Layered Strawberry Shortcake

Yesterday was Jon's birthday and I made his favorite dessert, Strawberry Shortcake. I decided to do it a little differently and layer it into a trifle bowl. This recipe is amazingly easy to make and assemble and I promise that you will receive 'ooh's and ahhh's' over it.

Layered Strawberry Shortcake

1 Store bought Angel Food Cake
2 lbs Strawberries
2 Tsp Granulated Sugar
1 Pint Heavy Whipping Cream
2 TBSP Powdered Sugar

Wash strawberries, remove stems and slice into a bowl. Add granulated sugar and stir well. Pour whipping cream into a metal bowl and mix until nearly stiff. Add powdered sugar and mix until stiff. Cut up Angel Food cake into cubes. To assemble dish:

In a trifle bowl layer in order, approximately 2 cups Angel Food cake, 1/2 the strawberries (reserve a few for the top) and 1/2 the whipped cream. Repeat layer one more time. Top with a few sliced strawberries. Serves 10.

    I'm a big fan of using awesome serving pieces. It makes such a difference.

    I happen to love strawberry shortcake.
    I'll try it.
