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!
