Okay – confession time. I really don’t have much in the way of a recipe. I mean, how much of a recipe do you need? Store bought Angle Food Cake, store-bought glaze. Whipped cream – okay maybe a recipe for whipped cream would be a good idea. Strawberries? Fresh is best.
Whenever possible, visit a strawberry farm for the best, picked that day to die for delicious berries. The earlier in the day, the better. Imagine dew kissed berries picked by the first golden lights of a new day. Yum! Berries so fresh, so luscious, so naturally sweet, there’s no need to add sugar.
The real motivation behind today’s post is the picture of the cake smothered in fresh berries and topped with whipped cream. It was just too yummy pretty to pass up. With the 4th of July just around the corner, this super easy throw it together dessert would be great!
