Looking for an easy spring dessert? These Pastel Rainbow Gelatin Cups are simple, kid-friendly, and so beautiful! Serve them plain, or top them with whipped cream and sprinkles!
I made these in individual ½-cup glasses, but you can also make it into a slice-and-serve dessert by using a baking pan or cake pan. You can use a 9x-13 pan (which will produce thin layers), a 9x9 pan (thicker layers), or an 8-10 cup bundt pan. Once the gelatin layers are completely set, slice the dessert into small squares or pieces, and serve!
For the most part, I used standard gelatin colors/flavors, but for the pink layer, I found that the typical strawberry and raspberry flavors produced a very bright pink that wasn’t as pastel as I wanted it to be. So for the pink, I used a “natural” strawberry lemonade gelatin, made with natural coloring, and the resulting gelatin was much lighter in color.
