The night before, slice strawberries and mix with approx. 1/4c of sugar and a little water to create a light syrup. Do the same with whole blueberries in separate bowl. Refrigerate.
The next day, before assembling the trifle, whip the heavy cream, confectioners sugar, and extracts until fairly stiff. Extracts and sugar may be adjusted according to preference.
Make a layer of pieces of angel food cake, then top with a little vanilla yogurt, then berries, then whipped cream. Repeat until you've filled your bowl to the top!
Keep chilled until serving.
Frozen berries can be substituted for fresh berries.
