I knew I had to make his favorite cake to make his day special.
It's called Angel Food Waldorf:
Bake 1 white angel food cake as directed. Place cake upside down. Slice off entire top of cake about 1 inch down from outer edge and 1 inch from edge of hole- leaving "walls" on each side. With a spoon remove cake within cuts- being careful to leave a base of cake 1 inch thick.
In chilled bowl- beat 3 cups whipping cream, 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar, 3/4 c. cocoa and 1/4 tsp. salt until stiff.
Spoon into cake cavity. Press mixture firmly into cavity to avoid holes in cut slices. Replace top of cake and press gently. Frost cake with remaining whipped cream mixture.
Chill 4 hours or until set.
Here are some pictures from our Birthday celebration.
