Gummy Bear Jello Cake – Kids & Grown-Ups Love It So

Jello — you either love it, or you hate it! For many, this wobbly dessert can only mean one thing: pure nostalgia. It reminds them of exciting kids' birthday parties, summer fairs at the kindergarten or simply a dessert grandma used to make. Our recipe today shows how easy it is to magic up a tasty dessert using jello and a couple of bags of gummy bears...

You'll Need

For the yellow cubes:

  • 8 oz yellow gummy bears
  • 3 fl oz water
  • 3 oz plain yogurt

For the red cubes:

  • 8 oz red gummy bears
  • 3 fl oz water
  • 3 oz plain yogurt

For the green cubes:

  • 8 oz green gummy bears
  • 3 fl oz water
  • 3 oz plain yogurt

For the orange cubes:

  • 8 oz orange gummy bears
  • 3 fl oz water
  • 3 oz plain yogurt

For the blue cubes:

  • 8 oz blue gummy bears
  • 3 fl oz water
  • 3 oz plain yogurt

For the brown cubes:

  • 4 oz red gummy bears
  • 4 oz blue gummy bears
  • 3 fl oz water
  • 3 oz plain yogurt

For the brown jello:

  • 7 oz brown cola gummies
  • 9 oz white gummy bears
  • 8 fl oz water

For the base:

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 4 egg whites
  • 3 oz sugar
  • 2 oz flour, sieved

Here's How:

All cubes are prepared the same way:

1. Bring the water to a boil in a pot. Next, add the gummy bears and stir them with a whisk. Leave the mixture to cool and then fold in the yogurt. Add the finished mixture to an ice cube tray. Place the ice cube tray in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight.

2. Once you're done with all the colors in Step #1, you can start making the brown jello. Add the brown cola gummies and white gummy bears to water and bring to a boil. No yogurt is used here. Add the mixture to a measuring jug.

3. For the sponge base, beat the egg whites until stiff with half of the sugar. Next, whip the egg yolks with the other half of the sugar. First, carefully fold the egg whites into the egg yolks before adding the sieved flour. Spread the mixture out evenly on a tray containing baking parchment and bake at 350°F for about 10 minutes. After baking, remove the sponge base from the tray and leave it to cool.

4. Remove all the ice cube trays from the fridge. If you're having a hard time removing the gummy jellos from the molds, briefly place the tray in hot water. This should help ease them out. Cut the gummy jellos into small cubes and mix them together in a bowl.

5. Add the cubes to a loaf pan and pour the brown jello on top.

6. Cut the sponge base to fit the loaf pan and place it on top. Refrigerate the jello cake for at least 4 hours.

To make removing the cake from pan an easier task, simply place it in some hot water first. The increase in temperature helps loosen the jello from the sides, so the cake will easily slide out.
