How to Prepare the Heaven On Earth Cake


  • 1-2 store-bought angel food cakes (or homemade)
  • 3.4 oz instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 21 oz can cherry pie filling, divided
  • 8 oz container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Almond slivers (garnish, as needed (toasted, optional))


  1. Cut the angel food cake into small, bite-sized pieces.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, blend the pudding mix with milk until smooth. Then, gently fold in the Greek yogurt until the mixture is uniform.
  3. Arrange half of the cake pieces in a single layer covering the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish. Over this layer, evenly spread two-thirds of the cherry pie filling.
  4. Add the remaining cake pieces on top of the cherry layer.
  5. Carefully pour the pudding mixture over the cake, ensuring it covers all the pieces. Smooth out this layer.
  6. Evenly spread the thawed whipped topping over the pudding layer using a spatula.
  7. Drizzle the remaining cherry pie filling over the whipped topping. Finish by sprinkling almond slivers across the top.
  8. Refrigerate the cake for at least 3 hours, or ideally overnight, to allow it to set properly before serving


What type of angel food cake works best for this recipe?

Either store-bought or homemade angel food cake will work well for the Heaven on Earth Cake. Store-bought is convenient and provides a uniform texture and sweetness, which helps in layering and soaking up the pudding mixture effectively. If you prefer a more personalized touch or have dietary restrictions, a homemade angel food cake can be adjusted to your liking.

Can I use a different type of pudding or yogurt in the recipe?

The recipe calls for instant vanilla pudding and plain Greek yogurt to maintain a balance of sweetness and tartness while adding creaminess. You can substitute the vanilla pudding with another flavor such as lemon or strawberry to complement the cherry pie filling. Similarly, using a flavored or low-fat Greek yogurt can alter the flavor profile slightly, but it should still work well with the other ingredients.

How important is it to let the cake refrigerate overnight?

Refrigerating the cake for at least 3 hours or, ideally, overnight is crucial for allowing all the layers to meld together and for the cake to absorb the pudding mixture, which enhances its overall texture and flavor. This resting period helps the cake set properly, making it easier to cut and serve while maintaining its layered structure.

What are some suitable alternatives to cherry pie filling?

If cherry pie filling isn’t to your taste or you’re looking for variety, you can easily substitute it with other pie fillings such as blueberry, strawberry, or mixed berry. Each option provides a unique flavor contrast with the sweet pudding and neutral cake, allowing for customization based on personal preferences or seasonal availability.

Is there a nut-free alternative for garnishing this cake?

If you’re looking to avoid nuts due to allergies or personal preference, you can omit the almond slivers or replace them with a garnish like toasted coconut, chocolate shavings, or even a sprinkle of crushed graham crackers to add texture and visual appeal without the use of nuts.
