My son requested a jello cake for his birthday. (fancy, huh!) I want to make it ahead of time, and then just frost it shortly before the party. I usually frost with whipped cream or cool whip, but both of those tend to get soggy quickly. (I even tried to stabilize with a tiny bit of gelatine last week. Maybe I need more gelatine)
I am putting a beaker made of rice crispy treats and frosting on top of this and then gelatine bubbles around it. Those should be very quick and easy to place, and I imagine they wont move around much. I will do that right before so they dont melt. Also, planning on having dry ice fog coming out of the "beaker".
Anyway, any thoughts? Dream whip? Try to stabilize the cream? Coolwhip?
