1 angel food cake

1 box of vanilla pudding

1 box of strawberries

1 box of blueberries

1 can of whipped cream

1 trifle dish (or any container or cup)


To make, begin with 1 angel food cake, torn into pieces. Arrange a layer of the cake in the bottom of a trifle dish, container, or cup. Next, spread a layer of your favorite vanilla pudding. On top of this layer, you’ll want to place a row of sliced strawberries and then a row of blueberries. Repeat with the cake, pudding, and berries until you reach the top. Finish the trifle off with a layer of freshly whipped cream and you’re done! Try to keep the rows neat for a polished look. Cover and chill before serving.
