This recipe is very good and correct. If you, as other reviewers, can not make this, try something simpler first, like boiling water.

This was luscious. I doubled it (except the gelatin; I left that the same) and used it to layer and top a yellow cake with sliced strawberries. The gelatin kept the cream from going weepy, and was stiff enough for a nice thick layer of strawberries and cream in the middle of my cake.

This recipe didn't make very much at all. It also does not smooth out on the cake,
