Angel Food Cake

This is the most amazing gluten free Angel Food Cake. It is sightly heavier than the store bought variety, but has the weight, texture and taste of homemade Angle Food Cake. Anyone would be hard pressed to tell the difference between this and non-gluten free. It's that good. It's made by the Twisted Bakery. I made it to bring for the 4th of July for my family and it seemed to be a hit. Mum actually introduced me to it a while ago. It's wonderful. We topped it with strawberries, blue berries, and cool whip (yes I know, ready whip or homemade whip cream is best but it makes my stomach hurt). It made for a wonderfully patriotic looking dessert. Making it was super easy and fun. There are three packets for ingredients. All you need to add is egg whites and almond/vanilla extract. I had a good laugh over this because the recipe tells you which packet to add but not what is in the packet. I told everyone that there was no sugar in this cake, there was only packet B. It made us laugh. There is a lot of sugar however (as most cakes have) and I over indulged with two slices and paid for it shortly after; of course that could have been the mountain of cool whip I had as well. After dinner I was extremely dizzy and tired. The price we all must pay for over indulgence 'eh? Enjoy!
