Let me just throw this out there…do we really need another delicious cake, with cream cheese and whipped topping? Probably not. But do we want a cake like this..heck yeah!  And the creamy filling tastes just like cheesecake…it is addictive! This is one of those show stoppers that has everyone asking how long you worked on this..and it is so beautiful…and I want the recipe…you know how it goes. As you are enjoying telling of the hours you spent working your fingers to the bone to make this for them, you can smile to yourself knowing it took about 15 minutes. Yes, you read that right…15 minutes and let me show you how.

There is one thing you need to do to prep for this beforehand though…soften up the cream cheese to room temperature. I don’t want to know the details..just get it to room temperature.  Now that that is out of the way…this is what you do.

First, gather the stuff you need:
1 good store-bought angel food cake
1 8 ounce block of cream cheese (yes,  you can use the low fat kind)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp fresh lemon peel
1 8 ounce tub of whipped topping (I used Cool-Whip)
1 pint each fresh strawberries, cleaned,hulled and sliced in half, blueberries and raspberries. Reserve a few of each berry for garnish.

Just a note – life is so much easier if you have a hand or stand mixer. I’m just sayin. Okay, in a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese until it is light and fluffy. This take about 3 minutes with a hand mixer. Stop the mixer and stir in the sour cream, vanilla, lemon peel and the powdered sugar. If you like being covered in powdered sugar ( I don’t judge) then don’t stir it in first. Turn the mixer back on and beat for another minute. It should be smooth and creamy.  Grab the tub of whipped topping and fold it into the cream cheese mixture. Your mixture should get light and fluffy again. Set this aside for a minute.

Next, remove the angel food cake from the package. On a flat surface, using a bread knife, carefully slice the cake horizontally into three even layers. Transfer the bottom layer onto a serving plate. Pile on about 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture, spreading it out on the layer of the cake. Next, decoratively place 1/2 of your strawberries, blueberries and raspberries on top of the cream cheese mixture. Place the second cake layer on top of the first and repeat the steps. Place the top layer back on the cake, spread with the remaining cream cheese mixture and garnish with reserved berries. Isn’t it pretty…oh so pretty!

There you have it, about 15 minutes from start to finish. Easy as pie…or cake in this case. If you like easy dessert recipes (this one has an easy cheesecake layer) you will love Frozen Blueberry Cheesecake Pie!
