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!
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
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!
