Tinted Angel Cake

Now, I don't want you to think Libby missed out on having her own birthday cake. My mom was kind enough to bake her this cake, which was most definitely fit for a princess!

The original directions from Midwest Living magazine say to top the cake with curls of white chocolate. Obviously, that's not MSPI-friendly. You could just leave them off, or try something else, like coconut or sprinkles.

Tinted Angel Cake

1 16-oz. pkg. MSPI-friendly angel food cake mix, plus the ingredients needed to mix the batter
3/4 tsp. Kool-Aid tropical punch, pink lemonade, black cherry or your favorite flavor unsweetened soft drink mix
4 cups powdered sugar
3 tbsp. hot water
1/4 tsp. Kool-Aid unsweetened soft drink mix

In a large mixing bowl, combine angel food cake mix and 3/4 teaspoon Kool-Aid mix. Mix, bake and cool the cake according to package directions.

In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar, hot water and 1/4 teaspoon Kool-Aid mix. If necessary, add additional water, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make icing of drizzling consistency. Drizzle icing over cake.
