This picture doesn't do it justice! You can have a beautiful dessert that is low in fat and calories. The suger free Jello products are great, and I prefer the Lite version of frozen whipped topping.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Angel food cake is such a wonderfully light dessert. Now that I've made this dish once, you can bet that I will make it for next 4th of July! It looks so Americana. Although there was enough whipped topping to make the recipe taste good, I think I will add more whipped topping on the next one for presentation purposes.
