   Takes up to two days to prepare properly Break angel cake in medium   size pi
 eces, spread each with small amount of Raspberry Jam, arrange   in straight sid
 ed glass bowl.  Pour over the sherry and weight down   lightly with saucer and 
 cover with plastic wrap, set aside for a few   hours. After sherry has been abs
 orbed, mix Jello according to   directions, do not use ice. Pour over cake and 
 sherry in the bowl.   Cover and place in refrigerator for several hours or over
 night until   jello is set. Before serving, prepare Vanilla Pudding mix and pou
 r   over top of jello, using a knife to slide down sides of bowl to allow   som
 e of the pudding to go down sides. Cover and chill again. Garnish   with cherri
 es and mint, or use some of the candied holiday fruits to   decorate top of bow
 l. When serving, be sure to slide spoon to the   bottom of the bowl for each se
 rving, not only for the colors of the   different layers, but to be sure each s
 erving gets the flavor of the   sherry. Top!
 !
  with a small dollop of Cool Whip Lite.
 
   If you're not watching sugar content or calories, the same recipe can   be ma
 de with regular jam, regular jello and regular pudding mix.   Looks best in a s
 traight sided glass bowl. This has been a family   favorite for Christmas since
  my childhood.
