Angel Strawberry Cream Dream

I made up this goofy name to describe this variation on angel food cake. It's easy to throw together and the look will impress your guests. It also takes light and sweet like a dream. Enjoy!

1 round full size angel food cake
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 8 oz tubs cool whip topping (you can use light)
3 T additional sweetened condensed milk
3-4 cups chopped strawberries

You can make or purchase an angel food cake. I tried making my own, but I burnt it and had to run out and buy one, but my husbands grandma makes them all the time and highly recommends the Western Family brand of angel food cake mix.

Chop and wash all strawberries and place in a medium mixing bowl. Pour can of sweetened condensed milk and 1/2 tub (you can use more or less cool whip depending on the taste/consistency you like) of cool whip into strawberries and mix well. The consistency should be thick but still runny. Spoon this mixture into center hole of angel food cake until it is level with the top of the cake. (You will have some mixture left over)
Add 3 additional T of sweetened condensed milk to other 8 oz of cool whip topping. Stir well. Spread over all exposed surfaces of the cake like frosting. Cover the hole with strawberry filling with frosting as well. Garnish with 4 strawberries halved. Refridgerate or serve immediately. Use extra strawberry mixture as a topping over sliced cake when serving.
