    Annacia's Note:

    This light, spring-like cake is the perfect way to end a special Easter meal. If you are pressed for time, you could always make the cake a couple of days in advance, freeze it and simply add the frosting as it thaws.

    1. 1
      Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 C).
    2. 2
      Sift the flour onto a plate, then stir in the lemon zest and set aside.
    3. 3
      Put the egg whites, salt and cream of tartar into a large bowl and beat until stiff but moist-looking peaks form.
    4. 4
      Gradually add in the superfine sugar, a tablespoon at a time, and continue beating for 1 more minute.
    5. 5
      Gently fold in the flour mixture using a metal spoon and a swirling figure-of-eight motion.
    6. 6
      Pour into an 8-inch deep or 9-inch shallow nonstick angel food cake pan (there is no need to grease it first).
    7. 7
      Bake until the cake is well risen and golden and the top springs back when pressed with a fingertip, 25 to 30 minutes.
    8. 8
      Turn the cake, still in its pan, upside down onto a cooling rack and let cool.
    9. 9
      As it cools, it will fall out of the pan.
    10. 10
      To Make the Frosting:.

      Note: To crystallize flowers, buy a sachet of dried egg white and mix it as instructed. Let it cool, then brush the mixture over rose petals or viola, pansy or herb flowers. Dust lightly with a little superfine sugar, let dry for 30 minutes, then use to decorate the cake just before serving.
