Angel Strawberry Dessert

This angel dessert is a wonderful treat when fresh strawberries are readily available. Every time I make this pretty strawberry angel food cake, someone asks for the recipe. —Theresa Mathis, Tucker, Georgia

    I had to buy more strawberries. I chose to use pound cake and I also had to buy two. Very good.

    I only added 1/2 cup sugar but wouldn’t add any next time. No need. Excellent otherwise.
