How to cook Cathedral Windows

Cathedral Windows Recipe is a Christmas dessert with different colored jello embedded in the creamy mold.  The name obviously derive from the appearance of the dessert,  but some also call this Stained Glass dessert.  This Filipino dessert is made famous by Goldilocks Bakeshop in the Philippines.

We used the Ferna brand Gelatin because the other brands that we tried was a failure, the creamy mold could not hold the embedded jello’s or you can use the Knox brand but a little more expensive.

Cathedral Windows Recipes

Flavored Gelatin:

  • Dissolve each pack of Ferna Flavored Gelatin Powder in 1 cup boiling water (If using Knox brand Gelatin just following the packets directions)
  • Add 1 cup tap water to each flavored gelatin. Stir.
  • Pour on separate containers. Chill flavored gelatin to set preferably overnight.
  • When the flavored Gelatin is set cut into small cubes then combine all the colored Gelatin in a big bowl, toss together all the cubes and refrigerate to set.

Base Gelatin:

  • In a bowl, whisk together egg yolks, kalamansi or lemon juice and sugar until they appear lemon yellow in color.
  • In another bowl, dissolve the unflavored gelatin in 1/2 cup water. Add this into the egg yolk mixture while continuously beating with the whisk. When well blended, pour into a sauce pan and cook over low flame let stand for at least 5 minutes until it thickens and coats the spoon. Set aside.
  • Beat the whipped cream. Pour the heated gelatin-egg mixture (while still hot) into the whipping cream and continue beating.
  • Cool before using.


  • Pour a small amount of the gelatin on a glass dish enough to cover the dish’s bottom.
  • Randomly drop the cubed gelatin on the bottom of the glass dish so as to create a multicolored design on the finished product.
  • Pour the base gelatin on the dish to cover the flavored gelatin.
  • Chill gelatin to set.
  • To server invert Cathedral Windows mold onto a plate.  Slice and serve!

    I’ve been trying every cassava recipe, but when I tried the Cassava recipe you posted it was perfect! I couldn’t imagine how easy it was! Before it took me almost a day to do it. I already copied your recipe into my personal cook book.

    Thank you very much!

    I will try your Cathedral recipe this time.
