Angel Cake and Jello

What does Angel cake have to do with Jello? Find out...

Years ago this is one of the staple cakes we used to make. I don’t know if you could call it “vintage” but it’s definitely not new for us.
First you start by making an angel food cake either by scratch or with a box angel cake. I looked up the recipes for making the angel food cake by scratch and it called for 12 egg whites! So, I took a trip to Stop and Shop and they had ONE angel food cake mix left. Whew!
You pour the angel food package mix in the bowl, add water, and beat for ONE minute. Easy. Easy. Easy.
Pour it into one of these pans... I have one of those pans where  the middle comes out.


After it’s baked... It had to be cooled upside down in order for the cake to hold its height.

I took a knife and went all around the edge of the pan and then pulled up on the center of the pan and this is what I had... Look how high it is. Beautiful. Out of a box! Imagine.

I cut a groove all around the top of the cake.

Like this: There is the bowl of Jello – all made up ahead of time according to directions on the Jello box and cooled overnight. I used a regular box of Jello, not the large one. The top of the angel cake is on the plate in the back right. That gets put right back on after we fill the groove we made with Jello.

Put the extra pieces of cake we took off the top of the cake, back on.

Cover the entire cake with Cool Whip.

Now it needs a little embellishment, doesn’t it? I really wanted jelly beans on top for Easter but jelly beans bleed and I didn’t want that to happen so I took candy melts and put them in the walnut grinder or is it a cheese grinder? Whatever. I ground up some candy melts for the top. It made little tiny curls.. cute. I put the red candy melts around the edge, too.

When I cut into it, I messed up the first piece so I had to eat it. Then I messed up the SECOND piece. I ate that one, too.

See the jello?

Here’s the third piece of cake – it came out perfectly. Thankfully. I was getting REALLY full...
