  1.  Chop strawberries and set aside. 

  2. Remove angel food cake from container and place on a cutting board. Holding the top of the cake, cut in half horizontally, using a bread knife. Then, cut down into 1/2" pieces. Be careful not to press down too hard to avoid smashing the cake down. 

  3. In a medium bowl, gently blend the vanilla pudding and cool whip. Set aside.

  4. Take a large clear bowl or large trifle bowl. Layer the bottom with cake until it's all covered.

  5. Spoon about 1/3 of the pudding-cool whip mixture until cake is covered. 

  6. Generously layer in the strawberries until the cool whip is covered. Spoon in 1/2 of the blueberries. Add 1/2 of the raspberries

  7. Top with the remaining cake pieces. Spoon the remaining pudding-cool whip, reserving about 1/3 of a cup. 

  8. Cover with remaining raspberries and blueberries in the center of the bowl. Use the remaining strawberries to "circle" around those berries. Top the center with remaining pudding-cool whip mixture.

  9. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.
