The recipe has two parts; the colored gelatin cubes and the cream gelatin base.
- The brand of gelatin (Pamana) I use is 3.1 ounces in weight and calls for 410 ml of water (14 ounces). I decrease the water to 12 ounces for the colored gelatin to yield a firmer texture. Different gelatin brands have different liquid requirements; please check your package directions.
- To enhance the flavor of the colored gelatin, you can substitute coconut or fruit juice for the water. However, I don’t recommend adding food coloring as they might bleed into the white gelatin base.
- The brand I use is already sweetened. Again, please check the package you’re using as you may have to add sugar to taste.
- Please do not add fruit juices to the milk gelatin as the acids might curdle the all-purpose cream.
- For even distribution, allow the cream gelatin to slightly thicken before adding the colored cubes. The cream-gelatin base will thicken fast when the all-purpose cream and condensed milk are added so drop the cubes quickly.
- Allow the gelatin to cool before covering with plastic film and refrigerating as the steam will create water puddles on top.
- Lightly grease the inside of the mold to make releasing the set gelatin easier. You can also use silicone molds if you have any.
