Reviews forAngel Food Cake With Caramel Sauce
"Certainly didn't taste bad but for me it just wasn't worth the work."
"LOve this dessert. It is rich-but you can also substiute the cararmel sauce with a fruit sauce which make it not as rich tasting. I will definitely make it again."
"It sounded good but WAY too rich!! Not something I would make again. Neither DH or I were impressed. Looks pretty but there are recipes out there that can be this pretty taste better. Sorry."
