To make it easy, we used a store bought angel food cake. To make it special, the hubby macerated the strawberries with his “famous” ingredients. This is really only famous to our immediate family – but everyone always loves the end result! Macerating the strawberries (or any fruit) is done in a liquid and helps to break them down, soften, and release their juices. You can use juice, wine, rum, even balsamic vinegar for berries!
You’ll certainly want to give this recipe a try – it is super easy, delicious, and a perfect dessert for summer.
