Recipe: Grilled Angel Food Cake

I had been hearing about grilled Angel food cake for a while and was dying to try it since Angel food cake has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid.  I decided 4th of July Weekend was the perfect time to try it with some festive berries.  I made this for my Mom and my best friend and we all loved it!  I was actually thinking for a party cutting the cake into bite sized pieces before grilling and putting them on toothpicks after they've cooled with the whipped cream as a 'dip' would be an adorable dessert. Whether you're staying in or going out this is definitely a fun summer treat and one that I highly recommend trying!

Angel Food Cake Cake Mix (I like Betty Crocker)
16 oz heavy cream
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
Washed assorted berries

-Mix Angel Food Cake Cake Mix and water according to directions on package.  Bake.
-When the cake is done baking allow to cool completely.
-While the cake is cooling pour heavy cream into a bowl and add sugar.  Using a hand mixer mix heavy cream and sugar mixture on high until stiff peaks form.  Place the whipped cream in refrigerator until ready to use.
-Once the cake has cooled, cut into individual slices.
-Warm up grill to a low/medium heat.
-Place the cake pieces on the grill, grill on each side for a few minutes (how long really depends on your grill so keep a close eye on it) until golden brown.
-Serve with whipped cream and berries.

I have to say that I think this is my new favorite summer dessert!  What is your favorite dessert to eat during the summertime?
