I have made this exact same recipe from a recipe card that was at the grocery store. This time, instead of layering the angel food cake, I made this dessert in a trifle bowl to take to work for a birthday party. I cut the angel food cake into bite size squares and then layered everything in three layers in the trifle bowl. It was very easy to dish out and everyone loved the lightness of this dessert.
This is a great dessert- low cal and refreshing and I have made it many times. To avoid the slipping that some other reviewers have mentioned, I don't cut the cake in layers. I leave the topping in a bowl and just spoon it on the sliced cake as I serve it, garnished with a strawberry. This way, leftovers if you ever have any, don't get soggy.
Like someone else said, this recipe didn't work, It never set for me. Maybe it was because I used a 6 serving vanilla pudding mix instead of 4. That was the only thing I did differently.
This is always a huge hit around our house! Super yummy!
Wonderful dessert! The kids loved it! Thank you for posting :)
This is so good, so light , so pretty, I just loved it. Even if you use all light ingredients, it is still good. A real winner!
Mmm yummy. I made it trifle style as well like Crafty Lady 13 and everyone loved this. They thought a lot more work went into this. I do think that the addition of coconut would add more depth to this dessert and I'm experimenting with adding handful (1/4 cup) of dessicated coconut into this. Will let you know how it works out. Oh I didn't have Cool Whip on hand so I just used regular cream, whipped. Turned out great too.
I got this same recipe from Kraft Foods.com and made it for Easter. Easy to make, looks and tastes good too. I will be making it again.
I have made this several times and poeple go nuts over it. It is very easy to prepare and it also looks and taste great.
I rarely have the time or desire to make a sweet dessert for my family (we eat healthy so "dessert" is usually fruit) so they were very surprised when I presented this to them after dinner last night. It was so easy to put together and looked very impressive. My husband and I both really enjoyed it...especially since we are both trying to loose weight and knew that the cake was very low in fat and calories. We were feeding our six kids plus a friend and all but one of them loved it. I decorated the top with raspberries. I thought cutting the cake was going to be a bugger but it was also very easy. Just use a serated knife. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
