Strawberry Cream Cheese Angel Food Cake

This is an example of it doesn't have to be beautiful to taste good.   Sometimes cake is beautiful and isn't all that good.  Especially when fondant is used and not buttercream.  I absolutely do not like the taste or texture of fondant.  What do you all think?  

Hey, I don't like to waste my calories on anything that isn't yummy.  And this was yummy.

I found my inspiration for this angel food cake on Pinterest.  The recipe called for a store-bought cake with strawberry cream cheese frosting and strawberries.  The directions were kind of sketchy, so I just did my own thing.

I bought an angel food cake from the Kroger bakery.  Why?  Because I really like them and so does Cudjoe.   They taste better than the box angel food cakes, and I wanted to make something quick and beautiful.  So much for beautiful.  Unfortunately, when I cut the angel food cake in half, the top half broke in half, and after I spread the frosting and preserves on the bottom layer and on top and then added the fresh strawberries, the top slid right off!   I call this a semi-Pinterest fail.  What can I say?  It happens . . . but it tasted delicious; so delicious that there was only one piece left this morning!

I will definitely make this again and tweak it so that it looks as good as it tastes.
