The cherry pie filling freezes very well. If you want to assemble the entire dessert in a freezeable container or dish it will thaw perfectly well and can be served right from the container.

Assembly Directions:
With a serrated knife remove and discard any dark crust areas on angel food cake. Cut cake into one-inch cubes. With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese with powdered sugar. Stir in the whipped topping. Fold in the cake cubes.

To freeze:
Lightly pack the cake cube mixture into a freezer container or large, labeled freezer bag. Seal and freeze.

To Serve:
Thaw cake mixture thoroughly. In a punch bowl, or other large serving dish, spread half the mixture. Top with half the cherry pie filling. Layer on remaining cake mixture and finish with remaining cherry pie filling.

 

Options:
Blueberry or peach pie filling would be equally suitable for this dessert. Freshly made strawberry pie filling would be wonderful, but you wouldn’t be able to freeze the strawberries unless you don’t mind them being mushy.
Freshly made real whipped cream is a real treat in this recipe. This would replace the ready-made whipped topping.
