Take advantage of strawberry season

Last night I made this cake for my dad’s birthday.  It couldn’t have been easier, but the kids were very impressed.

Buy a store bought angel food cake.  Then, spread whipped topping over it.  Slice strawberries and make the design of your choice. Fill the center reservoir with leftover strawberries, and voila! Your kids will think you’re a genius.  My dad and husband were pretty impressed too!

I also enjoy making my own whipped cream, but was pressed for time last night.  Here is a recipe for whipped cream- it’s delicious!

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

2 Tb. powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

Using an electric hand mixer, beat the whipping cream and other ingredients in a bowl until stiff peaks form. Do not over mix.
