Renee's 7th Birthday - Cinderella



































Renee turned seven on March 23rd and this year her theme for her party was Princess and she requested Cinderella. Instead of the usual birthday cake, i made her Cinderella from konnyaku or rather, the skirt only was from konnyaku. The top skirt was made from a jelly mould and the bottom skirt was a bundt cake pan.



Ingredients:

3 pkts x 10 gm konnyaku jelly powder
630 gm sugar
2,850 ml water
Condensed milk
Blue food coloring

Method:
Mix the konnyaku jelly powder and sugar.
Bring the water to the boil and slowing add in the jelly powder and sugar mixture. Stirring until all the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is clear.
Separate mixture into 3 portions, color one portion light blue, dark blue and white which has condensed milk added.
Make the skirts by layering the bundt pan and jelly mould with alternate colors.
Put in the fridge to set.
When chilled, remove from moulds and assemble.
Top with a Cinderella doll.
Note:
Ensure layers are well set before adding the next layer.
Ensure the mixture for the layers are alway hot so that it can adhere to the set layer.

Thanks for the tip on making the layers stick together. I always had a hard time layering gelatin desserts.
