This past weekend, my old roommate, Joelf (who moved out to go to the Dominican Republic for 2 months), came to visit in order to celebrate my current roommate's, Annmarie's, birthday. Her birthday party was also her Bon Voyage party as she is moving to New Zealand on Thursday. Hmm. Why have my roommates felt the need to move to foreign countries after living with me?
Anyhoots, with Joelf being here for only a few days and Annmarie being here for only a few days more, this weekend was jam packed with errands and social calls and one awesome birthday/goodbye party (more on that in my next post). I really wanted to try this cake, especially with more people around to eat it, so last night I busted out the cake and this morning I did the same with the frosting and put it all together in time for us to have it with brunch. We were all in a hurry today, as Joelf needed to get to the train station in time, so my usual care in putting a cake together was thrown out the window.
Oh well, it still tasted good!
the way i swirled the frosting makes it look like it's circling the drain
as you can see I didn't bother trying to level the cake
Cake innards. It looks a bit like whole wheat bread, doesn't it?
This is how we chose to serve the cake. Mmmm, bacon.
The verdict? The angel food cake was deliciously tender, moist, and not too sweet. I think I like the Chocolate Angel Food Cake from The Cake Bible better, but this is a close second. The frosting was also delicious, but all in all it was a bit too rich. I would have preferred to skip layering the cake and just frosted it, or served the whipped cream frosting on the side. Or skipping the frosting altogether. I really want to fill and frost a chocolate cake with this frosting. Not that we won't eat this cake exactly as it is, 'cause we have, and we will.
