* We've all been there - a friend asks you to bring dessert to their dinner party but time got away from you and you're scrambling for a quick solution that won't be a letdown. No need to panic! Impress guests with a taste of indulgence by topping bakery fresh angel food cake with strawberries and blueberries and finishing it off with a scoop of sorbet.
