Happy Birthday my Love!
For my husband’s birthday I made him one of his favorites desserts and made it look awesome with very little effort.
Angel Food Cake with Berries & Fresh Whipped Cream Made Easy
Angel Food Cake: Store bought or you make your own. Although, when buying pre-made make sure it’s fresh and doesn’t have artificial flavors and preservatives.
Berries of Choice: Washed and Sliced
1-2 Tablespoons of Sugar in the Raw
Heavy Cream (pint)
Powered Sugar (1 – 2 cups)
Vanilla Paste (1-2 tsp)
1. Wash all berries and slice Strawberries. Place in a bowl, sprinkle with sugar and mix to combine. Set aside.
2. Slice angel food cake and arrange on plate or platter
3. Make Whipped Cream: in a stand up mixing bowl add heavy cream and about 1 cup of powered sugar, mix on low and then put on high until cream thickens a bit. Taste and add powered sugar as desired. Add about 1-2 tsp vanilla paste and continue to mix until desired consistency, adding more sugar if needed. (note: I really don’t measure this and just throw it in and mix 🙂
4. Pour berries over angel food cake, add whipped cream and if desired, add a candle on top and sing Happy Birthday!
Regarding the picture: Platter I used is actually a dip platter with 6 individual bowls with a center round bowl. It worked out perfectly for the 6 of us who ate this. Plus the middle was left over for the birthday boy.
This is also a great dessert for Memorial Day or 4th of July.
