There was a great angel food recipe in a back issue of Cook's Country magazine a couple months ago...I'll see if I can dig it up.

You can frost one though. Growing up my next door neighbor always us kids an angel food cake for our birthdays and iced it with 7 minute frosting.....you could use that and then top it with some white or dark chocolate dipped strawberries...maybe even a spinkle of coconut if he likes it....or you can ice it in whipped cream too!

Can you cover it in strawberry extract flavored poured fondant (to keep it fresh) and yield a surface that can be decorated:

Could also have a bottom border of dipped or tuxedo strawberries:

My Mom always made us a traditional angel food cake that was partially hollowed out and filled with strawberries & whipped cream with whipped cream frosting... She served it semi-frozen, so it was like eating strawberry ice cream. Yum!!! icon_biggrin.gif
