It's Monday

Today is Monday, March 25, 2013. The storms seem to have settled down and the sun is shinning once again.  We still have a gentle breeze but NOTHING like what we have been experiencing over the weekend.  It tore up down town pretty good and from what I have heard a tornado too.  George said that the hail was actually coming through the hanger.  I can't imagine what it sounded like  being in that hanger with the hail hitting it.

Even with the power going in and out I was able to get the cake baked and the "Manly Set" finished. Two place mats, two pot holders and a mug rug.

So today I will work out in the yard later this afternoon to get the branches and whatever else has to be cleaned up.  When we have storms I think that the tress seem to be all over the yard. Can't work in the bamboo it is like a swamp down there, yuck.

So I thought I would share the strawberry filled angel food cake with you. Here is what you will need:
1     Angel Food Cake (baked)
1     cup powered sugar
1     tablespoon Vanilla
3     Pints clean sliced dry strawberries
1/2  Quart Heavy Whipping Cream (16 ounces)
        Strawberry Frosting either homemade or store bought

      Bake your angel food cake and cool well, can't use a warm cake for this, it will melt your filling.

Remove from pan and cut the top of the cake off and save.
Now every so gently cut the inside of the bottom half of the cake out leaving the bottom and sides. You are going to fill this with the filling.
Now whip the whipping cream until stiff, add the powered sugar and the vanilla.  Fold in the fresh sliced strawberries. Make sure that they are dry and not still wet from washing.

 Next fill the bottom with the filling. Don't over fill or the top won't fit right.

 Now that the filling is in place the top back on the filled bottom.

 Frost with either homemade or store bought strawberry frosting.
Keep in the frig until ready to serve. Slice and enjoy!

Everyone loves this cake and it is really east and quick to make.  I did try the cake batter fudge and well, I won't be making it again.  But, hey I am always willing to try something new once.

  1. My mouth is full of saliva! This looks so delicious and pretty! Thank you for checking up on me. I have been a bit absent from blogland but i am great! I am going to make some cookies now because i am craving something sweet after those pictures. Have a blessed week!

    1. I was just a tad bit worried that something might not be right. Just thought I would check on you. Going to make cookies this weekend. Super glad that you are doing well!

      Wishing you a productive week!


  2. Thank you. This is one of my favorite cakes. Looks delicious and easy to make. I will definitely try it. We've got the nasty weather out there today. I can hear it hitting the air conditioner. I love that sound when I don't have to go out in it.

    1. You can use one of those small rectangle angle food cakes at the store but I think I would cut the recipe for the filling into thirds. That is what I am going to have to do with just the three of us now. Or make the big one and share with neighbors. Enjoy your day off!


  3. yummy! And look at the size of those strawberries! WoW!
    I well remember the hail & storms we'd get when we lived in Louisiana. And the lightning. Not something I miss.
    Thanks for your opinion on the recipe. While it really sounded good, I just couldn't see it coming out like it was 'all that'! :0)

    1. No Jeanne that fudge wasn't all that, I would have rather added more powered sugar and a cup of peanut better and made peanut butter fudge. I don't care for these storms either and last night and tonight are back down to 34 degrees. ugh...



It was nice of you to take time out of your busy day to stop by. Blessings to you and your family! (((HUGS)))
