This is such an old time recipe--always a fave for birthdays, young and old alike, because it's so light tasting after a big meal. I usually make it with lemon pie filling, but this tastes even better! I actually would rather make the angel food from a mix as opposed to homemade--it's one of those instances where I find packaged is superior!

Made this for summer potluck and was a huge hit!! Perfect summer dessert! Sometimes I chop up the cake and layer ingredients for a trifle. Excellent this way as well!!
