What you need:

2. Drain your crushed pineapple. You can reserve the juice for smoothies or discard.
3. Add your Cool Whip to a bowl and the crushed pineapple. Mix together!
4. I added 5 drops yellow food coloring for a richer color, totally optional. Stir to incorporate!
5. Gather all your layering components and your glass. (container, bowl, plastic cup…whatever you have works)
6. Add your angel food cake first as your base layer. Your pineapple mixture goes next.
7. Now add your mandarin oranges in a fanned out pattern and one blueberry for the center!
8. Viola…easy to put together and presentation wise, it looks so light and fresh!
Voilà! In just a few easy steps, you have a dessert that’s as delightful to look at as it is to eat. The combination of fluffy cake, creamy pineapple Cool Whip, and juicy fruit makes for a treat that’s perfect for warm-weather gatherings.
