Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

Since I've had my little one, we have received an outpouring of support from our friends, family, and neighbors. One of my very good friends brought this treat over for our family and I thought I'd post it since it is a cool, yummy, and simple dessert to put together and it's PERFECT for summer!

But before I get into that, let me point out that she served her treat to us already individualized in champagne glasses. That is one thing I absolutely love to do when entertaining - find fun ways to serve individual portions of things.

You can use champagne glasses to serve a number of desserts (or really whatever you want, but I like them for desserts). It's also fun to use martini or margarita glasses to serve salads (green or fruit) in. The regular sized ones are fine for small servings, but the over sized glasses are more fun to use, in my opinion.

So there you have it, some fun ideas for the next time you entertain! O.k., now on to the strawberry shortcake trifle...

Here's what you'll need:

angel food cake
Cool Whip

Cube the angel food cake into one inch cubes. Slice the strawberries. In the individual champagne glasses (or a trifle bowl), layer the three ingredients, starting with the angel food cake, then the strawberries, followed by the Cool Whip. Repeat the layers until the glass or bowl is filled.
How easy is that?! And so yummy too!
