This is a basic instruction for making my favorite cake " Angel Food cake".
Step 1: Things You Will Need.
First get all of your ingredients together. and pre-heat oven to 325
you will need 1 cup of cake flour
1 1/2 cups of sugar
10 eggs(at room temperature)

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/3 cup confectioner"s sugar,for top of cake
Step 2: Mix Cake Flour
Mix cake flour 1 cup with 1/2 cup of sugar in a bowl,put aside.
Step 3: Step 3-egg White
Separate egg whites from yolk ,it helps to do one egg at a time in a different bowl,in case you break the yolk.
you do not want yolk in your whites.
then throw away yolks.
In a mixing bowl add the egg whites from 10 eggs and beat on high speed,until they are stiff.
Slowly add the 1 1/4 teaspoons of cream of tartar and 1/4 teaspoon of salt continue beating for about one minute..
Step 4: Add Rest of Sugar
Add rest of sugar 1 cup ,slowly while still mixing egg whites .
then remove bowl from mixer and stir in your 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract.
Step 5: Add Flour Mix
Now get your cake flour 1cup that you mixed with 1/2 cup of sugar.
Slowly in 1/2 cup lots fold into egg white mix.
Step 6: Put in Tube Cake Pan
Put mix into a un-greased 10 tube pan or bunt cake pan
smooth top .
Put in pre-heated oven at 325 in middle of oven.
It will take 50 minutes to 55 minutes.
Take cake out of oven when it is nicely browned on top.
Step 7: Turn Cooked Cake Up-side Down
Turn cooked cake up-side down on wire rack .
If cake does not un-mold use a spatula around the edges to loosen it.
Let cake cool for 45 minutes to one hour.
Step 8: Sift Over Cake
Now lightly sift over your cake the confectioners sugar.
You can put a stencil over cake top first to make design,or just use all confectioners sugar on top.
