1 large
angel food cake, store bought or homemade from box
3 oz
package lemon jello, divided
8 oz
tub thawed cool whip
maraschino cherries, diced
mini marshmallows
macaroon cookies, broken
1 small
can tidbit pineapple, drained juice reserved for another day
1 c
hot water
1/2 c
butter, softened
remaining 1/2 package of jell-o powder
3 c
powdered sugar or more
1/4 c
evaporated milk

Directions Step-By-Step

Cut 1 inch off top of store bought or prepared baked cake. Hollow out remaining cake, leaving a 1/2 inch shell. Dissolve 1/2 package of the jello in water then refrigerate. When jell-O begins to set up, beat until fluffy. Fold in Cool Whip until blended.
In another bowl, combine fruit, macaroons, marshmallows and pieces of cake that were removed. Combine both mixtures and place in the hollowed out cake. Replace top of cake and frost with fluffy frosting.
Place butter in mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until creamy. Add evaporated milk, and 1 cup of the powdered sugar and Jell-O powder mix; mix for 1 minute on low then on medium about 2 minutes. Add remaining powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until all sugar is incorporated- if it's too thick to spread, add a little more milk one teaspoon at a time, and beat until smooth. If too thin add a little more powdered sugar.

Frosting should read as above - has been adjusted to correct ingredients. 1/4 c. evaporated milk not water and juice. Sorry.

I make a version of this by mixing sweetened strawberries,& cool whip (lg container). I mix sweetened strawberries with the cool whip, spoon some between the layers and frost cake with the rest. Makes for a pretty birthday cake and my kids request it each year.
