National Angel Food Cake Day

While we can now buy them ready-made or make cakes from mixes, Mom always made her cakes from scratch. (But, of course!) And she made a lot of them. One of her most in-demand cakes for various birthdays was one she called her Pink Cake.

The name came from the pink color that mashed berries gave the freshly whipped cream. That cream filled the horizontal layer she’d cut halfway through the cake and frosted the entire outside. Mom carefully placed a fruit juice glass in the center of the cake with some water inside to keep fresh whatever flowers she placed in the middle.

Oh, yes! Always a super hit!
