   Just in case---
   
   (Takes up to two days to prepare properly)
   
   Break angel cake in medium size pieces, spread each
   with small amount of Raspberry Jam, arrange in
   straight sided 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 absorbed, 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
   overnight until jello is set.  Before serving, prepare
   Vanilla Pudding mix and pour over top of jello, using
   a knife to slide down sides of bowl to allow some of
   the pudding to go down sides.  Cover and chill again.
   Garnish with cherries and mint, or use some of the
   candied holiday fruits to decorate top of bowl. When
   serving, be sure to slide spoon to the bottom of the
   bowl for each serving, not only for the colors of the
   different layers, but to be sure each serving 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 made with regular jam, regular
   jello and regular pudding mix. Looks best in a
   straight sided glass bowl.  This has been a family
   favorite for Christmas since my childhood.
