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.
