Strawberry Angel Food Trifle
1 (10 inch) angel food cake
2 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar, plus 2 Tbsp
1 (8oz) container of whipped topping (Cool Whip), thawed
1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced
1. Early in the day, slice strawberries and place in a bowl. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp sugar and gently stir. Allow to macerate in the fridge for a few hours. (Macerating brings out the natural juices and the berries will form their own "syrup".)
2. Beat cream cheese and 1 cup sugar in bowl until light and fluffy. Fold in whipped topping with a spatula.
3. Cut angel food cake into thin slices. Place a layer of angel food on bottom of a bowl or trifle dish. Layer cream cheese mixture over top with a spatula. Spoon strawberries and their juice over the cream cheese layer. Repeat layers until all ingredients are used. Garnish top with whole berries.
You can find pre-made angel food cake in the grocery store, usually in the bread or baked goods section.
