Unshortened Cakes (Angel Food Cake)

IMG_3917

First day of cake week and angel food is our first creation.

Students learn about the high quality characteristics via Prezi and we make create one using 9 egg whites. Our lesson continues trying different ways to separate the eggs according to a youtube via Lindsey Bakes.

Finally after hanging on a bottle and cooling, the students are ready to slice the cake with a bread knife in a sawing motion as described on the test.

We also made yummy lemon curd using the yolks the next day. In the future, I think I’ll have them make it on the same day while the cake is baking so the curd can be chilled.
