Stained Glass Cake
From Cook's Country
A 1950s advertisement for Jell-O made Stained Glass Cake famous. Also known as Crown Jewel Cake or Broken Glass Cake, this easy, child-friendly icebox cake looks just as pretty today as it did then. For a simple graham cracker crust, we combined crushed crumbs with a little butter and sugar to bind them, and then used a measuring cup or flat-bottomed glass to pack the crumbs into the springform pan. We prepared the gelatin with pineapple juice for a bright-flavored, transparent gelatin that wouldn’t compete with the colored Jell-O cubes in the filling.
