Recently I asked my husband what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday; he said angel food. I will definitely never win any type of baking award, so I was a bit hesitant of making an angel food cake, the egg whites, confectioner’s sugar, beating until the peaks are just right.
However, not wanting to disappoint the man on his birthday I found a recipe and went to work. It was actually much easier than I had anticipated and even tasted good. He later told me it was the first time anyone had made him an angel food cake that didn’t come out of a box. Poor guy. Oh well, glad my first attempt was a success.
Mom, don’t look. (it’s whipped cream out of a can, she always made it from scratch)
