Strawberry Angel-Food Trifle

What better to top off a pretty table than with a yummy dessert.  Last year I made this strawberry angle-food trifle for the 4th of July.  It was super easy and delicious.

Strawberry Angel-Food Trifle
1 pound frozen strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 store-bought angel-food cake
16-ounce container Cool Whip
Mint for garnish
Place the strawberries and sugar in a saucepan. Heat gently until the strawberries are soft and the sugar has dissolved. Allow the juices to reduce slightly, until they have the consistency of a thin syrup. Let cool.

Tear fist-sized pieces from the angel-food cake and use them to line the bottom of a large, clear bowl or trifle dish. Cover with a layer of Cool Whip and a layer of strawberries in syrup, filling in any holes in the previous layer. Add another layer of cake and continue building until all the ingredients have been used, ending with a few spoonfuls of Cool Whip and strawberries and a sprig of mint as a garnish. 



  1. Yum!!! I will be trying this!

  2. Looks scrumptious and a gorgeous way to fancy up the table! Do you deliver ;)
