Hi Sam, you are right. It’s in a cup. I apologize for the really late reply. I do hope that you enjoyed your dessert. Thanks for visiting my blog!

I suggest to cut the amount of gelatin powder to about a half. I tried the recipe above but I found the outcome a little hard and stiff. I tried again using lowered amount of gelatin powder and the product had a better consistency.

TY :*

Yes, it is sweet–particularly the white layer because of the condensed milk component to it. 🙂 Thanks for visiting the site!
