    Angel food cake is my favorite cake. I know so many who hate it but I love that it isn't a heavy cake, it doesn't need a bunch of frosting. It's perfect with macerated berries.

          Can you make this with store bought egg whites so you dont have to have all those left over egg yolks?

              If you use a copper bowl you can make a meringue w/o cream of tartar. It's super weird but I've done it before.

                          Maybe its because it is Oct 29th but I suddenly see Claire as the bride of Frankenstein, and Brad as Frankenstein.

                                My mother is in her 80s; as children, they were tasked with beating egg whites by hand. She still remembers how awful it was. "You were sent out onto the porch, with a saucer of egg whites, and you just had to keep going until they were whipped. Your arm would ache all day."

                                                I've become so conditioned by gourmet makes for things to go wrong for Claire that when she was flipping over the cake I expected it to all fall apart and we'd get a shot of her leaning on counter, head in her hands saying "We need to start over"

                                                    I read the title as "Angel makes food cake". Honestly, both titles fit.

                                                      Growing up angel food cake was always our birthday cake! Always iced with whipped cream- and sometimes the cake would be dyed a special color!
