Strawberry Angel Food Cake Trifle

In a trifle dish
In an aluminum pan

My Aunt Lia made this all the time when I was a kid growing up in Missouri.  It was always served as a summer dessert at our barbeques.  Super easy if you buy pre-made Angel Food Cake.  Can be put together quickly as soon as jello thicken up slightly.   Everyone in my family loves and looks forward to this trifle.

Strawberry Angel Food Cake Trifle
By Aunt Lia

2 Angel Food Cakes
3 tubs Cool Whip Topping (Reserve two cups to decorate)
2 pints cleaned Strawberries (Reserve a few to decorate)
2 small packages of strawberry jello

Clean strawberries and slice.  Reserve a few for decoration.  Prepare jello.  Except cut back on water by 1/2 cup cold to each package.  Place prepared jello into fridge, to thicken slightly.  Cube angel food cake into large size chunks, the size of a golf ball.

When jello is slightly thicken, but still runny add strawberries.  Mix well.

Now, start layering your trifle.  Start with angel food cake on bottom.  Ladle on the strawberry jello mixture to soak into cake.  Take a few spoons of Cool Whip and spread over top of cake/strawberry mixture.  Continue to layer, until you use up all your cake/strawberry /cool whip topping.  Use reserved cool whip and strawberries to decorate.  I used a piping bag with a large star tip to decorate.

Place in fridge for 6 hours for jello to set up and flavors to mingle.  I make mine the day before.  

I have two pics above.  These were both made for different occasions.  One was for home and I put in a glass trifle bowl, the other was in an aluminum pan 10x12x2 for a potluck.

Note:  You can half this recipe easily.
