This is perfect to serve during the summer or after a heavy meal.

  • 2 cups (500 mL) of prepared mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries)
  • Approx. 1 cup (250 mL) fresh whipping cream (35% cream). NOTE: One small carton of 237 mL is sufficient.
  • 1-2 Tbsp (15-30 mL) sugar, sweeten to suit your taste
  • 1 angel food cake (store bought or homemade, whichever you prefer)(You can also make this recipe with white cake)
  • Optional: 2 Tbsp (30 mL) of real maple syrup, drizzled over the top
    Tip: To make this cake look more formal, add small edible flowers as garnishes on top


  1. Wash and spin berries. If using strawberries, remove tops and cut into bite sized pieces. Keep a few whole for styling. Simply wash smaller berries like blueberries, raspberries or blackberries. Combine in a large bowl.
  2. In a stainless-steel bowl, whip cream with sugar until firm peaks form.
  3. Remove the angel food cake from the packaging and slice in half vertically. Place bottom half onto platter.
  4. Take ½ of the whipped cream and spread an even layer on the cake. Then evenly top with half the fresh berries.
  5. Place the other piece of angel food cake on top of the layer of fresh berries. Repeat step two again with remaining ingredients.
  6. Optional: drizzle with maple syrup.
