the end of summer

the end of summer is here. does that sound sad to anyone else? it always seems a little sad to me since it usually signals our longer sun-filled days to come to a close. i am secretly holding onto it just a little longer before i have to break out my sweaters and boots which, don't get me wrong, i love that part of fall :) part of what helps me savor these last fleeting days of summer is this summery dessert. super easy to throw together, light, sweet and all things that are summer. yum!

so if you are feeling like you want a little summer before it's gone, here's what you'll need:

angel food cake
mixed berries (i used blackberries, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries)
half and half

first thing, scoop out how much berry mix you would like to have into a medium-sized bowl. sprinkle a spoonful (or two) of sugar on top and mix well. set aside for 5-10 minutes or until you can't see the sugar granules anymore.

next, cut a slice of angel food cake and place in a small bowl. scoop out your sugary berry mix over the cake.

lastly, drizzle a tablespoon or two of half 'n half over the mixture and enjoy!
