DIRECTIONS:
1. Crumble 1 of the angel food cakes into large chunks and keep them in a large bowl.
2. Use a sharp knife to split the second cake until three horizontal pieces. Use the star cookie cutter to cut the angelfood cake into large stars.
3. Cover the bottom of the trifle bowl with angel food cake. Spoon a layer of Cool Whip on top. Arrange a layer of sliced strawberries on top of the Cool Whip and press them against the side of the trifle bowl so you can see the layer. Place the blueberries on top of the strawberries and make sure you can see them on the edge of the bowl as well.
4. Place the stars on top of the berries and place them around the edges of the bowl, then fill in the middle with the cake.
