Angel Sherbet Cake
Impress guests with this colorful, layered no-bake cake that looks complicated, but is actually quite simple to make.
1 pint raspberry sherbet
1 pint lime sherbet
1 purchased loaf-style angel food cake* (approximately 7 x 3 3/4-inches)
2 cups heavy whipping cream**
1 to 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Line two bread pans, approximately the same size as the angel food cake, with plastic wrap.
- Soften the sherbet; scoop lime sherbet in one pan and raspberry sherbet in the other. Spread the sherbet with a metal spatula dipped in hot water. Sherbet should be approximately 1/2-inch deep. Refreeze the sherbet in the pans for at least 1 hour or until hard.
- Trim edges of the angel food cake to even them; cut the angel food cake in three lengthwise slices.
- Remove frozen lime and raspberry sherbet from freezer. Alternate layers; cake, sherbet, cake, sherbet and cake. Cut off any oversized sherbet or cake to insure that cake and sherbet are even on all sides of the cake. Refreeze until solid; can be frozen up to 3 days if wrapped well in plastic wrap.
- Before serving, prepare the cake topping by whipping the cream until thick. Add sugar and lemon juice and whip mixture until soft peaks form. Spread whipped cream on cake. Refreeze cake until ready to serve.
- Remove cake from freezer and let soften 5 to10 minutes. Slice with an electric knife. If desired, place cake slices on pools of strawberry or raspberry sauce and top with lemon twist and mint.
Makes 6 to 7 servings.
