This works! I initially tried to follow some of the suggestions in the comments, but I think the real directions were better. The gelatin needs that 1/4 cup of water and it absolutely needs to be heated to dissolve. In fact, I almost gave up because I mixed up the gelatin in a small amount of cold water and it was just a glue ball. I almost threw it out, then decided to microwave it as directed. I did that and it worked beautifully. No more glops! It took waaay longer than 10 minutes to cool, tho. At least an hour. In fact, do that first so you're not waiting for the gelatin to cool. Also, I made the mistake of frosting the cake right after whipping this up. I needed to have refrigerated the whipped cream to make it sturdy enough to use for cake layers.
