Angel-Food Cake with Strawberries and Cream

A slice of angel food cake is adorned with fresh strawberries and whipped cream applied with a pastry bag, for an easy-to-prepare, elegant dessert. This angel food cake was store-bought, as it is challenging to produce at home. Serve strawberries-and-cream on any sort of vanilla or white cake to create a brilliant ending to luncheon or dinner.
