Angel Food Cake
Monday, May 14, 2012. My eggs were expiring on that day so I tried to use up as many as I could.
This recipe used about 10 egg whites so it was great in getting decreasing the amount of eggs in my fridge!
The egg separator came in very handy for separating all these eggs!
Left: Stored the egg yolks in a container where I’ll use it for a different recipe.
Right: A ton of egg whites!
Egg whites whipped! "I’m really likin’ the way, you whip it whip it whip it!"
Decided to make them into cupcake as well!
Looks like the cake really held it’s shape exactly how I dumped it into the cupcake liners.
To use up more eggs, I made some meringue. I had a lot of fun piping it all!
Overall it came out kind of dry, but it was still alright! Not really my type of cake, but it was a good experience making it!
Got my recipe from allrecipes.
