- 1-2 store-bought angel food cakes, or homemade
- 1 (3.4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 (21 oz.) can cherry pie filling, divided

Step 1: Cube angel food cake(s) into bite-sized pieces.
Step 2: In a large bowl, whisk together the instant vanilla pudding mix and cold milk. Fold in the plain Greek yogurt until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
Step 3: Spread half of the cake cubes into an even layer in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Top this layer with two-thirds of the cherry pie filling.
Step 4: Add the remaining cake cubes on top, then pour the prepared pudding mixture over the cake. Gently spread it into an even layer using a rubber or offset spatula.
Step 5: Use the same spatula to spread the thawed frozen whipped topping over the pudding layer. Drizzle the remaining cherry pie filling on top of the whipped topping and sprinkle with slivered almonds for an extra touch of indulgence.
Step 6: Place the baking dish in the refrigerator and let the cake set for at least 3 hours or, for best results, overnight.
