Sugar-Free Strawberry "shortcake" Dessert

“This is sooooo easy and light - and YUMMY!! For the 4th, I added the layers of blueberries and blue Jello, but I usually just use strawberries. When I got this recipe, it called for regular cakes and Jello, but because there are some diabetics in my family, I tried using the sugar-free angel food cakes (Walmart) and Jello - no one can tell the difference. Everyone loves it and because it is so easy to do, it is one of my all-time favorites! The recipe as follows is for a 9 X 13 pan.”
