Birthday Angel Food Cake

This has been our traditional family birthday cake for as long as I can remember. We used to make the angel food cake and I still would if my Whole Foods didn’t sell them. I now just buy the cake, split it in the middle and frost it. I have gotten a little fancy adding the berries. I have also heard of people making this same frosting and adding chopped up heath bar bits! Sometimes I omit the cocoa and add citrus zest and garnish the cake with the fruit. This is the easiest dessert that I often make for my cake lover husband.

Angel Food Cake Frosting

2 cups heavy cream

1 cup sugar (I sometimes use organic powdered sugar as it adds more stabilization to the frosting)

4 T. Drostes cocoa (or any other dutch processed cocoa)

1 t. vanilla

Beat all ingredients together until stiff, or a good consistency to frost.

Keep refrigerated.
