I can have dessert!
This is so pretty. Perfect for hot summer days, perfect when you want something not too sweet and not too rich or heavy, it is just right!

How to Make Strawberries and Cream Angel Food Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Cake
    Mix cake according to box instructions and bake.
    When it has finished baking remove it from the oven and let it cool completely.
    Once cooled, cut the cake horizontally across the middle, creating a top and bottom half.
    Create a trench on both halves of the cake by scooping out the inside of the cake in a ring. Make sure you do not go through the bottom or the sides.
    Add the strawberry filling to the trenches and put the cake halves back together.
    Frost the cake with whipped cream.
    Garnish with fresh strawberries.
  2. Strawberry Filling
    Pour heavy cream into the bowl of your stand mixer. Set speed to high and whip the heavy cream until it becomes fluffy.
    Add strawberry jelly and continue to mix on high.
    Combine gelatin and water, letting the gelatin dissolved before adding the mixture to the whipped cream.
    Continue mixing until everything is thoroughly combined and the whipped cream is stiff.
  3. Frosting
    Pour heavy cream into the bowl of your stand mixer. Set speed to high and whip the heavy cream until it becomes fluffy.
    Add confectioner's sugar and vanilla and continue to mix on high.
    Combine gelatin and water, letting the gelatin dissolved before adding the mixture to the whipped cream.
    Continue mixing until everything is thoroughly combined and the whipped cream is stiff.
