October 10th is National Angel Food Cake Decorating Day
you're looking for something to do today then get ready for some
creative sweetness because it's National Angel Food Cake Decorating
Day! You can have your cake and decorate it too! Let's get
right into celebrating National Angel Food Cake Decorating Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Well, it's actually two holidays that I felt needed to be
combined into one. Today is both National Angel Food Cake Day and
National Cake Decorating Day. And a lot of people actually do enjoy
angel food cake but for others it's pretty dull, so why not add
something to it, right? If you already have a bunch of people that like
angel food cake then, by throwing some sweetness on top of it, you can
probably get even more people to like it. And some people love a nicely
decorated cake, while others just love decorating them so this
combination of holidays really strikes a chord with many people today.
Now to make an angel food cake you're going to probably want a
tube pan on hand, which is one of those pans with a tube down the
center. Then you'll whip up some egg whites until they're stiff and
then you toss in other ingredients like flour and cream of tartar. What
you'll end up with is a sponge cake which is light in color and is said
to be the food of angels.
But then you have to add some kind of
flavor to it as you start decorating, and you really have a lot of
options here. You could drizzle some kind of glaze over top of it or
even chocolate sauce if you want. You can frost it like a normal cake
or just slap some whipped cream all over it. Then you're welcome to
sprinkle it with any tasty treat you want or you can even add some
fruit. I think the angels would be proud of you today!
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, you have a couple
options when it comes to the angel food cake... you can either make one
yourself or you can just go to a local bakery and pick one up. It's all
up to you and you should base your decision on if you care how fresh it
is and if you care about the ingredients in it. Homemade may be the
better option in both cases, but it will take some time and you might
mess it up. But once you have decided on how the food of angels
is going to make its way into your house, you're going to need to get
some cake decorating supplies! So what are you going to pop on top? Do
you want a fruity glaze with actual chunks of fruit in it? Do you want
to step it up and drizzle some white and milk chocolate on it? Do you
want to add even more of an angelic look and spray some whipped cream
on it? You could even sprinkle it with crushed up chunks of your
favorite candy bar too. But do you see that hole in the center?
Wouldn't it be pretty awesome if you filled that up with something so
that at the end of every slice there was a little bonus at the end?
What if you filled it up with some ready to eat cheesecake filling? Or
what about mixing up some fruit and jello, filling up that hole and
then letting it set up in your fridge? Or just pump that hole full of
whipped topping and call it a day! Have a great day and enjoy
dining like an angel!
