  • 1 and ½ cups whipping cream
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar (confectioner’s sugar)
  • 1 lb. package of strawberries (about 24), hulled
  • 6 skewers
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 12 oz. Angel Food Cake (store-bought or homemade)
  • Fresh basil or mint leaves for garnish (optional)


  1. Pour the whipping cream into a medium bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer.
  2. Use the stand mixer or egg beater at medium speed to whip the cream for 2-3 minutes. Add the lemon zest and the powdered sugar.
  3. Whip until soft peaks form, 4-6 minutes more. Refrigerate until serving.
  4. Prepare grill for direct cooking over medium heat. Cut angel food cake into 6 wedges.
  5. Thread 4 strawberries onto each skewer.
  6. Drizzle each skewer of strawberries with 1 teaspoon of honey. Use a brush or fingers to spread it around and coat berries.
  7. Transfer berry skewers and angel food cake to the grill. Grill on one side until grill marks appear, 1-2 minutes. Flip and grill until grill marks appear on the other side, 1-2 minutes more. Remove from grill.
  8. Serve each slice of angel food cake with a skewer of grilled strawberries and about ½ cup of whipped cream.
  9. Garnish with basil or mint leaves, if desired.
