November 20th marks Día de la Revolución, a public holiday celebrating the beginning of a revolutionary war which began in 1910 to overthrow the dictator Porfirio Díaz. With many Puerto Vallarta restaurants and shops closed to honor the holiday, and busy long-weekend crowds coming in from other parts of Mexico to enjoy our sunny beaches, why not make your own Revolution Day celebration at home with this Mexican Flag cake?
1-1/2 cups boiling water
2 pkg. (3 oz. each) JELL-O Strawberry Flavor Gelatin
1 cup cold water
1 pkg. (10.75 oz.) prepared pound cake, cut into 10 slices
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 package whipped topping, thawed
4 kiwi, peeled, sliced
10 fresh strawberries, cut in half
ADD boiling water to gelatin mixes; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add enough ice to cold water to make 2 cups. Add to gelatin; stir until melted. Refrigerate 5 min. or until gelatin is slightly thickened.
COVER bottom of 13×9-inch dish with cake; cover with gelatin. Refrigerate 4 hours or until set.
BEAT cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with whisk or mixer until blended; stir in whipped topping. Spread over gelatin. Arrange fruit on cream cheese mixture to resemble the Mexican flag.
