Hey there, fellow dessert enthusiasts! Today, I'm going to share with you a fantastic recipe that will not only satisfy your sweet tooth but also awaken your inner artist. Get ready to dive into the world of jelly cakes! These mesmerizing treats are not only visually stunning but also incredibly delicious. So, let's roll up our sleeves and create a delightful masterpiece together.


  • 4 packs of flavored jelly (assorted colors)
  • 2 cups of boiling water
  • 1 cup of cold water
  • Whipped cream (optional)
  • Fresh fruits for garnish (optional)

Step 1: Preparing the Jelly Layers

First things first, let's prepare the jelly layers that will give our cake its vibrant, rainbow-like appearance. Take your four packs of flavored jelly in assorted colors (use any colors you like!) and empty them into separate bowls.

Step 2: Mixing the Jelly

Now, pour ½ cup of boiling water into each bowl of flavored jelly. Stir it vigorously until the jelly powder completely dissolves. Make sure to follow the instructions on the packaging for the correct water-to-jelly ratio.

Step 3: Adding Cold Water

Next, add ¼ cup of cold water to each bowl and give it another good stir. This step helps to cool down the jelly mixture and ensures a smooth consistency.

Step 4: Layering the Jelly

Now comes the fun part! Take a square or rectangular cake pan and lightly grease it to prevent sticking. Start by pouring one color of jelly into the pan, filling it up to about ¼ inch in depth. Place the pan in the refrigerator and allow the jelly to set for around 20-30 minutes or until firm to the touch.

Step 5: Repeating the Layers

Once the first layer is set, take another color of jelly and pour it gently over the set layer. Repeat this process with all the different colors, allowing each layer to set before adding the next. Keep in mind that you can vary the thickness of each layer based on your preference.

Step 6: Final Layer and Refrigeration

Once you've added all the layers, let the final layer set in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. This step ensures that the jelly cake is fully set and easy to slice.

Step 7: Unmolding and Serving

When the jelly cake is completely set, gently run a knife along the edges of the pan to loosen it. Carefully invert the pan onto a serving platter and give it a light tap if needed to release the cake. VoilĂ ! Your stunning jelly cake is ready to steal the show.

Step 8: Optional Garnishes

For an extra touch of elegance, you can decorate your jelly cake with whipped cream and fresh fruits. Feel free to unleash your creativity and add your personal touch to make it even more visually appealing.
