From Kitchenaid, this recipe can be done in the microwave, instead of on top of a hot stove, and it makes the most wonderful fluffy frosting that is Fat Free. Not too sweet, it's perfect for angel food cake portions that then have fresh fruit spooned over them.



I start with an angel food cake mix and that bakes up enormously tall, at least 6 inches tall, and boy! Is it ever yummy!

Fluffy KitchenAid Frosting

Yield: frosting for two (9-inch) layers. (but who makes layers of Angel Food??)

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 egg whites
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Place sugar, cream of tartar, salt, water, and corn syrup in saucepan (or microwave bowl). Stir over medium heat (or cook on High) until sugar is completely dissolved, forming a syrup.

Place egg whites in bowl. Attach bowl and wire whip to mixer. Turn to speed 10 and whip until whites begin to hold shape, about 45 seconds.

Continuing on speed 10, slowly pour hot syrup into egg whites in a fine stream, taking about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.

Add vanilla and continue whipping about 5 minutes or until frosting loses gloss and stands in stiff peaks.

Frost cake immediately.

you wouldn't have to bake the cake in layers
(i don't bake angel food anyway, i buy those  Grin)
but you could split it in half to make two layers
and put the frosting in there
--if the frosting is good enough
i'll come up with a way to put more of it on!!!

I don't make the angel food cake from scratch, but I DO use a cake mix for a shortcut, and it is SO much better than store bought.

I suspect that if I were to cut the (very tall) cake into layers, I would be tempted to spread a fruit spread between the layers, and put the super fluffy frosting all over the OUTSIDE.
