Does angel food cake bake up okay as cupcakes? Any tips on this?
I am also not sure about frosting it. IMO angel food cake is pretty sweet and is best served with fruit, seems that buttercream may be too much. If you have thoughts or experience on this I appreciate it.
I have made angelfood cupcakes on several oaccaions as it is my daughters favorite. I haven't tried them from a mix so I can't help you there. I just googled "angelfood cupcake recipes" and got several nice ones.
I make this recipe in 2 loaf pans, it should work as cupcakes. It's a little less delicate than a modern recipe.
