But, I didn't. I immediately started over. I knew what I did wrong, and I will admit what it was, because I love you guys. I don't want you to make my same mistakes.  Plus, no matter how hard I tried-- I was not happy with my finished pictures.  So, I never published this recipe. After careful debate with myself,  I decided it would be worth poking fun at myself--to show that I do have cooking/baking failures. I just don't share them with you. Until now.  So, please keep on reading to learn what not to do, and what you should do. Thank you./divdiv style="text-align: left;"br //divdiv style="text-align: left;"So, what is a Daffodil Cake? It's part angel food cake, and part "chiffon" cake (with egg yolks and orange flavor mixed in).  If made correctly, according to a href="https://www.cookscountry.com/recipes/5942-daffodil-cake"ibCook's Country Magazine (April 2010)/b/i/a, "iLike the flower it's named for, this orange-kissed angel food cake is scented and sweet, with golden yellow and pale orange hues/i."  That sounds like a lovely spring cake! The only angel food cakes I've ever made, comes from a box of cake mix.  I wanted to make my own, from scratch./divdiv style="text-align: left;"br //divdiv style="text-align: left;"So, we begin by processing sugar and cake flour to be fine and "powdery".  My food processor works great for this-- however I will forewarn you that billows of fine flour and sugar will look like smoke  coming out of the top! /divdiv style="text-align: left;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-AfraQmgMgo/U24cHu6UbI/AAAAAAAASkQ/rJysrzDMNss/s1600/orange+chiffon+cake+1C.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="341" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-AfraQmgMgo/U24cHu6UbI/AAAAAAAASkQ/rJysrzDMNss/s1600/orange+chiffon+cake+1C.jpg" width="400" //a/divdiv style="text-align: center;"Well, that was easy./divdiv style="text-align: center;"/diva href="http://www.afeastfortheeyes.net/2014/05/daffodil-cake-angel-food-cake-and-my.html#more"Read more »/adiv class="blogger-post-footer"JUMP to my blog site to view and print these recipes, please!/div
