    I know Reddiwip is trying to promote itself, but there is a much easier version and they are yummy. Take a box of cake mix, white, yellow, strawberry, etc.and mix with a box of angel food cake mix in a container with a top. When you want a cake or more, take 3 tbls of mix in a cup and mix with two tbls of water. Microwave one minute. Take it out and put on plateand serve with your strawberries and ReddiWip. You could make any number of these little cakes ahead of time. Keep the rest of the mix stored until you want another 1 minute cake.

    I would have never thought that you could make this in your microwave, but it turned out pretty good. The kids really liked it, I would make it again.
