Let’s start with the Angel Food Cake, while I have a wonderful recipe passed on from a favorite Aunt for a homemade Angel Food Cake, this time I used a box mix. They are super easy and only need water added. You can bake Angel Food Cake in a variety of pans, the best though is a round tube pan made especially for Angel Food Cakes. You could also go the super easy route and pick one up at the bakery.

Then I added a layer of Jell-O vanilla pudding, just a box of instant is fine. A layer of fresh blueberries were added and then a thick layer of Comstock Lemon Creme Pie Filling.

And to finish them off, Reddi-Wip or other whipped topping and a few more fresh blueberries. It doesn’t get any easier than that!

I used half-pint size jars. If you are giving them as a gift, leave some room at the top, like I did, to add the lid. Tie with a pretty ribbon and add a spoon.

  6. What size jars did you use?

    1. Hi Missi, any size jar will work since you are layering the dessert. I used the half pint jars found in the canning department.

  7. I’m planning on making this for dessert for my hubby and I’s anniversary this week. I just wanted to know if I made these a day ahead if that would be o.k. I worry that the cake on the bottom might turn out soggy or the whipped cream wouldn’t last. Any thoughts on this? Thank you and I can’t wait to try it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Jennifer, I would assemble them the same day. You are right, the cake will get soggy.
      Happy Baking!

  8. These turned out so cute, Liz! I love anything in a jar! Yum!!
