Ambrosia Cake ~ Quick & Easy

Ambrosia Cake Quick & Easy

Growing up I remember looking forward to Ambrosia Salad ( Whipped Fruit Salad) this is a twist in the form of cake. Perfect for any family dinner, picnic or potluck events. This is a year round treat and can be paired up with a nice orange spice tea or Ice Tea.



No need to tap that watch, I gotcha!

Time crunch? This recipe is quick and easy no baking necessary. Should take less than 20 minutes to create.
