            I don't get why i would need this special cake pan. Couldn't i just do it in a normal one without the tube?

                        Could you make Angelfood cake not in a regular cake form with a removable bottom? Never saw that particular form here in Germany 🤔

                          the first time I watched this it kind of puzzled me that she seemed to favour the strawberries, but after the pop tart video it's now Clear that these are harries berries and super special. yes I watch these videos multiple times.

                                  Claire is using my mom's tube pan. Not sure who made it, but my mom's is well over 50 years old.

                                          I wonder if it would be possible to make the meringue with tore bought egg whites (the ones that come in a half and half container). I made Swiss meringue buttercream once using them and it was an epic fail. I wasn't sure if it was poor technique or if it was the store bought whites.

                                            Do desserts really have a date? I feel like the whole "angel food cake is from the 90s" is kind of in their head.

                                              Would it not work in a bunt pan, or like a loaf pan? I realize it wont come out crazy clean but other than that is there a reason to buy a tube pan?

                                                  Tube pans can be found in great numbers at your local Goodwill or other thrift store. Go rescue one and make some cake!

                                                    thanks a lot for getting me to spend 50 dollars on a proper tin, jk but seriously I wish I saw this video sooner, my family has always had one of those non stick pans and when I tried to make angel food cakes they always fell and turned dense. I love angel food cakes and I'm so excited to start baking them again!

                                                        Claire would never have to come and ask if I wanted to try her food because I would already be standing there waiting for her to finish plating it.
