This dessert was okay...super easy to make, but I didnt care for the texture. Probably wont be making this one again, to be honest.

I make this without the bananas, and combine the strawberries in with the boiling water and then pour it all over top of the angel food cake. Good use of frozen strawberries!

This recipe was gobbled up quickly by my co-workers. I thought the jello would almost surround the cake and fruit, but the angel food soaked up most of it. It held together nicely, but I persona...

I would say I didn't care for this dish. Created a weird taste/texture combination. I should have cut all the 'crust' off the cake it may have helped. Got so-so comments at the event I made ...

Just like Grandma use to make! Glad I tried it despite previous review.

The combination of gelatin and angel food cake created an odd texture. I would have preferred just the angel food cake, fruit and the whipped topping.

Yummy!!! I followed the recipe, next time I will add more bananas. Otherwise...Delicious!!!
