Hello friends– The big news around our family is two babies to arrive in November!! Our two beautiful nieces are expecting just about a week apart– so exciting!! So last Sunday there was a family shower, all gathered around to bring gifts for the little ones and to offer blessings and hugs.
And of course there was cake. This couldn’t be simpler– It involves an angel food cake mix and some thin frosting. plus a few strawberries. It’s sweet and fruity and pink. Just about right for celebrating new babies on the way…
STRAWBERRY TOPPED ANGEL FOOD CAKE
1 Angel Food Cake Mix*
2 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
2 oz. butter, room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
8 strawberries cut to tiny bits
Garnish: fresh strawberries
To make the cake, following the directions on the package. Cool the cake completely upside down perched on a bottle before taking it from the pan and adding the frosting.
Beat the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and cut strawberries with an electric mixer for a couple minutes until it blends into a creamy glaze. Pour over the cooled cake. Top with fresh berries!
*the only brand of Angel Food cake I can find here is Betty Crocker. Please don’t buy an angel food cake premade– there’s a huge difference and making one from a mix takes less than 10 minutes (+baking time).
And here’s the new Moms! Sam with Grandma Lo and the sweet clown doll Grandma knit for the baby. And Andrea with her Paul and a new quilted baby blanket. Such a fun day!

Wonderful news!! Angel food cake is the best and looks so delicious!
Hi Lisa– my husband thinks it’s the best too (and was disappointed there were no leftovers). and yes– we’re excited– the babies are due in a couple weeks!
I love angel food but usually just top with fruit. The icing here would be so simple though, and I know the cream cheese would add a lot. Such a great twist, Rhonda. And 2 babies on the way is so exciting!

Yum, that cake looks melt-in-your-mouth delicious. My husband just walked by my computer screen while I was gazing at it. He said, ohhh, are you going to make that? Ha, not tonight! Such fun to have two more babies coming. I hope they’ll grow up to be good friends (and cousins). The homemade clown doll is adorable, and the quilt, too!
