Hi i'm in Oz and I can't seem to find strawberry flavoured gelatin that i read is one of the ingredients in strawberry lemonade cake i want to try because i don't think they make it over here.
Is there another substitute i can put in it's place? Could i just use Strawberry jelly crystals ( or to alot of you guys would be strawberry jello crystals), or is it really important that it's gelatin?
Strawberry flavored gelatin is Jello (one major U.S. brand, the other being Royal). Any of the flavored gelatins would be Jello or Royal (gelatin, with flavoring and sugar).
Plain gelatin is, well, plain gelatin - no flavoring, no sugar.
Does that answer your question?
ohhhhhh so they are just jello crystals! right ok thank-u Jan I just have never heard them being refered to them as flavoured gelatin so i got confused.
Thanks for clearing that up for me.....i start very confusing posts lol
Exactly - Jello crystals!
(Who knew English speaking countries could have such language usage differences.) But it was fun sorting it out.
Good luck on your summertime cake, while the snow is flying here....
whoops i wrote above i have heard them being called that...i meant have never heard them being called that
sigh.....i type too fast for my own good lol
Thanks again Jan
Thank you Jan and Elise for asking and answering that question - it came up in a Google search when I was trying to figure out the same thing! I bought an Amish cookbook on a recent holiday to the US, and was surprised to find how many processed ingredients are in it - much more do than my regular cookbooks. At least we have jelly crystals (flavored gelatin/Jello crystals) here. Now where an I going to get frozen whipped topping?
Cake Decorating Solutions (formerly Bakery Sugarcraft Retail) in Sydney stocks "Flavour Right Whip N Ice". It appears to be an equivalent to "frozen whipped topping" ..
