Recipe by Laura36

A light, refreshing, super EASY dessert that takes minutes to prepare with a minimum of ingredients. I like this even better than the traditional variation!

I chose this to make in advance for Easter (since we were traveling and arriving home on the holiday). This was SO fast to stir together! I used a package of ladyfinger s(soft) for the cake. The texture of the ladyfingers worked great (similar to angel food cake). I used straw. sorbet and about half of the pkg. of Jello. I also liked how it didn't freeze rock solid and was easy to cut/serve. This is a very pretty pink dessert and the straw. flavor reminded me of the Straw. Shortcake Frozen Good Humor Bars, which we enjoy! Thanks Laura, for posting! UPDATE: my husband loves this topped with some vanilla pudding! Roxygirl
