Sometimes I don't want to share with my kids. After a day of telling them to share with one another, I just want to sit and eat a bowl full of yummy all by myself. Like a reward for making it through the day without screaming. This Lemon Raspberry Angel Food Cake Parfait is the perfect “winning at not sharing” treat to end your day.
