Strawberry Heaven

Embark on a delightful culinary journey with a dessert that promises to transport you to a blissful state with every bite: Strawberry Heaven. This divine creation is more than just a dessert; it’s a celebration of the sweet and luscious strawberries that are the star of the show.

Paired with the light and airy angel food cake and the creamy richness of Cool Whip and cream cheese, this dessert is a harmonious blend of textures and flavors that will make your taste buds sing. Whether you’re looking to impress guests at a gathering or simply indulge in a treat that brings joy to your day, Strawberry Heaven is a perfect choice. Here’s how to create this enchanting dessert:


  • 1 angel food cake
  • 1 (16 ounce) container of Cool Whip
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (3 ounce) package of strawberry Jell-O gelatin dessert
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup water


  1. Begin by gathering a medium saucepan. Combine 1/2 cup of sugar, cornstarch, strawberry Jell-O, lemon juice, and water. This mix will form the glistening strawberry glaze that crowns the dessert.
  2. Place the saucepan over medium heat and stir the mixture continuously. You’re looking for it to reach a boil and thicken into a glossy, vibrant glaze. Once achieved, remove from heat and allow it to cool slightly.
  3. Gently fold in the sliced strawberries into the glaze, ensuring they’re lovingly coated with the sweet, tangy mixture.
  4. Next, take the angel food cake and tear it into whimsical 1-inch pieces. Tumble these with 2 cups of Cool Whip, creating a fluffy bed that will form the base of your dessert.
  5. Press this mixture into a 9×13 inch pan. Opting for a glass pan is a delightful choice, as it showcases the beautiful layers you’re about to create.
  6. In a separate bowl, beat together the cream cheese, the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, and vanilla extract until you have a smooth and irresistible mixture. Fold in the remaining Cool Whip, then spread this creamy layer over your angel food cake base with care and grace.
  7. Pour the slightly cooled strawberry glaze over the cream cheese layer, spreading it gently to cover every inch.
  8. Allow your masterpiece to set in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours, ensuring it’s perfectly chilled and set before serving.

Note: If fresh strawberries are elusive, feel free to substitute them with a 16-ounce bag of frozen whole strawberries. Simply thaw and chop them before stirring into the glaze.

Strawberry Heaven is more than just a dessert; it’s a moment of joy, a slice of bliss, and a testament to the simple pleasures that life offers. Enjoy crafting this heavenly treat, and may each bite bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart.
