1 cup whipping (heavy) cream
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups Yoplait® Thick & Creamy vanilla yogurt (from three 6-ounce containers)
1 round angel food cake (8 inches in diameter), cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup quartered fresh strawberries
1 cup fresh raspberries

1. In chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream and sugar with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently stir in yogurt.
2. Place cake pieces in large bowl; gently stir in yogurt mixture. In medium bowl, gently mix berries.
