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.

Strawberries and Cream

Simply Elegant: Strawberries and Whipped Cream

Everybody loves strawberries with whipped cream, a classic dessert.  Whip fresh cream with powdered confectioners’ sugar according to your taste, or with your choice of alternate sweetener. I used a pastry-bag to pipe the cream in the photo, but you may also put it into a plastic zip-bag with a corner snipped off to squeeze out the wonderful stuff. This gorgeous red-and-white combination may be served alone or set atop a piece of poundcake, or the American favourite, shortcake. Another variation is to drench the fresh strawberries in a reduction of sweetened pomegranate juice for more colour and flavour. Of course, you could serve your strawberries and cream as my Cornish grandfather preferred– just use cream straight from the bottle, pour it over your fresh strawberries, and sprinkle it all with a bit of sugar.
