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.

Made it for a dinner party and it was a hit! Also very simple to make

Super delicious! I made it two ways, one like the recipe and one with cheesecake pudding instead of vanilla and both were great!

love this! used fresh strawberries and brought it to a family party and it was gone in less than 30 mins! perfect for summer parties
