Original recipe yields 8 servings



  1. Dissolve the cherry gelatin in 1 cup of boiling water. When dissolved, stir in 1/2 cup of cold water and pour into an eight or nine inch square pan. Refrigerate until firm. Repeat this process with the lime and orange flavors.
  2. In a small sauce pan, mix together the lemon gelatin with the pineapple syrup. Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring constantly. When the gelatin is dissolved, set aside and allow to cool to room temperature until thick.
  3. Once the cherry, lime, and orange gelatin is firm, cut into 1 to 2 inch cubes. Beat the whip cream into stiff peaks, and fold it into the lemon pineapple mixture. Fold the gelatin cubes into the whipped cream mixture.
  4. Pour the gelatin and whipped cream mixture into a buttered and graham cracker crumb dusted 9 inch tube pan. Chill for several hours before unmolding.

I wasn't sure what I was suppose to do with the butter and graham cracker crumbs. Do I use them as I would use grease and flour for a cake pan or use it like melted butter and graham crumbs in a crust like cheesecake. I ended up just not using that part and mixed up jello and pineapple juice mixture in a bowl and it was a hit at my sons first birthday party.



I've never made a geletin salad in my life. :) I've made jello, but never been creative about it. Considering this was the first one I've ever tried, (pressured into it for Thanksgiving) I consider this recipe to be tops. It looks difficult, but even my 6 year old had fun with it. Thanks!



My family enjoyed eating this. I was a little disappointed in how it looked. i read that it was beautiful, but mine didn't turn out that way. After they tasted it, everyone loved it and wanted more.
