1 (18.25 ounce) package
angel food cake mix
heavy whipping cream
unsweetened cocoa powder
fresh strawberries, halved
It was delicious! I made it for my boyfriend's birthday and everyone loved it! Finished the cake about 4 hours before serving and turned out wonderful. I replaced angel food cake with white cake. The frosting is very light and not too sweet (just the way I like it). The only problem was the cocoa mixed with strawberries made the cake look an ugly brown - not very pretty. I made it the second time, without the cocoa. Instead of scooping out the middle, I made 2 8-inch cakes and layered them on top of the other with frosting & strawberries in the middle. And instead of MIXING the frosting with strawberries, I just frosted the cake and placed the strawberries on top of it and around it. Some rasberries and mint leaves in the middle to garnish. The second time was the charm!
I enjoyed the strawberries in the middle and on top of the cake, but the frosting was not good. There wasn't enough flavor to it.
Due to the fact that I was having Easter dinner for fourteen people, I did a lot of cheating with this recipe. To make my life a bit easier, I bought an angel food cake from the grocery store and used chocolate flavored cool whip. I also mascerated my strawberries and filled the center hole with them for an even prettier presentation. Light, refreshing and a perfect dessert after a big dinner. Thank you so much Carole!
This was delicious. Here's a variation..something a bit different; Alternate pieces of angel food cake and sliced strawberries on skewers and serve with dip such as whipped creme and/or chocolate. People jump on these at my parties!
I took out the cocoa, and added a little vanilla to my whipping cream instead. I also just put my strawberries, which I sliced, on top instead of folding them in to the whipping cream. I also added some blueberries for color on the outside of the cake. Looked and tasted great.
Love it! This was a hit both at work and at home. Next time though I'm going to experiment a little. I'd like it just a bit sweeter and would like to taste more chocolate.
I just made this for my daughter's birthday and everyone loved it. She wants me to bake another one for her and her friends. The fact that it is not too sweet was a hit!
absolutely loved this recipe, have had many requests from other to make again!
