Snow Ball Cake


  • 2 pkgs. Knox gelatin
  • 4 Tbsp. cold water
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 can crushed pineapple with juice
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 box angel food cake mix white or lemon
  • 2 (12 oz.) containers Cool Whip
  • Coconut optional


  • Bake angel food cake mix as directed. In medium size bowl, dissolve 2 envelopes of Knox gelatin in 4 Tbsp. water. Add 1 cup boiling water (stir well to dissolve gelatin). Add crushed pineapple with juice, sugar, salt and lemon juice. Cool until mixture is jelled. Meanwhile, line a large bowl with waxed paper. Set aside. Tear the cooled angel food cake up into bits and put it into another large bowl. When the first mixture is jelled, mix it together with the 12 oz. of Cool Whip. Fold into the bits of angel food cake. Mix well, then pour into large bowl lined with wax paper. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. After the cake mixture has chilled, turn it out onto a plate, remove the wax paper and then cover it with the whipping cream or cool whip. Optional -- sprinkle coconut over top.
