This is an easy cake if you need a quick dessert. You can make a trifle or cut it in 3 layers for a layered cake.
This dessert gets more moist by the day...it just won't last long. :-)

How to Make Angel Cake Trifle

Step-by-Step

  1. For a trifle cut cake in large chunks. About an inch square. For a cake, slice the cake in 3 equal layers.
  2. In a small glass bowl heat strawberry topping in microwave 30-45 seconds until the consistency is such that you can drizzle it over the cake pieces.
    (Use 1 tablespoon orange juice to make it easier to drizzle if necessary.)
  3. In a medium glass bowl heat pineapple in the microwave for 1 minute.
    Cool a little then add the pudding mix.
    Stir and cool completely.
    Add heavy cream
  4. Arrange 1/3 of the cake pieces in the bottom of the trifle dish. Drizzle 1/3 of the strawberry topping over cake.
    Spoon on 1/3 of the pineapple mixture.
    Spoon on 1/3 cool whip
  5. Repeat layers until the ingredients are used up.
    End with cool whip for topping or use Reddy Whip in the can for a decorative topping.

    Cherry, sprinkles, on top...(optional idea)
  6. Refrigerate
