Strawberry Angel Food Cake for a crowd ( serves 25) !

 This is the cake that makes enough for 25 people & it is GREAT for large events! Take one to a pot luck dinner or any picnic & you will have an empty pan to take home!


This is the cake recipe cut in 1/2 and as you can see it makes an impressive dessert too! JUST EYE POPPING & DELICIOUS!

2 Boxes of  Duncan Hines Angel Food cake mix
red food coloring as desired.
1 Large DEEP aluminum pan
Prepare 1 box of cake mix as directed. Pour into pan. Mix 2nd box mix but add as much of the red food coloring as you like to get as pink or red as you wish. Pour this batter over first batter & then marble the pink batter through the white batter. even the batter & bake cake according to package directions.

3 quarts of strawberries
2 bags of frozen strawberries
3 cups water
1 cup sugar ( for glaze)
3 Heaping TBS cornstarch
1/3 cup cold water
1 tsp lemon juice
dash of salt
red food coloring as needed.
Clean & slice fresh berries but keep out 3 of the prettiest berries to decorate the top of the cake. Place frozen berries in large saucepan with the water & lemon juice. Bring to a simmer & add the sugar. Stir & cook until sugar is dissolved. Stir cornstarch into 1/3 cup of cold water until smooth. Stir into bubbling berry mixture. Add the dash of salt. Stir until thick & bubbling. If you need more cornstarch mixture add more but always stir it in cold water first so you do not get lumps. It depends on the berries & how juicy or not juicy they are as to if you need more thickening or not. This will get thicker as it cools but it should not be runny. Now stir in enough red food coloring so you have a nice strawberry red color. Cook until the glaze has a clear look & no longer cloudy. Remove from heat. You will now need to sieve the berries from the glaze. Place a fine colander or a sieve if you have one over a large bowl & let the glaze drip through. Discard the berries from the glaze. Now stir the fresh prepared berries into the glaze. Chill well. Once the cake is cool & glaze is chilled you may prepare the frosting. I WILL GIVE YOU A LITTLE SECRET HERE! IF YOU DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR MAKING THIS WONDERFUL GLAZE & I PREFER IT OVER ANY THING ELSE, just buy a tub of store bought strawberry glaze usually found in the chilled section of your supermarket produce section. Use it just as if you had made the glaze. The taste will not be as wonderful BUT still a superb dessert!

2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup water
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
4 unbeaten egg whites
dash of salt
1 tsp real vanilla
Combine sugar, water, cream of tartar & salt in sauce pan. Bring to a boil stirring the whole time. Once boiling & sugar is dissolved, SLOWLY pour over the egg whites that are in a LARGE DEEP bowl. Beat on medium low until all the sugar syrup is poured & then beat on high until frosting is glossy & stiff peaks form, this takes about 7 minutes. Beat in vanilla.

NOW spoon berries in glaze over cake surface. Spoon frosting over berries , swirling the top for decoration. Place the 3 pretty berries in center of cake & you have a DELICIOUS REFRESHING & VERY PRETTY cake for a crowd. You may EASILY cut this recipe in 1/2 & make one angel food cake as you normally would in a tube pan. Fill center hole with the berries in glaze & top cake with frosting. Just cut all ingredients in 1/2 in each step!
