MMMM another one I'm going to try. I think I will macerate the strawberries though. There's nothing better than macerated strawberries on top of cake with whipped cream...the juice running down the side...YUM!!! So good!! I wonder if you could use angel food cake for this one instead of yellow cake.

I know Reddiwip is trying to promote itself, but there is a much easier version and they are yummy. Take a box of cake mix, white, yellow, strawberry, etc.and mix with a box of angel food cake mix in a container with a top. When you want a cake or more, take 3 tbls of mix in a cup and mix with two tbls of water. Microwave one minute. Take it out and put on plateand serve with your strawberries and ReddiWip. You could make any number of these little cakes ahead of time. Keep the rest of the mix stored until you want another 1 minute cake.

Loved it!! My kids loved it and it was very easy! There was hardly any prep time and hardly any mess. Also there is no huge cake sitting around tempting me.
