Mandarin Orange Dessert

1 Angel Food cake, already baked
1 3oz. pkg. Orange Jello
3/4 cup boiling Water
1/2 cup cold Water
1-1/2 cup Milk
1 pkg. Vanilla Pudding Mix
1 8oz. tub frozen Whipped Topping, thawed
1 lg. can Mandarin Oranges, well drained

Cut cake into slices or cubes and arrange in 9×13 cake pan, covering the bottom.

In small bowl, combine orange jello and boiling water. Stir until jello is dissolved. Stir in cold water. Pour this orange mixture evenly over the cake slices. Chill for at least one hour.

Mix pudding mix and milk together. Wisk for about 2 minutes. When thickened (after about 5 minutes), fold in the whipped topping and half the Mandarin oranges. Spread over the cake layer.

Top with remaining Mandarin oranges for garnish. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Strawberry Dessert

My recipe is quick and simple since it requires no baking or slicing of fresh strawberries. I use frozen ones in plastic containers already sweetened and pick up the angel food cake from the Wal-Mart bakery. You’ll also need strawberry flavored Cool Whip.

Let the berries and Cool Whip thaw. Then in a pretty see-through bowl I put a layer of angel food cake which I have torn into pieces then a layer of strawberries and then a layer of cool whip. I keep doing that until I use up everything, being sure to keep enough Cool Whip to cover the top completely.

I usually use 2 Cool Whips and 1 large frozen strawberry container.
