This is a recipe that I found in a cooking magazine, and I had been searching and searching for one just like this one ever since a customer where I worked was shopping for strawberries and angel food cake and I got really curious, and asked what she was going to make with it. She described this really decadent dessert, and it had all the ingredients described above, and I said that's it!!. So I am sharing my find and hope you love it.
