Good Eating Monday: Strawberry Layered Angel Food

For a fast, elegant dessert, there's nothing like a store-bought angel food cake, strawberries and whipped topping!
I like the convenience of using a store bought angel food  cake to making my own, but you can bake your own if your prefer.
This is a cool, fancy treat for Spring & Summer occasions, whenever Strawberries are in season!
(The photo is a just to give an idea of the general appearance and doesn't really represent this exact cake.)
So today's Good Eating recipe is Strawberry Layered Angel Food Cake!

Strawberry Layered Angel Food:
Ingredients:
1 angel food cake (grocery pre-made or baked yourself)
1 quart of good sized strawberries
1 8oz (or 12oz if you want a little extra) container of whipped topping, any kind, thawed

Directions:
Strawberries: Wash, remove leaves, then slice each strawberry lengthwise, top to bottom, into 3 or 4 slices, depending on size of berry. Set aside

Cake: Put angel food cake on a plate. Cut the cake into three horizontal layers using either a long knife (or I'd heard dental floss is good for this procedure), carefully setting aside first the top, then the middle to one side.

Arrange a layer of strawberries over bottom layer, then place the middle layer back in place and arrange a layer of strawberry slices of it and place the lid back on. 

Finish by "frosting" the whole cake with whipped topping and use any remaining slices as a final decoration on top if you like.
Refrigerate until ready to serve. 

Optional: Spread each cake layer with a little cool whip before layering with strawberry slices.

Eat up, me hearties, yo-ho!
