1 large box jello
1 pkg. frozen fruit
1 container cool whip

Directions:
Directions:
Make jello (any flavor) according to directions. Cube or tear the angel food cake into bite-size pieces. When jello has thickened some, add the fruit (Thaw if using frozen fruit or drain if using canned fruit. Dice fruit to small pieces.) and 1/2 of the cool whip to the jello. Mix together, but leave some solid jello and cool whip. In a cake pan or angel food cake pan, put some of the jello mixture to cover the bottom. Add a layer of angel food cake pieces, pressing down into the jello layer. Add another layer of jello, cake, etc.; ending with cake as last layer. Refrigerate until jello is set and cake is solid. Serve with remaining cool whip and fresh fruit to garnish.

The flavor of jello should also be the same as the fruit used. For example, strawberry jello and frozen strawberries.
