Layered Black Cherry and Peaches & Cream Gelatin

Prep Time 4 1/2 hours

It doesn't always have to be about cake! I served this festive and fun layered gelatin at my son's birthday party and it was the talk of the pre-school.  Give a try! Combine your favorite Jell-O® flavors and decorate with your child's favorite fruit. A good-quality bundt pan gives it a fun shape and a perfect center pocket to present tasty treats in.
