Valentine’s Day Angel Food Cake & Strawberry Skewers

valentine's strawberry skewers

My girls just love strawberries. They can gobble them up all year long. And isn’t a treat that they are shaped just like little red hearts? They make for the perfect treat for Valentine’s Day.

Pair strawberries with Angel food cake and it’s like a little slice of heaven. Each time I make an Angel Food cake (which isn’t very often), I always question myself “why don’t I make this more often”. And that is echoed by my two girls. I have no answer for this. Note to self: Make more Angel Food Cake!

Before you dive into a treat of strawberries and Angel Food Cake, let’s make this a little more fun. Let’s make this a portable treat and drizzle chocolate over it. YES!!!

SIMPLE INGREDIENTS – SIMPLE ASSEMBLY

You need 4 things to complete these tasty skewers

  • Skewers
  • Angel Food Cake
  • Strawberries
  • Chocolate

Valentine’s dessert

Can it get any easier? Simply make or buy your Angel Food. I can’t resist making one when I have the time. I’m glad I look at the directions as I tend to forget it requires 3 hours to completely cool. That could really throw timing off if you tend to take these to an evening party and start too late in the day.

Next, you have to let the cake cool. Everybody cools theirs on a Kahlúa bottle, right?

Isn’t there just something dreamy and magical about Angel Food Cake?

Once your cake is cool, turn upside down and start making your slices. You can get up to four cubes when you slice a nice thick cut. I may or may not eat a few imperfect pieces. Quality control.

So for this set of skewers, I used a pre-made Angel Food Cake from the store. It came in a loaf style and was super easy to cut and assemble. This is a great time saver if you don’t have time to make an Angel Food cake and let it cool (up to 3 hours).

Another tip if you would like a smaller serving, use a smaller piece like a flat popsicle stick.  It’s about half the size and doesn’t require as many strawberries or pieces of angel food cake.

Check out this tip!  Dip a whisk into the melted chocolate the “shake” over your treat while moving hand back and forth and you will end up with lovely drizzles.  Be sure to do this over wax paper not your pretty platter.  The paper will catch all the drizzles, not your platter!

Enjoy these at your next get together!
