When I made Aunt Mary’s Angel Food Cake, I had a definite inspiration, and it was all about a photo. It made me think about images and how easily they can be seared into our consciousness in a heartbeat, so intensely that it seems they can never be forgotten. Riots, shootings, protests. Senseless death. It can all be a bit much. Overwhelming. Positive images can do the same thing, and I think we need more of them. (And maybe more cake, too!)
I just recently made my Aunt Mary’s Angel Food Cake to take over to a dinner party and wanted to make a Mascarpone Filling. It’s the perfect thing when whipping cream seems a little light and boring and anything else can seem too heavy.
