  2. I saw this recipe over the weekend...it was on a sales sheet with a coupon for the angel food cake mix (if memory serves). Angel Food Cake with Pineapple Lush I believe it was called. The image looked delicious.

  3. Hi Nikki,
    I encourage you to make it. Although it is delicious, this cake tastes even better-- just a 'slice of heaven.' I like making it, and love eating it, more. Although calories, of course, at least not as much guilt when eating it, but not as sinful, as chocolate usually is. :)

    Nice to hear from you and thanks for stopping by Take care,
    ~Anthony

  5. Hi Anthony, I am so proud of you. It seems you are not only great at your career, but you can bake too. Check my blog for home-made angel food cake. You will never go back to the box again.

  6. Hi Rosie,
    Thanks for your nice comments, you are very kind and thoughtful. For the longest time, before I made this angel food cake with pineapple recipe, I made, "home-made angel food cake" from scratch. It was the only way, and of course, the only way that I knew how, because that's the way I learned from my mom. Then, when this recipe came along, it was so easy with the "boxed version, but I must add, for this recipe. I was so used to making home-made, that I actually feel "guilty" everytime I Make this recipe and don't make it myself-- and cheat with the box. You are right, that there is nothing like home-made angel food cake from scratch, and not from the box. I absolutely love, your "pocketbook." I can't stop raving about it to friends and others. You are so very skilled and talented--THAT, is what I call a real gift, and girl-- you put me to shame there :) Although I can bake, you do it soooooooo much better and with your cake decorating techniques, whcih are absolutely--awesome!!

    By the way, I want to congratulate you upon your 41 year marriage-- to the same man. How wonderful. (My parents were married 53 years, before my dad passed.) Keep up the great work and glad you like teaching your cake decorating classes.

    Best regards,
    ~Anthony
