gelatine powder
    • 2 cups (500ml) water, divided

    1. Make up the five colours of jelly in five different bowls, using only half the water stated on the packets so that the jelly is very firm. Chill until completely set.
    2. Grease a 23cm cake tin, or use a silicone mold.
    3. Cut the jelly into cubes, toss together and tip into the cake tin or mold.
    4. Place 1 cup water in a bowl and add the powdered gelatine. Let sit for a few minutes, then add 1 cup boiling water. Stir until dissolved.
    5. Place the condensed milk in a blender with the cream. Add the gelatine mixture and vanilla. Blend until well combined.
    6. Pour the milk mixture over the jelly cubes in the mold. Chill 4-5 hours or overnight. To unmold, run a knife along the edges of the mold and invert on a serving plate.

    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


    An odd concept for a cake, but the flavour? Oh yes!  -  07 Sep 2016


    Super easy to make, with great results! I made it with four packets of jello rather than five, and used two colours. It turned out great, and my father who loves jello was very impressed! It tasted pretty good as well; regardless of the flavour combinations you use, it will taste fruity. It wasn't very sweet which was a plus, it was a refreshing rather than rich dessert.  -  05 Jun 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
