Angel Food cake with fresh berries and cream are always a crowd pleaser but this Berries and Cream Angel Food Cake Trifle is a show stopper and out of this world good!
One of the best summer desserts is angel food cake! We always eat a few of them in the summer. In the past I always bought them from the store but a few weeks back I finally made this Best Angel Food Cake at home and realized it’s not hard at all!!! I will usually serve the cake with fresh whipped cream and fresh summer berries like blackberries, blueberries, strawberries and raspberries! It makes for a nice light dessert but a few weeks back I was having friends over and wanted to make a pretty dessert that was full of summer goodness and this Berries and Cream Angel Food Cake Trifle was perfect!
Berries and Cream Angel Food Cake Trifle is just as pretty as it tastes. Layers of white cake and fluffy whipped cream have beautiful pops of color from the berries. It’s a red, white and blue and perfect for Fourth of July! You can make it up and the juices from the berries soak into the cake and make it out of this world, crazy, insane good! (How about that for excitement?) If you make this Berries and Cream Angel Food Cake Trifle for your friends and family they’ll all be impressed and crown you the best Fourth of July host ever!!
