saw several ideas on here to making a ice chest cake and using plain or clear jello for the ice....can you buy clear jello in a regular store if so what flavor or how do you make clear jello...i want to use this idea for a cake like in the next week or so so if anyone can let me know how to do this or what to get to do this i would really appreciate it...thanks so much
buy the "gelatin" that comes in the orange and white box, I think it is. It is with the jello's and/or near the canning stuff I think... It comes in a small box with 2 or 4 small packages in them.
You need to buy plain gelatin not "Jello", you will find it in the same area as Jello is sold.
Try the unflavored Knox gelatin.
thanks soooo much for all the responses and help on this question, i really appreciate it alot...thanks again...=)
try unflavored Knox gelatin and put a bit of blue to make it look like water. be careful because i hear that the cubes can melt. Use less water than called for to make it sturdy. I would go the isomalt route and just break it up in little shards or rock candy like this ccer
Using jello on a fondant covered cake made my fondant melt, perhaps the unflavoured Gelatin would be better than jello
