    Cooking to Perfection's Note:

    This low-fat angle food cake is not your typical tasteless cake. The orange custard and the coconut add much-needed flavor to the cake. This makes a great summer treat that is very easy to assemble.

      This cake was a huge hit at a friend's birthday dinner! We love moist, filled cakes so I took the liberty of doubling the pudding ingredients. The cake was generously filled and with almost a cup left over, I folded the remaining pudding mixture into the whipped topping to frost the cake. Yum!!! Much better than pain Cool Whip if you ask me. I also sprinkled 2 or 3 tbs. of an orange syrup over each angel layer; to make it I boiled 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup sugar and when it cooled added 1 tsp. orange extract and 2 1/2 tbs. of rum. Thanks for posting this outstanding recipe!!

      This cake is so delicious! I found it when our 2 year old son couldn't eat any fat following a surgery. His birthday was coming up and he had to have a cake!! Well, he's 17 years old now, been eating anything he wants since he was 4, and STILL asks for this cake on his birthday!

      I just helped a friend make this cake for his girlfriend's birthday (he found it in a Weight Watcher's cookbook, but the skim milk called for was 1 3/4 cups). It was easy to make and was so luscious looking and delicious that it was hard to believe it was "legal"! Highy recommended even if you aren't concerned with watching your weight!
