What's For Dinner? Angel Lush with Pineapple

I found this cake in the coupon flier this week and it looked so springy I just had to give it a try.  It's a Dole cake and came with a coupon for Dole Pineapple.  The picture from the recipe had raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries but I opted for just strawberries since fresh berries are not really in season yet.  I did not feel like I was missing anything at all!

Here's what you need:
1 20 oz can Crushed Pineapple, undrained (try to use the pineapple in 100% pineapple juice)
1 3.4 oz package Jell-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1 cup thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping
1 10 oz round angel food cake, cut into 3 layers
Seasonal Berries

Mix pineapple and dry pudding mix in medium bowl. Gently stir in whipped topping.

Place bottom layer of the angel food cake on a plate.  Using a spatula, spread 1/3 of the pineapple mix on top of the layer.  Place the middle layer on top of the bottom layer, spread 1/3 of the pineapple mix on that layer.  Place the top layer on top of the middle layer and spread remaining 1/3 of the pineapple mix.

Place berries on top in a visually pleasing manor.

My cake had the pineapple mix dripping out all over so to make it look better I smoothed the mix around the sides of the cake.

Place the cake in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to chill.

This cake will serve 10 to 12 but you will want to eat it half of it yourself!

We declared this cake to be Yum-tacular!!
