This fashionable creation was extra special shaped like a fancy hat with fruit-scalloped brim.—Lois Jacobsen, Dallas, Wisconsin


  • 1 cup ginger ale
  • 1 package (3 ounces) strawberry or cherry gelatin
  • 1 can (15 ounces) fruit cocktail, drained
  • 1-1/2 cups cooked rice, chilled
  • 1 carton (12 ounces) whipped topping
  • 2 red Fruit by the Foot fruit rolls
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • Silk flowers, optional


  1. In a small saucepan, bring ginger ale to a boil. Remove from the heat; stir in gelatin until dissolved. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until partially set. Stir in fruit cocktail and rice. Fold in whipped topping. Spoon 2 cups mixture into a 9-in. pie plate lined with plastic wrap.
  2. Spoon remaining mixture into a 1-qt. round-bottomed bowl lined with plastic wrap. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or until set. Invert gelatin from bowl on top. wrap fruit rolls around the hat and tie into a bow. Garnish with strawberries and silk flowers if desired.
