Triple Berry Angel Food Trifle 5First of all, I need to tell you that my grandson celebrated his 7th. birthday and requested a Lego themed party. My talented daughter created a darling birthday cake that resembled Lego’s and my grandson absolutely LOVED it!!! As a result, this cake and party are things he’ll probably never forget. 


Since several party guests follow a gluten-free diet, I volunteered to make a gluten-free dessert. Because I’ve made Triple Berry Angel Food Trifle before, it was high on my list of dessert options. It’s a pretty dessert, absolutely delicious, and it’s easy to make gluten-free. In addition, since my son-in-law told me this trifle is probably his favorite, it was an easy decision. 



  • 2 pints fresh blueberries
  • 2 pints fresh raspberries
  • 1 qt fresh strawberries
  • 2 (6 ounces each) instant tapioca pudding
  • 12 oz whipped topping
  • 1 angel food cake mix

You can also use a regular angel food cake to make a Triple Berry Angel Food Trifle. Nonetheless, to make this a gluten free trifle I used a Kinnikinnick Gluten Free Angel Food Cake Mix. I have made this particular angel food cake mix numerous times and it really does make a terrific angel food cake.

I also used a tub of KozyShack gluten-free tapioca pudding to make this yummy trifle. However, feel free to use a regular tapioca pudding mix if you are not on a restrictive diet (KozyShack is also corn free). I combined the tapioca pudding with the whipped topping, then layered chunks of cake, fruit, and pudding.

Triple Berry Angel Food Trifle served at my grandson’s birthday party at the park!

Pictured is the trifle at my grandson’s birthday party. The party was held at a local park. Since it was pretty hot and humid, the trifle bowl looks a little frosty because of the humidity. However, rest assured… it was quickly devoured!!!

I received many compliments on the taste and the overall presentation of this delicious dessert. Surprisingly, guests that are not on a gluten-free diet also dove into Triple Berry Angel Food Trifle. It seems that no one could tell it was even gluten-free!

Pressed for time? Not on a restrictive diet? Simply use a store bought pre-baked angel food cake.

Another option is to make a gluten-free angel food cake and freeze it for use later. Since I have frozen both types of angel food cakes I can tell you that they both freeze well. Simply allow the cake to thaw before assembling your trifle. 

I always use my Anchor Hocking Presence Trifle Bowl whenever I make a trifle, although I did find an Anchor Hocking Presence Footless Trifle with White Plastic Lid that would be perfect to take to a picnic or potluck!

Another fun party occurred last year when my daughter hosted a pirate themed party. That party was a huge hit too. Practically everyone remembers the treasure chest!

Rather than spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing and decorating a birthday cake, consider making a Triple Berry Angel Food Trifle instead. It’s also a good gluten-free option.

Most of all, it’s important to enjoy the party you are hosting.
