angel food cakes

naming my blog was an easy task since my favorite cake is angel food. the light airy texture and lightly sweet taste is always appropriate for any celebration. i have several angel food cake pans and last week, i made a heart cake and used martha stewart’s seven minute frosting to ice the top in a shell design. angel food cake doesn’t require icing, and often i just sprinkle with powdered sugar to make the top look white.

the traditional cake pans with feet work best, as i have smaller bundt pans that can be used, but often present a challenge when removing the cakes.
angel food can be flavored with almond, lemon, orange, or even strawberry extracts. using the flavors gives the angel food another dimension that i enjoy even more.
