Wanda's Strawberry Spectacular Dessert

As the saying goes...LIFE IS SHORT...EAT DESSERT FIRST! 

You'll thank me for sharing this simple and scrumptious dessert with you! 


I took pictures as my sweet Alaska friend, 'Wanda Lou' (Her real name is Wanda Denise, but we gave her this nickname long ago and it stuck) made this fantastic dessert while we were in Spokane together, which was lots of fun, because it's rare that I ever get hands in my foodie pictures!

It was oh-so delicious!  I'm not overexaggerating when I made up the name. *-*

It goes together quickly and is delicious and always a winner!

THIS IS MUCH LIKE HAVING STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE IN A PAN! 

Tear the angel food cake into bite size pieces and place in 9" X 13" pan.



Mix softened cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk together
and drizzle over cake pieces...


These are the ingredients you will top the recipe with..


 STRAWBERRY SPECTACULAR DESSERT
(From The Better Baker & 'Wanda Lou')

1 baked angel food cake (large size, you'll need more than one small)
1 (8 ozs) box of Cream Cheese
1 (14 ozs) can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 (12 ozs) Large container Cool Whip
2 (10 ozs) containers frozen (sweetened) strawberries in their juice, thawed.
Enough fresh strawberries to decorate the top

Break angel food cake into bite size pieces into a 9" x 13" dish. Fill the pan nicely..not clear full (some cakes are smaller than others, so be sure you have enough)


Cream together cream cheese & sweetened condensed milk and drizzle  over the pieces of cake.


Pour thawed strawberries, juice and all, over the top, then
cover with Cool Whip - then top with fresh strawberries

You can imagine how good that looks dished up!  But we took it to a funeral dinner and I didn't take pictures there...so I guess you'll just have to try it to see for yourself!

YOU WON'T BE SORRY!!!

Does the cake get soggy? The flavors sound delicious, but I'm wondering about the consistency/texture...thinking of making this for Father's Day!
