You will buy an angelfood cake and tear it into pieces or keep it whole. The top half of each step is for when you tear the angelfood cake into individual pieces. The paragraph right below the top step is there if you intend to keep the cake whole. If one step applies to both ways of making the cake, you will only see that step.

How to Make Peppermint Angel Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Note: In the Ingredients list, the first set of measurements is for the cake if you are going to tear it into individual pieces. The second set of measurements is if you intend to keep the cake whole (i.e., 4-8 large candy canes, crushed. You will use 4 candy canes if you are going to tear the cake into pieces and 8 candy canes if you are going to keep the cake whole).
  2. Reserve 1 cup crushed candy canes for the top of the cake.

    Reserve 3 cups crushed candy canes for the top and sides of the cake.
  3. Beat the 2 cups of whipping cream and 1/4 cup sugar in a chilled bowl until you reach stiff peaks.

    Beat the 4 cups of whipping cream and the 1/2 cup sugar in a chilled bowl until you reach stiff peaks.
  4. Fold the remaining candy canes into the whipped cream.
  5. Tear the angelfood cake into one-inch pieces.

    Keep the angelfood cake whole and place on a serving dish.
  6. Mix the cake pieces and the whipped cream together.

    Frost the whole cake with the whipped cream/candy cane mixture.
  7. Lightly PAM a 13x9-inch pan.

    Skip this step.
  8. Lightly press the torn cake into the pan.

    Skip this step.
  9. Sprinkle the remaining crushed candy canes on top of the cake.

    Sprinkle the remaining crushed candy canes on the top and press the rest of the candy canes into the side of the cake.

    If you run out of candy canes, crush more and use them as needed.
  10. Freeze until firm.

    Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
