Helpful hints

  • Purchase a baked angel food cake or make your own from a boxed mix or homemade recipe.
  • Substitute 1 pint fresh, sliced strawberries instead of frozen if desired.
  • Use dental floss to cut the angel food cake into layers. Anchor the floss into the top third of the cake and pull it through the cake on both sides to evenly cut the first layer, and then repeat with the second layer.
