Citrus Striped Angel Cake
We've trimmed down the ingredient list, calories and fat in this carefree, guilt-free delightful dessert.
- 1 package (16 ounces) angel food cake mix
- 1 package (0.3 ounce) sugar-free orange gelatin
- 3/4 cup boiling water
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 2 cups thawed, frozen light whipped topping
- 1 orange (optional)
- 1/2 pint raspberries (optional)
- Fresh mint leaves (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Pour batter into ungreased Rectangular Baker, spreading evenly. Bake on center rack in oven 35-40 minutes or until top is golden brown and cracks feel dry and not stick. (Cake should be firm to the touch; do not underbake.) Carefully turn Baker upside down onto Stackable Cooling Rack; cool 45 minutes. (Do not remove cake from Baker.)
Using Nylon Fork or metal skewer, poke holes in cake about 1 1/2 inches deep and 1/2 inch apart.
Place gelatin in Small Batter Bowl. Pour boiling water into gelatin; stir about 2 minutes or until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Slowly pour gelatin evenly over cake. Refrigerate 3 hours.
Frost cake with whipped topping using Large Spreader. Cut into squares. Garnish each serving with orange slice, orange zest, raspberries and mint leaves, if desired.

To make holes in cake 1 1/2 inches deep, wrap a piece of transparent tape around tines of the Nylon Fork, 1 1/2 inches from ends of tines. Insert fork in cake just to the edge of the tape.
For a pretty garnish, use the Zester/Scorer to zest the orange before cutting it into slices. Starting at the stem end, firmly draw the Zester/Scorer down along the skin of the orange to create long strips of peel. Repeat around whole orange, then cut orange crosswise into 8 slices. Cut slices in half.
To cut easily through angel food cake, use a gentle sawing motion with the Bread Knife.
