Strawberry Sparkle Cake

My niece reminded of this recipe when I saw her a few weeks ago. It was always a favorite 'birthday cake request' but it's deliciously cool at any time!  


  • 1 angel food cake 
  • Filling
  • 1 pkg. (3 oz.) strawberry flavored gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 can frozen strawberries (1 pkg. (1 lb.) frozen sliced strawberries)
  • Frosting
  • 1 pt. whipping cream (I've also used Cool Whip)
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Whole strawberries (optional)


Mix gelatin with 1 C boiling water stir till dissolved. Add the frozen strawberries. 

Once the cake has cooled, put it large side down on a cake plate.

  • Cut a one inch layer from the top of cake and set aside. Cut around cake one inch from outer edge to one inch from bottom. Cut around cake one inch from inner edge to one inch from bottom. Gently remove the section of cake between the cuts, tearing it into small pieces.
  • Fold pieces into strawberry mixture and pour it into cake shell.
  • Place cake layer on top.
  • Whip cream. Add sugar and vanilla. Spread over top and sides of cake. Decorate with whole strawberries, if desired. Refrigerate until served, at least one hour. Slice with a serrated knife.
