The holidays are officially over, and that means the next big one is coming up – Valentine’s Day! I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this holiday. Yes, Christmas and New Years are definitely faves but when it comes to celebrating and sprinkling joy for those you love, I’m all about this holiday. Who’s with me?! Raise your hand if you love baking for Valentine’s Day! You and me both sister! But every year I feel like I go way overboard, and I wanted to be sure I had something super easy up my sleeve for 2020. Not everything you make has to be made from scratch, all the time, and sometimes I have to stop and tell myself this. Every dessert is made with love, and will be delicious just the same. I am so tickled pink to share this cake with you!

This cake seriously takes just minutes to put together! It’s SO easy! Take your store-bought angel food cake and cut it in half. Mix together your red food coloring and cool whip for a fun pink color. Be sure to just use a little bit at a time and mix until you get your desired color!
Spread the cool whip on the cake, and layer on the strawberries. Put the other half of the cake on top, and then cover the whole cake with a layer of cool whip. Top with sprinkles and you’re ready to serve in just minutes!
