{à table: angle food cake - lemon glaze}

It wouldn't be Friday without a little recipe or food inspiration from me!  As long I can remember, I've had Angel Food Cake for my birthday.  It's by far my favorite! So, what's more appropriate than a simple and sweet dessert for this week?

{The key to this below photo is to not look too hard.  My camera phone doesn't do the taste justice.}
To dress up the cake, I made a lemon glaze and topped it with some strawberries we had in the fridge. Mister was a bit worried that it wouldn't "satisfy"; however, after taking the first bite, he was convinced and after taking the last bite, he was happy that he didn't feel like he indulged too much.  Because let's be honest...cake isn't that friendly to a diet. 

This dessert was light, refreshing and delish!  A perfect idea for Mother's Day.  And, if you don't have time to bake a cake from scratch - just follow in Mister's footsteps.  Buy the cake and make a glaze.

Glaze -
1 C confectioner's sugar
4 Tbl fresh lemon juice
*mix together with a whisk until smooth

Drizzle glaze over cake and top with your favorite fruit (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries...)

{You can make any variation to the glaze by substituting organge juice, lime juice...and then adding fruit that would compliment!}

à table !
