This is time-consuming because each layer has to set before the next layer can be poured in. (I prepare it one day and unmold it and serve the next.) It's well worth it for a special occasion. I do this for Memorial Day and Fourth of July. At Christmas, I substitute lime Jello for first layer with 1 1/3 cup boiling water and 8 oz. can drained crushed pineapple mixed in. This is beautiful in a star mold, but also pretty served in another shape or in a glass bowl.
