Lime Ribbon Delight

July 16, 2017



1 package of our white cake mix
1 cup boiling water
1 package (3 ounces) lime-flavored gelatin
1/2 cup fruit juice or water
1/2 cup drained crushed pineapple
1/4 cup chopped nuts
Few drops lemon juice
1 cup chilled whipping cream
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar

Bake cake mix in 9-inch layer pan as directed on package. Cool. Pour boiling water over gelatin in bowl, stirring until gelatin is dissolved. Stir in fruit juice; chill until slightly thickened but not set. Stir in pineapple, nuts and lemon juice.

Place 2 strips of aluminum foil, 2 to 3 inches wide, in each of the layer pans, extending foil over edges of pans. Place a cooled cake layer in each pan, one layer right side up and one layer upside down. Spoon gelatin mixture evenly on the layers; chill until gelatin is firm.

In chilled bowl, beat cream and sugar until stiff. With extending foil strips, left cake out of pans; stack layers gelatin side up. Frost side of cake with whipped cream. Because of the gelatin and whipped cream, refrigerate any leftover cake.

For a St. Patrick’s Day touch, miniature while clay pipes decorate the pictured cake.

    I recognize it. Does it need refrigeration?
