  3. Cut firm gelatin into 1/2-inch cubes. Prepare whipped topping according to package directions. In a large bowl, combine whipped topping with lemon, pineapple juice mixture. Fold in cubed gelatin and pour into mold. Chill 5 hours or overnight before serving.

VERY easy and tasted great, although it does take a little time since you have to wait for the jello to set. I think this would probably be easy for kids if you used cool whip in place of the packet of dream whip.

OK! Made exactly as stated but substituted 8oz Cool Whip for the whipped topping to save time. Put into jello mold (sprayed mold lightly with cooking spray first and it slipped right out!). Presentation didn't look anything like broken glass, so the kids were disappointed - they were expecting to "eat glass", but it tasted good. The combination of lemon jello and pineapple juice was excellent! The different colors did start to run together in the binding jello & whip cream after it sat out during dinner, which didn't look too appetizing, but overall it was tasty. I probably won't make this again as the prep involved is too much trouble. Thanks anyway! It looks like others enjoyed it much more than we did!

Everyone loves this, even those who don't usually like Jello.

I made this for a family reunion and everyone was very intrigued with it's wonderful appearance. I have diabetics in the family, so I simply substituted the gelatin for sugar-free gelatins. I also changed some of the flavors, but stuck to the color scheme. This is very easy to make.
