Pineapple Snowball Cake

“Dr. and Mrs. Turner brought this cake regularly to meetings of the Mid-Ohio Scottish Heritage Association. I always made sure to leave room on my plate for this dessert! The recipe was published in "The Centennial Cookbook of the Daughters of Scotland". Cooking time includes overnight chilling.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soften gelatine in cold water. Add boiling water, sugar, juice, pineapple and salt. Mix well. Refrigerate until partly jelled.
  2. Prepare 2 packages whipped topping mix according to directions. Fold into jelled mixture.
  3. Line a large mixing bowl with waxed paper or extra-wide plastic wrap. Break the angel food cake into 1-inch chunks. In the lined mixing bowl, make layers of cake and jelled mixture, alternating and finishing with jelled mixture.
  4. Chill overnight.
  5. Next day, prepare 1 package whipped topping mix. Take cake from refrigerator and turn upside down on large plate. Remove bowl and waxed paper. Frost with whipped topping mix. Chill until serving time.
  6. NOTE: If you substitute Cool Whip or whipped cream, you will need six cups. However, I can't speak to the results of using those ingredients.
