No more procrastination...that was my realization

I posted pictures in my baking photo album on facebook and I hadn't noticed how fast time has gone by. I had picture from January and February that I hadn't posted nor written about. Therefore, before we get to the more recent things I'm going to write about the baking experiences in order. If you knew me, you'd know that I like to have things neat and orderly so this fits.

My grandfather's birthday was January 27th. I believe he turned the big 79 and I always bring some goodies to my grandparents on their birthdays. I wanted it to be more on the healthy side but tasty as well of course.

I made him an angel food cake with real strawberries as the filling and sugar free whipped cream to top it off. I was going to make the angel cake from scratch but time was limited and I was working the day before so I settled for a box mix (I know...blasphemy!!) It was actually quite difficult to level and split the angel cake. It was so light and airy. However, in the end, even though it wasn't as nice underneath, the whipped cream hid any imperfection. I figured red royal icing would go well with the pure white of the whipped cream and it matched the strawberry decoration nicely. Using a paring knife I cut the strawberry and flared it out.

Needless to say it was a hit. Nutritious and delicious!
