Have you ever heard of a stained glass or broken glass cake? Neither have I. Doesn’t sound too appetizing (or safe), does it? I was intrigued by the name, though, so I decided to see what this was all about, and I am sooo glad I did! Once you cut into the cake, the jello cubes really do resemble colored pieces of glass, and it actually looks so much more tempting than it sounds!
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 ½ cups Graham cracker crumbs (or any other type of biscuit or cookie)
- ¼ cup melted butter
- 1 cup pineapple juice (or another flavor if you’re not a pineapple fan)
- 1 ½ cups whipping cream
- ¼ cup cold water
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon gelatin powder
- 6 different kinds of jello (or fewer, if you wish)
Since the jello is the real star of the show here you need make sure that it sets properly, so it’s probably best that you make these the day before. Since you want the jello to be a bit firmer than usual, don’t follow the directions on the box – mix the powder with one cup of boiling water only. When it comes to the crust you can decide whether you want a crunchy crust or a softer and lighter crust; for the former, bake it in the oven for about 10 to 13 minutes at 350°F (roughly 175°C), for the latter, just leave it as is.
The filling part is easy to make: combine the pineapple juice and gelatin, whip up the cream and vanilla essence, cool down the juice with cold water and then slowly add it to the cream while whipping slowly. Then you just need to cube your jello, pour it into the mixture, pour that all onto the base and then let it set in the fridge for a minimum of four to six hours.
Then serve and impress the hell out of your guests!
