Today is the Summer Solstice and with about three weeks to go before America’s Independence Day, I think this recipe is a good one to share. So, for a 4th of July picnic, or just a good ol’ summertime dessert, how about a Coconut Snowball Cake??!!

Prep Time: 15min.
Total Time: 2hr. 10min.
Servings: 16 servings
What’s inside a snowball? More snow. What’s inside this coconut-flake-covered snowball cake? A berry colorful surprise, which can also be fun for a birthday boy or girl!

What You Need
1 pkg. (2-layer size) white cake mix
1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Berry Blue Flavor Gelatin
1-1/4 cups cold milk, divided

1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
1-1/2 cups BAKER’S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut

Y’all haven’t met Zoe Parker yet. I’m in the process of writing her romance with Tucker Tate. But when I saw this recipe, I knew it was something she would bake–and yes, this treat will show up in a scene in the book. 😉
