    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    This is more of a method of decorating rather than a recipe, sort of. You could certainly make your angel food cake from scratch (and of course, they are MUCH better), but when you're getting ready for a party, any short-cut is appreciated, as is keeping costs down. Idea is from a children's party cookbook from the library. The passive time includes cooling and baking times and the cake can even be made the day ahead.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (18 ounce) angel food cake mix
    • 1 1/4 cups water
    • 1 teaspoon fresh grated lemon zest or 1 teaspoon orange zest
    • 6 -8 drops food coloring (you will need 3 colors)
    • 1 cup canned rich and creamy vanilla frosting
    • 12 -15 square fruit decorative candies (I used Starburst)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Move the oven rack to the lowest position. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. (Do not grease or flour your tube pan and do not substitute a fluted Bundt pan).
    2. 2
      In a large bowl, beat the cake mix, water, and lemon/orange peel on low for 30 seconds and medium for 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Divide the batter evenly among three small bowls.
    4. 4
      Gently fold in 6-8 drops of food coloring in each, being careful not to deflate mix.
    5. 5
      Layer the batters in a 10-inch tube pan (anything smaller will overflow).
    6. 6
      Using the end of a wooden spoon, poke a few holes around the cake to "tie-dye" it. (The best way I found to do this is to stick the spoon handle straight down and pull it straight up.).
    7. 7
      Bake 37-47 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the cracks feel dry.
    8. 8
      Don't underbake.
    9. 9
      Immediately turn the pan upside down on a bottle (something glass, like a soy sauce bottle or a wine bottle) to cool.
    10. 10
      Leave to cool for 2 hours.
    11. 11
      Run a knife around the edges to release and place on the serving platter.
    12. 12
      Spoon 1/2 the frosting into a microwavable bowl and microwave for about 15 seconds or until frosting can be drizzled.
    13. 13
      Drizzle over cake.
    14. 14
      Place remaining frosting in a sandwich baggie and snip just enough of the corner (or use a writing tip) to make a VERY VERY thin line.
    15. 15
      Pipe a ribbon and bow on each candy square to look like a present.
    16. 16
      Arrange on top of the cake.
    17. 17
      Store loosely covered at room temperature.
