  • Prepare jewels: In shallow pans, prepare orange, cherry, lime Jell-O. In each pan add 1 cup boiling water, 1 flavor of Jell-O, and 1/2 cup of cold water. Stir and dissolve Jell-O in each pan. Chill overnight.
  • Prepare cake: Over medium heat, mix pineapple juice, sugar, lemon Jell-O until Jell-O dissolves. Then add 1/2 cup cold water. Chill for about 1-2 hours until mixture is syrupy.
  • Meanwhile, line a large springform pan with the lady fingers--bottom and sides. Place the lady fingers "standing up" around the side of the pan for best presentation. Then cut the "jewel" Jell-O trays into smallish cubes and set aside. Add heavy cream to the lemon Jell-O mixture. Fold in the "jewels." Then pour into the springform pan. Chill overnight. Serve cold.


This recipe is from an old Jell-O cookbook--probably late 60s. My mother used to make this for Father's Day or 4th of July cookouts. It's cold and refreshing. Always makes a fabulous presentation because when you cut it, the "jewels" are seen. Original recipe calls for orange, cherry, lime Jell-O, but you can substitute for your favorite--definitely want variety of flavors/colors.
