So I offered to make a cake for my cousin & grandma's surprise birthday party. It ended up being two, no problem. But then my aunt got all picky about it, saying my cousin wanted the whipped cream frosting (which I've never practiced with). So I went out and bought the Bettercream (at $6 a pop!) to practice. I figured I better get used to picky customers if I want to sell cakes someday (I've only finished Level 1 classes). Then my aunts thought that my grandma ought to have an angel food cake since she's diabetic (not that I didn't see a box of chocolates and who knows what else sugar items when I was there last). Do they know that angel food cake has about as much sugar per serving as a box cake? Anyway, I'm probably going to decorate that in Bettercream or Wilson's Whipped Icing Mix (which still has sugar in it!). Anyone decorated an angel food cake before in either of these mediums or bc? What were the results? Any precautions that I should take?
