I found this recipe easy to make and it looked fantastic. The cake came out perfectly. I found I only needed to use 1 box of 250g ladyfingers. Also there is an error in the instructions at point 5 - you add vanilla and sugar to the whipped cream.

Great fun recipe. My kids and I enjoyed this. I used an extra box of lemon jello. Each slice is pretty when you cut into it. I didn't have any pineapple juice so I used orange juice instead. Will definetly make again.

directions were a little confusing, having never made anything like this, I had to guess about softening the plain gelatin, and about the whipped cream mixture. I don't like strawberry jello, so I substituted with cherry, and also added grape (for more like stained glass effect) I have had a similar cake, made with vanilla wafers, don't missunderstand, it was good, but the consistancy of the end result seemed to be not quite right, and the prep time was a bit more than 20 minutes, more like2-3 hours.
