Doesn't this look delicious?
Well, let me tell you, it was. :)
Seven months ago I shared my 50 before 50 list, and #37 on said list is "bake an angel food cake from scratch." This past weekend I was able to accomplish this goal thanks to my dear stepmom while she and my papa were here for a visit.
The hardest part was s-l-o-w-l-y folding the flour/sugar combination into the whipped egg whites so that they didn't deflate.
The best part was the joy of learning this skill -- of having it passed down to me and hearing about all the delicious goodies her mom used to bake for her (from scratch, of course) while we baked together. Thanks, M, for the lovely afternoon and weekend. Love you. :)
