I know what you mean...it s the new year and I really try to swear off sweets as I do over indulge at Christmas...always.... so now it is back on the band wagon. It is also a nice recipe to keep for a last minute idea when having company and also for Summer as you can purchase the cake ready made and no heat in the kitchen!!
Let me know how you like it!!

Oh thank you, Doreen. I will give it a try for sure..it sounds fabulous! As I said..I love angel food cake with any fillings or drizzles... :) I can handle something that doesn't taste like alcohol...so this will be fine! I will be sure to let you know when I do!
