(by Aunt Eileen [Knouse] Carter)

1 - 6oz. box strawberry Jell-O
2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup white sugar (more if you wish)
2 - 10oz. bags frozen strawberries (thawed but NOT drained)
2 - 8oz. containers Cool Whip
1 box angelfood cake mix
Baker's angelflake coconut
a few whole strawberries (sliced)

Prepare angelfood cake according to box directions, then cool the cake completely. In a large bowl add strawberry Jell-O powder and boiling water--stir with a whisk until dissolved. Add white sugar and thawed strawberries/juice--stir well. Taste--add more white sugar if desired, then stir again. Refrigerate until mixture starts to gel, then remove from refrigerator. Break the angelfood cake into walnut sized pieces. Add the cake pieces and one container of Cool Whip to the Jell-O mixture--stir to mix. Spread the whole mixture into a glass baking dish. Spread the second container of Cool Whip over the whole top. Sprinkle some coconut over the top of the Cool Whip. Arrange some sliced strawberries over the top. Refrigerate until cold.
