CHOCOLATE TWEED ANGEL FOOD CAKE
This weeks heavenly cake baker project was the Chocolate Tweed Angel Food Cake. It is your basic angel food cake with unsweetened chocolate folded into the batter before baking. The cake is then cut into 3 layers and filled and frosted with whipped cream. Rose suggested we put bittersweet chocolate and ground almonds into the whipped cream and then stud it with chocolate chips. I decided to frost it with plain whipped cream and decorate it with chocolate vermicelle because I think it made a more attractive presentation.
In my opinion as well as my husbands this cake was just OK. If I ever made it again I think I might add some orange zest to the batter and use bittersweet chocolate instead of the unsweetened. A little espresso powder might be nice too.
