My mother made this desert somewhere differently. She would first make the different flavor Jell-O and make sure that they set. Then she would mix unflavored jelli with whip cream, and a little pineapple juice. Then she would Chop the different flavored gelatin into squares and mix them with the whip cream mixture and refrigerate it. It was an awesome dessert that I enjoy even today as an adult.
