Heavenly Treat: Angel Food Cake

A true Angel Food cake is only leavened by eggs whites and requires only five ingredients plus some flavouring.   Homemade Angel Food may not be as tall, but it should still be light and airy and it will also have a superior taste to the boxed versions.  In fact, it tastes so good that my son thinks I should change the serving size on the recipe from eight to one to two servings!

How to Crown your Cookies: Royal Icing

Now when it comes to icings, I am all about the buttercream (check out my blog for my Swiss Meringue Buttercream Recipe).  While buttercream is great in a sandwich cookie or as a dip for sugar cookies, it is not optimal for decorating as it remains soft and will squish and smudge. For detailed decorating you need to use royal icing.  Royal icing is a simple mixture of egg whites, icing sugar and flavour that is easy to pipe with and dries hard so your cookies can be moved, stacked and stored without the risk of smearing.

I love homemade marshmallows!  Guests are always “wowed” by them, (although once they see how easy they are they may not be as impressed) and you can easily customize them with booze, fruit, nuts and chocolate.
