    Well, the instruction of this recipe is not specific enough to my understanding : (
    pls forgive me for the lack of cooking knowledge.

    I just tried this and made a huge mess of my kitchen. I literally waxed my kitchen floor, trying to carry hot liquids from the pot to the molds and the molds to the fridge.How long are we supposed to wait between layers? I filled most of the molds halfway thinking I’d make a different colored/flavored batch later, but making a rainbow this way would take ages. How long will this take to set in the fridge? Maybe I should have asked these questions before trying it out. It sounded so simple, but I think you need experience to get the timing right, especially when heating the milk and water at the same time and preparing the different colors and flavors… I will practice though!

    Second attempt. This time I filled my molds halfway with half of the liquid, which I added mint syrup to, along with a mint leaf. I left the other half of the liquid in my crockpot on “warm”, and waited 15 min. The mint part was fully set, so I added the second half of the liquid which I flavored with rum. I think next time I’ll up the heat level to “low”, because the jelly was dangerously close to setting by the time I filled the other half of my molds. Which were martini glasses. You won’t catch me again using molds that need to be filled to the top and can easily spill!
