Peppermint Angel Food Cake
You might look at my recipe below and think, “Kaylynn, are you kidding me?” I mean, it’s an angel food cake with peppermint whipped cream. Not a whole lot to it, but this recipe has some sentimental value to it. I worked with a very dear friend at Hillcrest – she made it a few years ago and I fell in LOVE with it. Mostly, I loved that it wasn’t super difficult. And again, I love peppermint.
