Angel Food Cake with Strawberry Creme Icing

Happy Tuesday!  I want to share a super simple dessert idea with you today.  I love this recipe because it comes together so fast, takes very little ingredients and tastes amazing -- all good things in my book!

easy cake recipe

I belong to a women's group at my church and once a year we take a turn hosting the refreshment portion of the monthly meeting.  My month was April and I knew I wanted something that looked like Spring and I could whip up in the short time from when I got home from work and when the meeting started.  The size of the group is around 24, so that needed to be a factor also.  This angel food cake recipe immediately came to mind!

To make my life even easier, I decided to buy premade angel food cakes.  Honestly, the ones I purchase tastes every bit as good as the ones I make, so the decision to buy them was an easy one.

Here's the ingredients for the icing:

Frozen package of strawberries in juice
Container of Cool Whip
 (I used regular, but if you want to lighten up on the calories you could use fat free)
Package of sugar free jello

Let the strawberries thaw in the refrigerator over night.

Strain the berries, reserving the juice.

If your berries are cut in large pieces, chop them into smaller ones.

Mix the berries with the Cool Whip.  Dump in about 1/2 the package of sugar free jello.  Stir.

Add a small amount of the reserved juice to make the mixture more spreadable.

Slather the Cool Whip mixture over the cake.  

Cut and serve.

I love how this cake screams light and delicious with it's bright pink color!  The icing complements the angel food cake perfectly.  I made three cakes and it literally took me less than twenty minutes to do all three of them.  To sweeten the deal even more, the ladies RAVED about it.  Just can't beat that!
