    Just a question. Do I use the juice from the thawed berries or do I discard it? I am reading the comments about the "globs". If I were to use fresh strawberries, would I need to add water to the gelatin mix? Sounds wonderful and I want to make ASAP. Thanks to anyone who can clarify this for me. Have to rate to post this comment. I am sure it will be five stars based on previous reviews.

    Dessert was a HUGE hit for my 4th of July party! Made a few "less healthy" changes per husband's request - used 13.5 oz. round angel food cake (couldn't find loaf), 2 small pkgs regular strawberry jello, 2 cups half & half instead of 1% milk, 1 small pkg vanilla inst. pudding. Will make again!!

    I have now made this several times, varying the fruit (and flavour of gelatin). It is very popular with my guests and family. One of my favourite combinations is to use frozen mixed berries in combination with raspberry gelatin, and using fresh raspberries as garnish on top of the dessert. Excellent recipe!
