Jiggly, pink, geometric and scented with rosewater – these jelly diamonds have a hint of the exotic about them, along with a bright 80’s charm!

Comments & Reviews

Do recipes using Jel-it-in such as the Jelly Cupcakes & Jelly Shapes stay firm at room temperature without refrigeration? That is, would they be suitable to take to an outdoor party in Qld (not in direct sun, of course).


Hi Debra, they should be fine for a couple of hours and after that will start to soften and weep slightly. Of course it will depend whether it’s a scorching hot Queensland summer day – try and keep them as cool as possible. Good luck!

I noticed on the queen website it stated ‘jel-it-in’ is not suitable for making marshmallow. what is the reason please? i have succeeded making them using Jel-it-in. Are there any safety concerns about it? thanks


Hi Shirley, thanks for getting in touch. The reason we state Jel-it-In isn’t suitable for making marshmallows is because it must be dissolved in the liquid components of the recipe and heated to boiling point. As soon as the mixture begins to cool, it begins to set, meaning when whipping marshmallows, the mixture cools quickly and clumps rather than making smooth, aerated marshmallow. If you have made successfully made marshmallow using Jel-it-In we would love to try your recipe.
