Beautiful to look at and delicious to eat! Lemon and strawberry jello layered with pound cake, fresh strawberries and whipped topping make for a very easy colorful dessert. Gelatin flavors can be varied to coordinate with special holidays. For fewer calories, use 2 pkgs each of (.3oz) sugar free jello and reduced fat whipped topping. Cook time is chilling time required.

This was delicious and very easy to put together. I used sugar free jello and cubed madiera cake (as we cannot buy pound cake here and I was too lazy to make any) I also used real whipped cream. As there are only two of us I was also able to cut the recipe in half quite successfully with no problems. Ihis is something I will make again. Thanks very much!
