“Most stained glass (or broken glass) cakes call for pineapple juice. I had none the other day, so I just used milk jello and friends loved it because with some cream i put in, the white part tasted like panna cotta. It looked gorgeous on a bed of white cream. I served it with some chocolate sauce and fruits.”
