Angel food cake likely got its name from its featherweight texture, its pale white color and that undeniably light & airy taste. What makes it so different from a typical white cake, is it omits egg yolk  and instead uses only whipped egg whites, and no butter. What you do with it from there doesn’t have to start and end at the classic bundt cake preparation either. Here’s some creative ways you can ascend to higher levels with your angel food caking game.
