      You have to wait till cream cheese has chilled a bit before slowly adding the jell on top. Be gentle, use a ladle to slowly pour it in.Jelly must still be hot.

      • hmmm. maybe bc i pour the whole jelly mix into the cream cheese mix without using any spoon or ladle. but after adding the cold water into the hot water, the jelly mix won’t be that hot already i thought? nvm, i will try again.πŸ™‚
