This is the angel food cake recipe I use. It is more dense than a traditional angel food so it holds up better under icing, and decor.

4 1/2 cups cake flour
4 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups boiling water
16 egg whites
2 tablespoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift cake flour, sugar, and salt three times then stir in the boiling water. Let cool.
Beat egg whites, cream of tartar, baking powder, vanilla and almond flavorings until stiff peaks form. Fold into the flour mixture and pour batter into ungreased baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
Cool cake inverted in pan, laying a tea towel underneath the cake to absorb the steam.
Frost once the cake is cooled.
