Hello….My name is Heather…and I sometimes used Store bought cakes! Gasp, I know! I am a food blogger, professed Foodie and I do this? The shame…the horror!
You know I am kidding about the shame and horror part, right? I mean, who doesn’t buy a few of these things from time to time? I found out I needed to bring a dessert to a dinner at a friends house the other day. I wanted to bring something good, fresh and well…homemade. BUT, since I found out we were going about 1 hour before I had to think quick! I had this recipe I cut out of the paper a few years ago that I made and everyone liked it so I got down to business ‘assembling’ my dessert!
This is super simple, very quick and you can top it with berries (I had a lot to use) or not at all. This was gone in 15 minutes and no one was the wiser…that I had bought the base and not made it. I admit, I cannot make a good angel food cake. I know at least a few of you that can relate ????
I took a picture with a different camera and didn’t notice that the date said 2004! I didn’t have time to clean up the picture…so this is REAL life, not all of my pic’s can be set up nicely ????
Angel Lush with Pineapple
1 20 oz can of crushed pineapple, undrained
1 3.4 oz package of vanilla instant pudding
1 C thawed Cool Whip
1 10oz angel food cake cut into 3 equal layers
Mix pineapple and dry pudding mix in a bowl. Gently fold in the whipped topping.
Stack the layers on a nice plate (or in my case a carrier), spreading the pudding mixture between each layer and on top.
Refrigerate for 1 hour to set. After that I garnished with the berries so they wouldn’t fall off. I also filled the ‘hole’ with blackberries! Yum!
