This was a great summer dessert and fairly easy to make. To me, the recipe was not written precisely. The confusion lies with the distinction between the unflavored gelatin packets and the flavored gelatin squares (AKA Jello). You need four packages of unflavored gelatin to make this recipe, which isn't clear as written. You need three unflavored packages to mix with the Jello, and then you need one unflavored gelatin package to mix with the pineapple juice. You top with the leftover Jello squares (simply referred to as "gelatin" in the recipe). Overall I enjoyed the dessert, but mine looked more like Jello squares mixed with whipped cream than what is depicted in the photo. Very tasty, and a good way for me to use extra Jello packages in the pantry.
This looks like a great cake to serve for kids. How many envelopes of unflavored gelatin are needed? 3? 4? Thanks!
