Christmas Angel Cake Recipe

For some stupid reason I volunteered to make some cakes for Molly’s school fayre last week. I enjoy baking but I know to do it properly I have to wait for all the children to go to bed so it isn’t as much fun. It’s strange baking on my own. The downside is I have to break my own eggs which I do only slightly better than my daughter. The plus side is I get to lick the spoon myself and not share.

Anyway I decided to make an angel cake using my recipe from last month but this time with more festive colours. Instead of yellow and pink layers I made green and red ones. This would also work well as a traffic light cake for a child’s birthday. I didn’t use the almond essence in this recipe due to nut allergies, however it does make it all Christmassy.
