MAKE CHERRY JELLO LAYER:

Add 2 cups of cold water and stir.
Divide cherry Jello into glass dishes.
Place in refrigerator to set, at least 2 hours.
MAKE CREAMY BLUE JELLO LAYER:
When cherry Jello is set, or just about set, add the blue gelatin to a large bowl.
Heat 1 cup of water in the microwave for 2-3 minutes or until boiling.
Slowly add boiling water to gelatin and stir for 1-2 minutes or until completely dissolved.
Add 1 cup of cold water and stir.
Place the blue Jello in the refrigerator to chill slightly, you don't want to add warm Jello to the whipped topping.
Add 2 containers of Cool Whip to a large bowl and gradually add the whipped topping to the blue Jello, stirring gently after each addition.
After completely combined, place it in the refrigerator to chill until firm, about 1 hour.
After the blue Jello mixture is set, transfer it to a large disposable decorator bag. **see notes
Transfer the third container of Cool Whip to another bag.
Snip off the tip of the bag and pipe the whipped topping onto the cherry Jello.
Then snip off the tip of the bag with the blue Jello mixture and pipe it onto the whipped topping.
Decorate with additional whipped topping, a cherry, and sprinkles.
