Let’s Go Bake a Cake
A Strawberry Angel Food Cake
Let’s go bake a cake...a Strawberry Angel Food Cake or Strawberry Shortcake. 

Cake Ingredients:

1 box Betty Crocker’s Angel Food Cake mix
3 cups quartered strawberries plus some whole ones for around base of the cake.
2 pints whipped cream
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Angel Food cubes after removing from the cake

Icing Ingredients:

1 8oz cream cheese
16 oz powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
Garnish: red and white chocolate curls


Prepare the cake according to the package. When cooled cut 3/4” to 1” off the top. Be sure to cut it evenly.

Now cut out an 1” of the inside for the filling. Don’t go all the way to the bottom of the cake.

Cut the removed cake into cubes and put them into a bowl. In another bowl beat the whipped cream and powdered sugar. Combine 1-2 cups of the whipped cream to the strawberries. Spoon the strawberry mixture into the cake and return the cake’s top.

To prepare the icing just combine all the ingredients until smooth. With an offset spatula frost the cake and garnish with the whole strawberries and red and white chocolate curls. Yum Yum!

Preheat oven to 350F. In a bowl crumble the flour, salt, sugar and shortening. Add in the milk and beaten egg. Mix together then spread evenly into a greased 8x8 cake pan.
