Carolyn’s Rainbow Ribbon Jell-O Cake

Carolyn made this for Thanksgiving dinner today then sent me the recipe so it’s her recipe now hehehe. It looks lovely 🙂

You need:

  • A 2L Bunt Pan or ring mould


  • 5 packages of different kind of Jell-O
  • 15 tbsp. vanilla ice cream


Dissolve 1 pkg of Jell-O in 1 1/4 cups of boiling water.  Pour 3/4 of the Jell-O into the ring mould. Chill until set but not firm (about 20 minutes) This is your first layer.  Leave the remaining Jell-O out on the counter and once it cools to room temp (about 15 min) mix (whisk) in 3 tbsp. of the ice cream into the Jell-O. Spoon the Jell-O with the ice cream into the mould on top of the first layer. This now creates the second layer.

Chill again now for about an hour.  Dissolve next pkg. of Jell-O in 1 1/4 cups of boiling water once that is mixed take 3/4’s of a cup of the Jell-O and set
aside, let cool (about 10 minutes) so that when you pour it on the 2nd layer it does not dissolve the other Jell-O layers.

Repeat steps 1-5 for the next 4 pkg’s of Jell-O.

Once all the Jell-O is in the ring mould chill overnight.

To unmould, dip mould in warm water for about 10 seconds. Gently pull Jell-O from around edges with moist fingers. Place moistened serving plate on top of mould. Invert mould and plate; holding mould and plate together, shake slightly to loosen. Gently remove mould and centre Jell-O on the plate.
