Semi-Homemade Strawberry Surprise Shortcake

I know there have been quite a few posts over the past week or two about different recipes considering the Easter holiday.  Well, being "the baby" of the family, I have little responsibility when it comes to Easter dinner.  In fact, I didn't bring a thing this year.  However, when I do bring something I always aim for my Semi-Homemade Strawberry Surprise Shortcake.  This recipe actually came from a friend, but I have completely taken it as mine.  Here are the quick and easy steps...

Quick and easy ingredients: (1) strawberries, (2) Cool Whip, and (3) Pre-made Angel Food Cake.

Step 1: Slice the cake in half.

Step 2: Dig out a "moat" in the bottom half of the cake.

Step 3: Throw the leftover pieces of the cake into a bowl.

Step 4: Add half of the quartered strawberries and a scoop of Cool Whip to the bowl.

Step 5: Mix the three ingredients together (I use my hands).

Step 6: Fill the "moat" with the mixture.

Step 7: Put the top layer back on the cake.

Step 8: Using the Cool Whip, ice the cake.  I accidentally left my Cool Whip out too long...don't do that!

Step 9: Decorate with remaining strawberries.

Step 10: Stick the finished cake into the fridge so the Cool Whip will solidify again.  Your's shouldn't look this runny.  I got sidetracked and left the Cool Whip out, so it was a little runny.
