Learned to make this while living with a German family in Bavaria. It is simple but elegant and so tasty. You can use any fruit that you like and match the jello to the fruit you are using. Enjoy.

    To make GLAZE place sugar in sauce pan on stove top. Dissolve cornstarch in small amount of water then add rest of water. Add this to sauce pan. Stir over medium high heat until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to rolling boil and mixfute becomes thick. Remove from heat and add jello stirring until dissolved. Allow to cool a few minutes then mix with sliced fruit. Pour onto cake being careful to not spill mixture over sides of the cake. Refrigerate at least one hour. Serve with whipped topping.

    This can be made with any fruit you desire...fresh/frozen/canned. If canned, drain the juice and use as part of the liquid in making the glaze. I also like to use a matching jello or one that blends well with the fruit selected.
