Angel Food Cake... sort of.

The box says Fat Free... and it was too. Right up until the point where I slathered (love that word), it with white frosting - complete with rainbow chips. So Yummy.
I've learned that getting an angel food cake out of the pan (I should mention at this point that said cake is my 3rd attempt), requires a certain amount of patience, and some specialized equipment. As my pan was teflon coated and I didn't want to ruin it, I made due with a spatula. It sort of worked. The cake came out... or most of it anyway.
So... frosting an angel food cake... not so easy as it seems. I waited for the cake to cool and then applied said frosting. The frosting ripped the top of the cake off... but no worries, I glued it back on with more frosting.
Needless to say, not a stellar attempt, but edible. Hubby would rather the cake WITHOUT the frosting, and my co-workers would rather the frosting without the cake. So the end result was a happy medium really. I just love it when everything works out well in the end, don't you?

Have I told you yet that I'm so happy that you've returned to blogworld too? I've missed your wicked sense of humour (someone said that to me and I feel it is a really nice compliment).
Gosh, you've really taken up the follow-the-instructions-on-the-packet-and-hope-something-edible-comes-out-challenge haven't you? This one looks like things worked out. I assume this picture is taken before the frosting or after your co-workers got their hands on it. It's huge. Good work!

You never fail to make me laugh! But perhaps I need therapy too ;-) No... pretty sure we just have the same sense of humor.

Seriously, she bakes two cakes, following the instruction on the packages, and suddenly she has a cooking-blog? I read the nice Teflon person's comment and almost spit my coffee all over my computer. From laughing. You go girl!
