What happens when you cross a gelatin mold with strawberry shortcake? You get a jiggly trifle.

For a refreshing dessert, we used fruit juice to make jiggly gelatin. We then cut the gelatin into cubes and layered them with cubes of angel food cake, berries and whipped cream. The result is beautiful, delicious and fun.

One tip: To slice an angel food cake, use a slightly moistened serrated knife. AP
