  • 1 lb fresh strawberries , washed, dried, hulled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (optional)
  • 8 oz. Cool Whip, thawed in fridge
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries , washed and dried
  • 1 angel food cake (store-bought or homemade)
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • additional strawberries for top garnish , sliced


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the strawberries and sugar. Let rest 10 minutes then lightly mash. (Alternatively, mash strawberries without sugar.) Fold in the Cool Whip; set aside.

  • Remove cake from package and invert onto serving platter. Use a large serrated knife to slice cake in three layers. Remove top two layers and spread a layer of strawberry mixture over bottom layer of cake. Sprinkle with one-third of the blueberries. Top with middle cake layer and spread more mixture and one-third blueberries on second layer. Place remaining cake layer on top.

  • Fold marshmallows into remaining strawberry mixture in bowl. Evenly spread over outer edges of cake until fully covered. Top with additional slices of strawberries and the remaining blueberries. Optional: garnish with mint leaves.

  • Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving so the marshmallows have time to soak in the juices. Slice and serve cold.


  • Nutritional information is an estimate only.
  • For cleaner presentation, slide pieces of wax paper under edges of cake while filling and frosting, then remove when done.
