READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Lorac

An easy way to turn an ordinary cake into a decadent dessert. Purchase a ready made angel food cake and you won't even have to turn your oven on. Prep time includes chilling.

A wonderful icing. It was so simple to make and what I really loved was the quantity. Next time, I'll split my cake layers and make 6 because there's plenty to use for filling and I love thin layers in my cakes. So often, though, an icing recipe just doesn't yield enough to accomplish this. Thanks for posting.
