No matter where I take this dessert, the bowl gets emptied in minutes. It's fun to make because everyone "oohs" and "ahhs" over how pretty it is.

This was wonderful, I made it for a Christmas morning and by Christmas evening it was gone.

I second everyone's thoughts about this recipe! It was quick, easy, and delicious! I did substitute the whipped cream for no-sugar Cool Whip and it was absolutely perfect. There was plenty of sugar in the fruit, cake, and pudding. I made sure to strain most of the juice from the strawberries and I also created a layer of pudding so that the juice couldn't drop down and soak the cake.

I made this for the first time for Easter dinner and everyone loved it! I did add a few more strawberries and used low fat cool whip in place of the whipping cream. The angel food cake did not soggy and I found that one premade loaf from the grocery to be enough for the recipe and made it extra easy! It looked beautiful, tasted great, and I will definitely make it again!
