BROKEN GLASS MILO JELLY

When you go to the church, you often see the children very fond of the colorful glass windows. These are what they call “cathedral windows”. This is where the concept of cathedral cakes come from.

Cathedral cakes are jelly-based cakes which are white in color with some colorful jelly cubes submerged in it. The colors used were often blue, orange, and green, which are the usual colors of actual cathedral windows. The main concept used in this cake is that a white jelly is used as the cake base and then jelly cubes of different color/s are submerged in it. With its looks, some people also call these cakes “broken glass” cakes.

Now, cathedral cakes are not limited to the white jelly with colorful cubes in it. People have modified the flavors of the cake but the concept of submerged jelly cubes still remains. I have preparing the traditional cathedral cake in the past. Here is my other version where I used our favorite choco drink to give my cathedral cake some chocolatey goodness.

If you wanna know how to make a simple yet stunning milo broken glass jelly, follow the simple steps below! Happy cooking!

HOW TO COOK BROKEN GLASS MILO JELLY

Milo cathedral jelly might look hard to make but it is actually very easy and straightforward. What we are going to do is to make 2 sets of jelly (the chocolatey and the creamy) which will be put together harmoniously to make our wonderful dessert.

Start by making the chocolate jelly. In this recipe, I used our favorite childhood drink— milo. (You can also use any chocolate powder or cocoa powder). Simply combine the ingredients for the milo jelly (listed below). Mix them first in a pot before adding heat so they mix nicely first and would not form lumps. Jellies are very easy to cook. Once you’ve added the sweetener and the flavor you like, you’re simply going to heat it until it boils. For the milo jelly, this jelly will be the “windows” of our cathedral HAHAHA. So when they got firm, cut them into cubes.

For the creamy jelly, cook it in a similar manner on how you cooked the milo jelly. But it is important to remember that you are not gonna cool and let this jelly set, okay?

This is where the challenge starts. When your molder is ready, we will need to make an “alternating”  layer of milo jelly cubes and the creamy liquid jelly. You should move quick at this stage since the jelly hardens fast. But this hardening is actually beneficial so you can design your milo cathedral jelly accordingly.

If you are curious on what would happen if you did not perform the alternating transferring of the jellies in the molder, then I’ll tell you what will happen (comes from my experience!!). When you pour the creamy jelly at the molder all at once, and then you put the milo jelly cubes all at ones, the milo jelly cubes will just sink and remain at the bottom. There will be no “windows” to the cathedral. There will only be darkness. 🙁

After you are done decorating your dessert, it would be best to chill them first for a few hours. Just don’t put jellies in the freezer because they would be really hard that you wont like it. I sometimes pour some condensed milk on top after I get a slice of the milo cathedral window. Hope you will like it too!!

Directions

  • For the milo jelly:

  • While the cream mixture is still hot, pour around a cup of the mixture on the molder then add some of the milo cubes.
  • Add more cream mixture and jelly cubes until the molder fills up. You need to fill the molder quickly as the jelly hardens fast as it cools down.

  • Unmold the milo cathedral jelly into a serving plate. Slice a piece of this yummy dessert and serve chilled. Yum!
