Summer holidays: Good for picnics, not so great for baking. Avoid heating up the kitchen by combining Jell-O Gelatin, cake and berries for a truly patriotic treat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this last night for a 4th of July potluck at work today. I made this last night for a 4th of July potluck at work today. It was a great hit! Everyone loved it. I used sugar free strawberry jello to make it a litte more healthy. I don't know if using the sugar free jello made any difference in the amount, but it could have used a little bit more jello. Next time I'll try using a total of 9 oz of jello instead of the 6 oz it calls for. I'll then then just increase the boiling water to 2 1/4 cups & the cold water w/ice to 3 cups. I will definately be making this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this with sugar free strawberry jello and lemon pound cake. I made this with sugar free strawberry jello and lemon pound cake. It was very good. Especially the second day. It turned mushy but it was really good that way. My best friend said it should become a tradition. It isn't that hard to make either, if you can slice fruit and make jello lol. I think I will make this again next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great idea for 4th of July dessert. This is a great idea for 4th of July dessert. I did a trial run last week and the family loved it! I am going to make it again for the 4th, but because we are having a Mexican themed pot luck, I am going to change up the cake recipe only, making a tres leches cake, but will keep the rest as is. Thank you for a great idea!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was a "HIT" I made this for a 4th of July picnic this year. When the guests saw it they were all smiles. They thought it was a "work of art". I am no artist. When it was time for dessert everyone, even the kids, wanted a piece. I would make this again and again. It was not hard at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A party hit Make this for the 4th every year. DELICIOUS!! I add 2 packages cream cheese and a little sugar to jazz up the cool whip topping. I get so many compliments every year, I'm not a huge fan of jello but this cake is so good.
