"A cooking instructor in my 9th grade home ec taught me how to make this, its very simple. I believe its best using a bunt pan, but not those ones with the designs. You can use a box of Angel food cake mix found usually in most stores or any favorite recipe you might have. Usually the only thing you have to add to Angel food Cake Mix is water, but it varies by brand. Included here is ONLY the recipe for the filling and directions on how to fill it. Feel free to substitute with any other fruit, like bananas or blueberries. I suggest looking up alton browns angel food cake recipe for some great tips for angel food cake. Bringing this to an event, but want to try it now? No problem! Save the insides you pull out of the cake and make yourself a trifle, alternating layers of cake, cream and berries in a large glass or small bowl. (You can also do this is disaster strikes with your angel food cake)"

"Fabulous, simple and the "WOW" factor all rolled into one. My daughter chose this as her birthday cake and she could not have been more impressed. I have attached a few photos for you. The first pic shows the cake cut in half horizontally with the "tunnel" filled and ready for assembly. There is also a pic of the cake after we ate half of it! I added more fruit than suggested but that is personal taste. One change I will make is to use a brand name vanilla pudding next time. I used a generic brand and it was lacking in vanilla flavour. Thanks so much for sharing this simple recipe. I will make this many more times and try other fillings too."
"Was finally able to pick up some great looking strawberries for this recipe & since the idea was kind of unique, I followed the recipe right on down & we have a spectacular dessert, thanks to you & your recipe! Will certainly work on another one, especially when we have our local strawberry season! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]"
"We used store bought cake and used frozen strawberries as well. I loved Anme's trifle idea and went with that but did individual parfaits. Layering cake, then strawberries, then cream. We were in heaven! This is a simple recipe that is just soooo yummy! Definitely making this again. :)"
"This is very creamy and good. I made a cake from scratch and had a little problem getting it out of the pan perfectly. I love the way the way the cream mixes with the pudding mix. I used frozen sliced strawberries with sugar about 24 ounces. For our taste there is way too few strawberries for the amount of cake. You list 10 strawberries and that is way less than we used and still my family said there is too much cream for the amount of starberries. Made for Please Make my Recipe."
"Oh, this was delicious!! We all loved it! I made my own angel food cake (mix), and I used a tube/angel food cake pan. Thank you for sharing this recipe! Next time I think Iâ€™ll try raspberries! Mmmmmm!!!!! :)"
"I cheated and bought a store bought cake. This was a major hit! I used fresh picked raspberries in place of strawberries. My husband loved that there was extra cream filling and my daughter calls it sandwich cake."
"This was sooooo good!!!!! Well, I cheated and used a store-bought angel food cake, but this was heavenly any ways!!!!! So So so good. I had plenty of leftover pudding, so I spread some on top."
"I never made angel food cake before... I dont think I greased it enough or something because it didnt come out of its pan and broke apart and just was wrong. Dont know what I did but I screwed the cake part up. So I crumbles up the cake pieces and make a trifle like dish layers the cake and filling in glasses and sprinkles with powdered sugar. That was AMAZING! Although this cake did not turn out as planned, it still was great. Next time I'll just buy an angel food cake or try a diffrent recipe for the cake."
