Star Spangled Angel Food Cake Recipe
  • Bake cake according to package directions or purchase a ready made cake from your local bakery.
  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, salt, and vanilla until smooth.
  • In a small bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
  • With a spatula, lightly coat the cake with a thin layer of frosting. This layer will act as a glue to keep all of the crumbs together and on the cake.
  • Place cake in freezer for approximately 15 minutes, or until the first layer of frosting sets.
  • Generously apply the second layer of frosting. This will be the decorative layer. The crumbs will not show through since they have been set into the first layer.
  • Wipe with a damp paper towel and remove the stems of four ripe strawberries. Cut the strawberries into thin slices. Approximately four slices per strawberry.
  • Arrange three to four slices into a flower or star pattern on the top of the frosted cake.
  • Place two to three washed and dried blueberries into the center of the strawberry stars.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • The fruit can be arranged in different ways and still achieve a patriotic effect.
