1 1/2 cups
1 pkg. (8 serving size)
JELL-O Brand Gelatin, any red flavor
1 (12 ounce) package
pound cake, cut into 10 slices
1 1/3 cups
1 (8 ounce) tub
COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
Great recipe..I agree you cant go wrong with Jello & cool whip! My only change to this cake is to sometimes use cake! I use any kind of white, lemon, or even pound cake. You can 'frost' the top with cool whip then add the berries or as I do, making the cake into 2 layers, putting a down 1 cake layer, adding thin layer of cool whip then berries, then the 2nd cake layer; this time arranging the berries over the cool whip as the USA flag :-)
Made this for a 4th of July BBQ. Looked great, but tasted just OK. Nothing spectacular and the pound cake seemed to dry out. Next year will look for a different patriotic dessert.
OH MY GOODNESS!!! I made this recipe when Cool Whip came out with it when I was a little girl, with my Mother's assistance, of course. This is very simple and tasty. Great for kids to make with grown-up help.
I made a french vanilla cake with fresh whipped creme and decorated it like this. Great idea and perfect for memorial day.
Since we were having a July 4th party this year, I decided to try this, and it was great - everyone at the party loved it, and most had seconds. Personally, I wasn't sure about the jello mixing with the cake (I thought it made the pound cake too mushy, but no one else seemed to mind), so next time I may leave out the cake, or I'll let the jello harden more before I layer it in (or maybe mix the jello with some cool whip and layer that). Overall, a big hit, and very festive and pretty - will make again!
My workplace had a Memorial Day lunch yesterday and we all contributed a dish...this was what I chose to make and bring. I did use an extra deep 9x13 pan which required more jello. (I used an additional 4 serving sized box). I used sugar free jello, and extra creamy Cool Whip. I GOT RAVE REVIEWS and more than one request for the recipe!
This was awesome...the kids loved it (jello + cool whip...duh) Great test for upcoming patriotic holidays!
Very simple, fun, & festive! I brought this cake to a Labor Day party & it was a huge hit... there was almost none left. I did use the sliced pound cake but next time I'd like to try cutting out some of the unneccessary calories (using a white cake mix - though that wouldn't save any time -, Sugar Free Jello, and Light Cool Whip).
