This is a fun salad to make and serve. I would suggest not fixing all of the jellos at the same time as they tend to "set up" slightly as they wait their turn to be added to the cooled mold. I "frost" my "jello cake" by thickening over heat 1 1/2 c. pineapple juice, 3 T. flour, 3/4 c. granulated sugar, & 3 T. butter. When this has cooled, whip 1 pint of whipping cream and fold into pineapple mixture. Spread over "jello cake". Enjoy!

This is such a great idea and a hit at a dinner party. I mixed the jello with 1 cup of boiling water and then 1 cup of cold water so that it was at room temp. right away. I also only did two boxes at a time so that they wouldn't set up before they got into the dish! Thank you for the great idea!

HINTS: I found it easiest to mix 1 pkg of gelatin w/ water at a time; aside from preventing the mix from setting as other reviews mentioned, this way you only dirty 1 bowl. It takes about 40 MINUTES for each layer to completely set, so there's plenty of time for the next mix to cool down but no need to get all the flavors ready at once. Make sure a layer has completely set before adding another; even if it seems pretty solid the force of pouring another layer on top can disrupt the previous layer. So also, pour gently, just in case. I made a "frosting" consisting of 2 c whipping cream, 2 t lemon rind & 1/4 c pineapple juice... turned out great!
