Crown Jewel Cake
This colorful Crown Jewel Cake recipe is based on a recipe that originally was found on the back of Jello boxes during the late 1950's. The Crown Jewel Cake also know as the broken glass cake used to be made with cool whip, but this recipe has been replaced with real cream, which makes the recipe much more delicious. This is a great cake baking idea that both the kids and adults will love. Each time you slice a piece of cake, it's like getting a little piece of artwork. To make this cake recipe, you will need a 7 inch round spring-form pan, an 11 by 17-inch jelly roll pan, and a tea towel. The colorful cubes in the cake recipe are made with different flavors of jello. You could also make your vegan or vegetarian cubes using agar and fruit juice, or use quality sourced gelatin with gel food coloring. If using agar, you will want to dissolve properly this seaweed derived gelling agent properly to ensure your recipe sets right.
When it comes to choosing a powdered gelatin you may want to make sure you get it from a good source, preferably grass fed source. You don’t want to be supporting the unethical practices of factory farming if you don't have to, and you also don't want to be eating something that uses drugs or hormones. So getting gelatin that doesn't come from factory farmed animals is important. Unless the gelatin powder that you use specifically says where it was sourced from, and from what kind of animals, then it most likely from the factory farming industry. A good source of grass fed gelatin comes from Great Lakes Gelatin, along with Bernard Jensen. You might not know it, but gelatin can be good for your health. While gelatin is not vegan-friendly, you can get good sources that come from grass-fed animals. Some of the benefits have having gelatin in your diet is that it supports skin, hair and nail growth. Gelatin is also good for the joints and can help speed up joint recovery. It can also help tighten up loose skin after having babies. Gelatin is also known to help improve digestion since it naturally binds to water and helps move food more easily through the digestive track. It may even help to improve cellulite. Gelatin is an excellent source of dietary collagen, which is interesting as collagen is too large to be absorbed through the skin, so using skin creams that contain collagen don't make a whole lot of sense. Gelatin is a great source of protein and can help to build muscle.
