Perfect Summer dessert! Simple easy no cooking involved! I used fresh strawberries instead of frozen and used real whipped cream. Rather than the cake being the top layer I opted to keep the whip cream on top to keep the cake moist and fresh. I like the lighter angel food cake in a trifle over a pound cake or yellow cake. This is great to whip up for a cook-out and elegant enough to serve to guests. Read More

Absolutely fantastic. My guests not only LOVED it, some of them took THIRD helpings ! I did make some changes: I used regular pudding, not sugar free. I cubed the angel food cake. I whipped my own cream with the recipe from this site that adds cream cheese so it's stiffer. I also used as many fresh strawberries as I could, first allowing them to sit in a bowl after being sprinkled with sugar so as to create a sweet strawberry sauce. This was so easy to make and tasted so good, that it's going to be in heavy rotation at all parties and potlucks in the future. Read More

This was delicious! I did sub out a couple ingredients, but nothing major. I used pound cake instead of angel food (because that was all they had at the store!) and I used fresh strawberries and regular (not sugar-free) vanilla pudding, because I already had them. It was great! My daughter loved it. Similar to the strawberry shortcake my grandma always made us, but the vanilla pudding was a great touch. Will definitely make again sometime - it was very easy to do! Read More

I made this for my church 5th Sunday Fellowship. Everyone liked it. Changes I made: I mixed 2 cans fruit cocktail drained and 1 large can sliced peaches drained and diced to the strawberries. In addition to the pudding I added 8 oz cream cheese vanilla extract and 1 can of condensed milk. To the cool whip I added the drained pineapples. I used small angel food cake cups. I placed a spoon of the pudding in the cake cup topped with the fruits and then the cool whip with pineapples. It turned out light and delicious. Thanks for sharing. Read More

This was delicious! Although the photo doesn t look like the directions. Next time I will go the photo alternating layers ending with whip cream on top. And I would make double the pudding to use in the layers. Will definitely make again! Read More
