  • Break cake up into small bite-sized pieces.

  • Drain the crushed pineapple, reserve the syrup. You should have 1 cup of syrup if not add enough water to make 1 cup.

  • Dissolve the gelatin in the 4 tablespoons of cold water. Add the boiling water, pineapple syrup, sugar and lemon juice. Mix well and place in the refrigerator until mixture just starts to thicken.

  • Add the crushed pineapple to the gelatin mix and then fold in 4 cups of the whipped topping.

  • Place a layer of cake pieces, then a layer of the pineapple mixture in the prepared bowl. Continue until all the cake and pineapple mixture is used up. Refrigerate for at least 12 hours or overnight.

  • Turn the chilled cake out onto a serving platter and frost it with the remaining whipped topping and sprinkle with the coconut.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

This is a very old recipe that my grandmother used to make around the holidays. The original recipe called a 9 x 13 pan. And the recipe called for "dream whip" which is what we had before cool whip was ever thought of. I still make it with dream whip on occassion as many have forgot what it tastes like. We topped the dessert with coconut and put 12 stemmed cherries on top. Read More

I made this cake last night for my mother's 75th birthday today. Not only was it the easiest cake I've ever "made" it was beautiful and delicious. This cake was so well liked by all that it has now been designated as "the cake" to bring to all future family gatherings. Read More

I made this for my January Bunco group and they absolutely loved it. It was a little difficult to make but the presentation was great. I put it on my pedestal cake plate and it looked like a great big snowball. It was very light and refreshing. I did add the vanilla pudding but I don't think it was worth it and I found I needed 2 angel food cakes. I also added 1 t. coconut extract to the pineapple filling and it was very good! Definately a keeper! Read More
