I was glad to find this recipe online. I made it YEARS ago from the same recipe I found in a magazine and it's wonderful. Very festive but not tacky, tasty but not too sweet, it's a winner in my recipe book.
Tips and tricks:
Do NOT use a regular fork - it MUST be a utility fork as the recipe states; otherwise you'll get too many tiny holes and your cake will look like a Christmas mess. A utility fork is one like you use for barbeque's - only two large tines.
Be sure you use a whipped topping and NOT traditional icing like the recipe calls for otherwise the cake will be too sweet for most tastes. No one puts icing on their Jello but they do put whipped topping so use common sense here.
Follow the directions exactly as they are written and it will turn out great. I've made it many times for company and they are always impressed! Everyone always asks: "How did you do that?!"
