Instructions Checklist
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together flavored gelatin with boiling water and stir until dissolved. Stir in cold water and frozen strawberries. Chill until slightly thickened to the consistency of egg whites. If adding lots of frozen strawberries, it may reach this stage while stirring.

  • Cut cake into cubes, or just rip it into bite size chunks and trim off the dark brown edges. Gently fold in frozen whipped topping and cake into the strawberry mixture. Chill until set. Decorate top with any extra topping and strawberries.

Great for Valentines Day! The recipe is alot quicker if you use a ready made angel food cake. I let it chill in a 13 x 9 pan and garnish it with sliced strawberries. It slices easily, so next time, I might use large cookie cutters in the shape of hearts to serve. It's really good -- everyone loved it. Read More

I must have done something wrong with this. The angel food cake turned into mush even though I thought I had waited long enough to mix it in. Two different people said it looked like pink brains. Taste was ok but the consistency with the mushed cake was not appealing. Read More

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! This is exactly the recipe my mother used to make when I was a kid. The entire extended family made her bring it for every gathering. But unfortunately she lost the recipe. I showed her this one and it's the same! I am so thrilled. Not only is a piece of my youthful holiday memories restored but I can now make this fabulous dessert. Thanks Matthew! Read More

I used fresh strawberries instead of frozen and used an angel food cake already made from the bakery. This dessert was fantastic! Make sure you let the jello combo gel up fairly well so you don't end up with mushy angel food cake. Will make this again in the summer as it is light and fluffy. Loved it! Read More
