Talk about a dessert that pops. Sometimes, I make this easy cake even more eye-catching by coloring the whipped cream, too. Use whatever sherbet flavor combination you like. —Bonnie Hawkins, Elkhorn, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW

"This looks very much like the dessert my Aunt and Mom used to make for all special events in the early 1950's! I was a little girl then and loved it. I have been looking for the recipe forever, since both my Mom and Aunt never used recipes and they always made homemade Angel Food cakes. They used separate flavors of sherbet instead of the rainbow flavor."
