So this is not technically baking, but it's a nice, light and fluffy summer dessert, sure to please.

1 cup cold water
1 1/2 cups boiling water
2/3 cup sugar
8 teaspoons instant coffee
1 envelope Dream Whip, prepared


Sprinkle gelatin on top of cold water to soften. Add boiling water and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Add sugar and coffee. Stir until dissolved. Pour gelatin into desired bowl or mold. Refrigerate until it reaches the consistency of unbeaten egg whites. Remove from refrigerator and beat in Dream Whip. Beat well to avoid separating. Chill until firm.
