Angel Food Cupcakes #TasteCreations

Even though Easter is over, these darling cupcakes can be decorated in a variety of styles.  These are super simple yet very elegant and look amazing on a dessert table! I've topped these with jelly bird eggs, but imagine them with whipped topping and fresh strawberries!

Angel food cake is in the foam cake category.  Simply stated, the cake doesn't use any rising agents like baking powder. It relies on the egg whites and cream of tartar to stabilize the cake.  I love the texture of foam cakes, do you?

Here's what is cooking in the other Taste Creation bloggers' kitchens!
