Lemon Snowball

For a special occasion like a church supper, I make this beautiful dessert. The lemon and coconut flavors go so wonderfully together. Everyone will be asking for the recipe.—Lucy Rickers, Bonsall, California

    20 servings


  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 can (12 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon zest

  • Dash salt
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 1 prepared angel food cake (8 to 10 ounces), cubed
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut


  • Sprinkle gelatin over cold water. Let stand 5 minutes. Add boiling water; stir until gelatin is dissolved. Add next five ingredients; mix well. Refrigerate, stirring occasionally, until mixture begins to thicken, about 25 minutes.
  • In another bowl, beat 2 cups cream until stiff peaks form; fold into lemon mixture. Line a 12-cup bowl with plastic wrap. Layer with 1 cup each lemon filling and cake cubes. Repeat layers five times; top with remaining filling. Refrigerate, covered, 6 hours or up to 2 days.
