Triple Berry Trifle

Recently I found myself in a berry-buying frenzy.  They were so delicious and fresh and summery I wound up coming home with more berries than I knew what to do with.  There was a tub of Cool Whip thawed in the fridge that I needed to use up and so this handy little dessert was born.  My son loved it so much he had some after dinner, before bed and again for breakfast the next day!

1 loaf angel food cake, store bought or homemade
1 tub Cool Whip, thawed
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries
1 cup sliced strawberries
1/4 granulated sugar

Place rinsed and sliced berries in a bowl.  Cover with sugar, about 1/4 cup, and stir.  Set aside to become juicy.
Cube cake.  Stir cool whip to lighten.  Begin layering with cake, then berries and their juice, then a layer of Cool Whip.  Continue until ingredients are gone.  Cover with plastic wrap and store in fridge overnight.
Serve with a fresh sprig of mint on top.

  2. Misty, thanks for your comment on my strawberry balsamic salad last week. I'm your newest follower and hope you can follow me back. I read your 'about me' section and I'm doing the best I can to live my Catholic faith too. I also have a blog about our faith, "Our Beautiful Catholic Faith" on blogger. I don't tend to it as much as I should due to my job. I'd love to feature this trifle that you kindly shared on my foodie link-up, so could you copy and paste the button/badge in your post ... I have to stay consistent with the others that I choose to feature....thanks!
