Pretty Berry Birthday Angel Food Cake

This cake was the inspiration for a birthday brunch (because I would need a lot of people to eat it!)  

Topped and filled with cool whip/pudding and strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and cherries, it is the perfect light birthday dessert that you won't feel bad eating for brunch!

The powdered sugar sifted over top gives it a little extra pizzazz

There really aren't many instructions for this:

Buy and bake an angel food cake according to the directions.
When cool, slice the cake in half.   Brush off any extra crumbs at this point.
Mix together cool whip and vanilla pudding.   2 parts cool whip to 1 part pudding.
Put a layer of cool whip/pudding on the bottom layer.  
Top with (chopped) strawberries, whole raspberries and blueberries.   (I didn't put the black berries or cherries in the middle because they're so big)
Add a bit more cool whip/pudding on top of the berries to help the top layer stay in place.
Put top layer on.
Spoon cool whip/pudding on top and decorate with all the berries.
Place berries all around the bottom edge (being careful to place them so they won't roll when you move the cake!)
Sift powdered sugar over top of the berries.

Happy Birthday!
