I've seen several of these posted in the past couple week and was wondering what that is exactly? Is it a kind of technique and if so, how do you do it?

Yes, that's the ones I was talking about....I read through that thread but now I'm confused.....on her picture she said it was a Three Milk j-ello......I guess I thought that she used some jello on top of her three milk cake. I'm just a little confused icon_confused.gif

Okay, just went back to her picture again, she said she used three different types of milk to make the jello cake so with those previous instructions, I think I can figure it out.

Good luck Cindy! I still cannot figure her recipe out! She posted it several weeks ago. If you get it figured out let me know! I would love to learn how to do it.

I think I've figured out the recipe from Najiad for the jello. First thing, you grease your mold for the gelatin.

You need 4 cups of milk, one cup to disolve the gelatin (4 packs of Knox unflavored), the other 3 cups you heat and add the 2 cups of sugar to disolve it, but don't let it boil. Just at boiling point remove from heat and add vanilla and mix that in.

Then you add the disolved gelatin to the milk, sugar and vanilla mixture, stir all are disolved completely. Pour in your mold and refrigerate until it is set.

Prepare your drawing by making a gel tracing on waxed paper. When mold is set, unmold it and put it on your cakeboard, and apply the waxed paper tracing.
Then you paint with Wilton (?) colors and brushes.
(remember it is going to be milky white)

If you used a character pan as a mold, I guess you would outline as you would if it were a cake.

This is my interpretation, maybe it will help a little!
