I love to get creative with alcohol. I'm not a huge drinker, but I love rum cake, rum chata, and pretty much any sugary alcoholic item. So when I saw an angel food cake on sale at the store, I grabbed the strawberries and got to work experimenting with my liquor stash. Teehee.

I did feel a bit guilty so I saved the kids some regular fruit and cake- last time I made rum cake, my 2 year old grabbed his own plate and came up to me with the CUTEST face. Like "Cake please?" It was sooooo adorable and we gave him something else as a treat, but gosh did I feel guilty. I hate saying no when they ask so sweetly.

Supplies Supplies listed below may include affiliate links to the products.

  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1.25 c of sliced strawberries
  • 2 tbsp of liquor (plus some to pour on cake)
  • Store bought or handmade angel food cake
  • Whipped cream


Mix your strawberries, liquor, and sugar. Let sit in refrigerator for 1 hour. 

Take a slice of cake, pour liquor on it, then add strawberries and whipped cream.

I tried three types of liquor and they were all excellent. I tried Rum Chata, Bailey's Chocolate Cherry, and Bailey's Vanilla Cinnamon. I just labeled my bowls by chalk markers so I could keep track of which was which.
