Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

i recommend to slice and use the pound cake as you go, as the recipe used too much for my large bowl ( you could probably substitute other flavors of jello if you make this, but i stuck to strawberry. depending on how sweet you want the cake, you may want to tone it down when adding the powder. i used the whole amount as instructed, but i regret not using just 3/4ths. the dairy dessert was good and surprisingly, the pound cake kept it's integrity. not mushy at all.

could really make this low fat, low sugar by using frozen yogurt, sugar free jello, low fat whipped topping and angel food cake. Still yum!

Would this recipe work if pudding mix were substituted for the gelatin?

Hi! We have not tried substituting pudding for gelatin, but we can't see why it wouldn't work. Please let us know if you give it a try!

very good!!

Made this for a group of lady friends that came to lunch, they all loved it, and wanted the recipe. Unfortunately I didn't get to taste it, will have to make another one for the family.

Looks sssssssoooooooooooo good
