Strawberry Angel Cake

I'm a HUGE fan of fresh fruits and veggies. That's probably why I didn't kick and scream when the Mariachi Husband and I decided to move. I thought, we can start a garden. The weather is gorgeous year round. And yum, who doesn't like to buy local fresh produce?

Around here, gardens are growing and the crops are gorgeous! We want to take Sophia to a local berry patch. I think it would be amazing and so much fun! The Mariachi Husband got up extra early this morning. And he went to go buy us some berries. He found a really good deal. And now, we have a flat of strawberries. For only $4!

So I decided that I needed to find some good recipes. As I was doing a quick Google search, I decided to check my email. And in my inbox, sat an email from Gooseberry Patch. Another one of those gems that La Chiquitita shared with me. :)

I just love their weekly recipes and tips. And low and behold, this week the recipe was for Strawberry Angel Cake. So delicious sounding! And oh so easy too!

Strawberry Angel Cake

Submitted by: Lisa Johnson from Hallsville, Texas

16-oz. baked angel food cake
2 c. whipping cream
2/3 c. strawberry ice cream topping
2 pts. strawberries, hulled and halved

Slice cake horizontally into 4 layers; set aside. In a chilled bowl with an electric mixer on high speed, beat whipping cream and topping until stiff peaks form. Place bottom layer of cake on a cake plate; frost with a 1/2-inch layer of whipped cream mixture. Repeat with remaining cake layers. Frost entire cake with remaining whipped cream mixture, making sure to cover top and sides of cake. Arrange berries over top and sides, pressing firmly into whipped cream. Serve immediately or keep chilled up to 8 hours. Makes 10 servings.

I hope you enjoy it! It just so happens that we have everything we need. Guess what we're having for dessert tonight... ~A
