Rainbow Jello III w/Instructions by theresahelmer Rainbow Jello III w/Instructions by theresahelmer
Many of you wanted to know how to make this rainbow jello. So i made another one and i am offering up the tips below. Since i am not great at writing up recipe and tips, i shall do my best. please give only constructive feedback & feel free to ask any questions you might have, i will do my best to answer all of your questions. Any negative comments will be hidden. Thank you for your understanding and support.

This jello is with reversed colors (where the red is on the bottom instead)

Here are the important tips for a successful rainbow jello:

:bulletblue: Preparation steps for your jello mold - spray inside of your mold with cooking spray (i used Pam Cooking Spray), make sure all surface areas are covered thoroughly. Wipe down the mold with paper towel. Add water into mold, discard water. Now you should see the area that was not covered by your cooking spray (same idea as one would use flour to cover the surface area when making cakes). Lightly spray inside of your mold again. Now the mold is ready to be filled. If you do follow these steps, you will never suffer from a "broken" jello again.

If you do not have a "proper" mold, any container will do. By using my tips, i have not failed once when removing the jello from any containers i used.

:bulletblue: Myth on unmold - Dip the vessel's bottom in hot water for 15 to 20 seconds to loosen. Dip again if necessary. DON'T USE THIS METHOD. Jello does not play well when hot water at any stages.

:bulletblue: Unflavored gelatin plays an important role here. Be sure to add 1/2 envelope to each colors.

:bulletblue: When mix gelatin, i find the most useful tool is a whisk. Not spoon, nor fork.

:bulletblue: It isn't necessary to add the white layers you see here. I like it because of the aesthetic value only.

:bulletblue: If you do like the white layers - you will need a 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk. For this jello, i used 1/3 can then add 1 envelope of unflavored gelatin then mix well in hot water.

:bulletblue: Using a damp paper towel, carefully remove any bubbles that have formed on the sides/surface.

:bulletblue: If i miss anything, feel free to ask me! If you still need additional assistance. You can also watch these videos on the subject - www.youtube.com/watch?v=XigYcl…, www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8zDQJ…

This is just amazing!! Visually stunning, great layers work, texture and shapes, and how you balanced the top with the bottom red by adding cherries~!

It's so pretty as usual :D Do you let each layer set completely before you add the next layer to it?

Let me ask you a question, if you use unflavored gelo, it is just good looking but not good tasting? =O

That's beautiful. Too bad I don't eat gelatinous food. If you could do a similar thing, but with flan or egg pudding, that would be hilarious.
