Let's Make It
Place cake on serving plate. Cut a 3/4-inch-thick horizontal slice from top of cake; set aside. With small knife, cut a 1-inch-wide and 1-inch-deep tunnel inside center of cake, being careful to not cut through to bottom or side of cake. Remove cutout and reserve for other use. (See tip.)
Add boiling water to gelatin mix in large bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add enough cold water to ice to measure 3/4 cup; stir into gelatin until ice is completely melted. Remove 1/2 cup gelatin; pour into separate medium bowl. Add COOL WHIP; stir with whisk until blended. Refrigerate 10 to 15 min. or until thick enough to spread.
Meanwhile, refrigerate remaining plain gelatin 5 to 10 min. or until thickened. Stir in 3/4 cup blueberries; spoon into tunnel of cake. Replace top of cake. Frost cake with reserved thickened COOL WHIP mixture. Top with the remaining blueberries just before serving.
Prepare using 1 pkg. (0.3 oz.) JELL-O Lemon Flavor Sugar Free Gelatin and COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping.
How to Use the Reserved Cake Cutout
Cut the removed (unused) cake piece into 1/2-inch pieces; place in medium bowl. Add sliced fresh strawberries; mix lightly. Serve topped with thawed COOL WHIP.
