I made this cake for work and for july 4th. Everyone loved it. One thing, after you stir the ice cubes in the jello, it took about 30 minutes to gel enough to put on top of pound cake. I then let it gel for about 4 hours before putting white layer on. It stayed together beautifully when served, although it didn't last long either time I made it! It disappeared very quickly. I also love that it is patriotic and salutes our country!!!!!!!
