Strawberry Angel Food Cake Jars!

Welcome back! Where have you been? I kid, I kid! Once again, it's super stupid crazy around these parts. Between The CWS, Ava Kate's much anticipated arrival and huge projects happening around the house, no time for computer time! Oh and work has been super busy.

I seriously can not wait to show you all what happened to our house this week. Big difference! I can't show you until tomorrow, as they are still here and chipping away! 

What I can show you is, these adorable and super yummy Strawberry Angel Food Cake Jars! So good! I made these for a few friend for a Memorial Day cookout and they were such a hit, I think I'll make them again for The 4th of July! They are super easy to make and very transportable. You can also make them ahead of time and let them chill in the fridge.

Strawberry Angel Food Cake Jars


 1, 7 inch angel food cake
6 cups of sliced strawberries (2 lbs)
1 (2 cups) pint of heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup powdered sugar
6, 12-oz wide-mouthed mason jars


Slice angel food cake into 2″ cubes then divide cubes in half. Divide each half into 6 portions then place 1 portion into the bottom of each mason jar. Top with 1/2 cup sliced strawberries and a dollop (2-3 Tablespoons) of homemade whipped cream then repeat with remaining ingredients.

For the homemade whipped cream: place the clean bowl of an electric mixer, or a large mixing bowl, into the freezer for 10 minutes. Fit the mixer with the whipping attachment then add whipping cream and vanilla to the chilled bowl. Whip the mixture on medium speed while gradually adding the powdered sugar then increase the speed to high and whip until cream can hold it’s shape, 2-3 minutes (do not over whip.) Refrigerate until ready to use.

Let me know what you think! See you tomorrow for lots of house updates!
