  • 1 angel food cake
  • 2 8 oz cream cheese
  • 3 8 oz cool whip
  • 1 8 oz sour cream
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 5 cups sliced strawberries
  • 2 cups blueberries


  1. In a large bowl, tear angel food cake into bite sized
    pieces. Set aside.

  2. In a mixing bowl, mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar on medium speed. Next
    add in the sour cream, vanilla extract and almond extract and mix well. Add in 2 cups of cool whip and mix on low.

  3. Rinse strawberries and blueberries. Pat dry with a paper towel (this helps to not make the dessert too runny) Slice 2 cups of strawberries in quarters. Slice the other 3 cups of strawberries in thin round slices to place around the outside edge of trifle dish.

  4. In your trifle dish, start your layers. First add a third of the angel food cake pieces, enough to cover the bottom. Next add your cream cheese mixture, covering all the angel food cake. Add in a layer of blueberries. Then place your bottom layer of thin sliced strawberries around the outside edge of trifle dish.

  5. Repeat layers above until trifle dish is almost full. For the top layer, spread 1 cup of whipped topping. Now place your blueberries and quartered strawberries on top to resemble the American flag.

  6. Store in refrigerator for 2+ hours until ready to eat!
