Mini Angel Cakes With Berry Syrup

Using Store-Bought Angel Cake

Every food store has some sort of bakery where you can purchase a pre-made cake. Some may look better than others but regardless, they are usually plain and somehow you can always tell that they’re not homemade.

I bought this angel cake from our local food store’s bakery last week just to try it out and could NOT eat it!

There was nothing wrong with it but I must have forgotten how dry angel cake can be.

Did you know that there is no BUTTER in angel cake!?

I guess I can’t have high expectations from a butter-less cake…so I thought to myself..maybe if I spread a little butter on a slice……..okay that’s gross but it definitely needed something!

I had some leftover strawberries and blueberries in the fridge and I decided to make a syrupy sauce that my poor parched slices could drink up.

Steps For My Mini Angel Cakes

Mini Angel Cakes With Berry Syrup

I threw the berries, sugar, lemon zest and cornstarch (to make it syrupy) into a small saucepan and cooked them down for about 5 minutes. Mini Angel Cakes With Berry Syrup

You can use any berries you have on hand frozen or fresh!

Then cut the cake into slices. If you want something cute, try using a round cutter like I did here. It looks neater too!

Finally, whip up the topping right before you’re ready to serve.

The trick to turning this dry cake into a moist bite of heaven is letting the berry syrup soak into the cake for a few minutes. So don’t rush serving these! Let them do their thing and your guests will thank you.

A fancy-shmancy dessert will be ready in no time!

Recipe Notes

Party Tips*

*If you're using frozen, you do not need water!

-Pipe the whipped topping out using a piping bag with a star tip to make this look fancier.

-You can use a cookie cutter to cut the slice into any shape you wish.

-Mint adds some pretty color and goes well with the berries!

-You can make the sauce a few days ahead of time and store in the fridge!
