  • 8 oz Raspberries
  • 1 lb Strawberries
  • 1 Mango
  • 1 Orange optional
  • 1 lb Green Grapes
  • 1 lb Purple Grapes
  • 14 oz D'Gari Gelatin Dessert pineapple or mango


  • Prepare fruits for the cake. Clean and cut them into equal pieces. I wouldn't recommend cutting raspberries. Note: Jello is best in mango or pineapple flavor. I found that a combination of the two works amazing together.
    Fruits on the table such as grapes, green and red, strawberries, raspberries, a mango and an orange and a packet of mango gelatin
  • Place raspberries, followed by strawberries. This is how the dessert will look like on the outside.

  • Add mango, orange (I skipped on the orange) and green grapes.

  • Finish off by laying out purple grapes. Dissolve jello in hot water, following instructions on the box. Let the jello mixture cool competently.

  • Slowly pour in the mixture over the fruits. Shake the tray a little, so it goes through all the sides. Cover the fruit competently with the jello.

  • Leave it refrigerated until completely set, for about 2 hours. In order to remove it from the tray, pour hot water into a large bowl, and place the dish into it. As soon as you see a little bit of melting on the sides, cover the jello with a serving plate and turn it over. If necessary, wipe off the sides around the jello.

  • Return to the refrigerator to keep it cold, until ready to serve. I would only remove the cake from tray a few hours before serving.
