1 (8 oz.) bowl cool whip
Slice angel food cake through the center cutting the cake in half.  Clean and slice the strawberries and remove stems/leaves. (Save a few for decorating on top of cake.)  In bowl, mix the sliced strawberries and strawberry glaze together with a spoon and set aside.  In another bowl, mix together the Strawberry Jello powder and cool whip, (beat with mixer until well blended and divide this in half.)   On first half of cake spread half of the strawberries and glaze mixture and then spread half of cool whip and Jello powder mixture on top of that. Then take the other half the cake and place it over top and Spread the remaining half of the strawberries and glaze mixture on top and take the remaining cool whip and Jello powder mixture and spread it on top of the glaze mixture and around the sides of the whole cake.  Then place some Strawberries on top of cake and you may add some down the sides all around the cake too if you prefer.     
Strawberry Cake:
1 White Cake Mix
1 c Cooking Oil
1 pkg. Strawberry Gelatin
4 Eggs
½ c Strawberry Juice
1-½ tsp Red Food Coloring
Blend all ingredients in mixer at low speed. Beat for 3 minutes at medium speed. Pour into approximately 13x9 inch pan at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
2 c Confectioner Sugar
½ c Butter, softened
Pinch of Salt
Crushed Strawberries
Blend sugar, butter and salt with enough strawberries to obtain spreading consistency. Ice cooled cake.
Strawberry Soda Pop Cake:
1 Box Strawberry Cake Mix:  (Special Directions Required)
3 eggs
Oil:  (as required for cake mix) 
1 Bottle of Fanta ® strawberry soda pop:  (use soda pop in cake mix instead of water. See directions below)
2 Cartons Strawberries
2 Bowls Cool Whip
Mix cake mix “almost” as directed on the box, (except you substitute the same amount of water your cake mix requires for that same amount of strawberry soda pop instead), put 3 eggs in your mix (even if your cake mix says 2 eggs add 3 instead) and use the amount of oil your cake mix calls for as directed. Blend cake mix ingredients together, pour into a cake pan (size and type optional), and bake as directed on box. When cake is done, let it cool completely. Wash Strawberries well. Take one carton of strawberries and slice them in half and set aside. (Those are for decorating.) Take the other carton and dice them up in real tiny pieces and add 1 bowl of cool whip to those; mix well until all the strawberries are blended in with the cool whip.  If doing a Bundt style cake, slice cooled cake in half and on one the bottom slice spread tiny strawberries and cool whip mixture over top and then lay on the top layer of cake. Take 2nd bowl of cool whip and spread all over entire cake including sides. Then decorate the sides and top of cake with the sliced strawberry halves.  If doing a sheet cake you can spread on tiny strawberries and cool whip mixture on top of cake and decorate with sliced strawberries on top of that. If doing a round cake pan, divide batter in half, bake separately to form two layers of cake and spread on strawberries and cool whip as directed for the Bundt cake pan style.  The colder this cake gets the yummier. 
Toffee Brownies:
1 (17.6-ounce) package brownie mix with walnuts
Vegetable oil cooking spray
3 (6-ounce) candy bars with almonds and toffee chips (Recommended: Symphony brand)
Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions. Line a 13 by 9-inch cake pan with aluminum foil and spray with vegetable oil cooking spray. Spoon in half of the brownie batter and smooth with a spatula or the back of a spoon. Place the candy bars side by side on top of the batter. Cover with the remaining batter.  Bake according to package directions. Let cool completely, then lift from the pan using the edges of the foil. This makes it easy to cut the brownies into squares.
