Strawberry Angel Food Dessert
I made this today with store bought (frozen pound cake - 2 of them) to take to a pool party. I made it as is with store bought Marie's strawberry glaze and the only thing I changed was doubleing the strawberries. It was delicious and everyone loved it! Next time I will triple the strawberries. I cut the pound cake into cubes and small rectangles in fear of the cake getting too mushy, and I'm glad I did. It was literaly like eating strawberry shortcake. I couldn't find a trifle dish, so used a glass bowl with straight sides. It looked very nice. Next time (if I have more time),I might try making my own glaze and/or pound cake. But honestly, it's really good as is and I got a lot of compliments even though everyone knew it was all store bought. :) I do recommend layering, and cutting pieces instead of crumbling. Oh, I didn't use all of the whipped cream - as it's just a personal preference (but used 3/4 of it) and only 1/2 of the glaze.
Update: 5/27/14: Have made this twice now. Exactly as the recipe states. And the second most recent time, I made everything from scratch, homemade poundcake, homemade whipped cream, homemade glaze (all recipes found on this site). I got rave reviews both times. When you make it as the recipe states, everyone knows you just threw store bought ingredients together but still raves about it. Making everything from scratch is really really good, but SOO much more time consuming. I don't think you can go wrong either way.
