Christmas Brickle Angel food Cake- Gnome Setting

Need a light, delicious, easy dessert for holiday entertaining?  Make this Brickle Cream Angel Food Cake.  It begins with a Duncan Hines Cake Mix!  Yelp! A cake mix.  The mix has two packets inside the box, one with dry ingredients and one powdered egg whites.

After baking the cake in an un-greased angel food cake pan and cooling, frost the cake with fresh whipped cream. Because the cake is pure white and light in texture, whipped cream makes the perfect frosting.

What Makes this Cake Special?

It’s the decoration. Fresh whipped cream is piped on top of the tall cake with a St. Honore piping tip # 882 or #883 depending on how large you want the cream design. I will be honest, piping with this tip is a bit tricky but once you get the technique down you will love it.  Tips on how to pipe with this tip can be found here.  This tip can be ordered on line.

Piping Tip St. Honore #228

Sprinkle the finished frosted cake with heath bar toffee/brickle pieces. Store the finished cake in the refrigerator for best results. Whipped Cream needs to stay chilled.
