  2. Once mixture becomes hot, sprinkle gelatin over the top

  3. Continue stirring over low heat until mixture begins to thicken, then remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature before spreading between cake layers, or using as donut filling. Mixture will continue to thicken as it cools.
