I ate this at a friend of mine’s and made a few changes to the recipe in order to suit my taste. It is absolutely DELICIOUS and, even better, very easy to put together. —Emilia Rosa

What You'll Need
  • 16 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond essence
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 8 ounces heavy cream
  • 1 angel-food cake, cut up into small pieces
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 quart blueberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon Blue Curaçao
  • 1 tablespoon sweet red wine
  1. Beat cream cheese and confectioner's sugar. Add sour cream, almond and vanilla essences, and heavy cream and mix well. Add angel-food cake and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix strawberries with wine and 1/4 cup sugar. In a separate bowl mix blueberries with Blue Curaçao and 1/4 cup sugar. Separate some nice strawberries and blueberries for decoration.
  3. In a tall, clear glass bowl alternate layers of cream cheese, strawberries, cream cheese, blueberries. Top with cream cheese. Decorate with berries. Refrigerate a couple of hours before serving. (I actually make it the day before the party.)
