This is another one of my recipes I made this weekend for PAC... I used strawberry jello that is what I had on hand. This would be a great cake to take to a church potluck, very versatile and easy; not to mentioned scrumptious. I think the kids would love this one. it had all the things dh loves all together, cool whip and coconut. For sure a 5 star winner! Thanks Jac
