Easy Peasy Strawberry Cake

It's inevitable. You are having guests over  and you have been working your butt off cleaning the house, grocery shopping, and making dinner. When you realize you don't have a dessert! And you barely have time to take a shower and get ready. No worries, just do what I do. Text your husband as he's walking out the door from work (men love that) and beg him to pick up the ingredients for my Easy Peasy Strawberry Cake.

Strawberry Cake

It's light and airy and takes only a few minutes to make. No baking, no cake pans, just spread and forget it! Growing up my favorite thing in all the world was strawberries (i've grown up now I like chocolate too). So for my birthday my mom would make a strawberry cake that was so delicious. For years I thought this cake was time consuming. But she shared her secret with me and I, dear readers love ya'll so much that I thought I'd share and make your lives a little easier.

Easy Peasy Strawberry Cake

Three Ingredients


1 Angel Food Cake
1 16 oz. Container of Whipped Cream
1 1 lb container of Frozen Sliced Strawberries


1. Open up your Angel Food Cake and put it on a pretty cake plate

2. Drain the strawberry juice from the container. You don't want to make the whip cream too runny. 

3. Dump the thawed strawberries  and whipped cream in a bowl. No need for daintiness here. Just Dump! You are pressed for time! Mix it up well. 

4. Slop that mixture on the angel food cake. You can make it as pretty as you can  if you want but you still have to take that shower. Hurry up!

5. If you have some fresh strawberries in the fridge garnish your cake with a few and find a place to shove the easiest cake you'll ever make in the fridge.
