After I tasted this dessert at a party, a friend shared the recipe. It originally called for pound cake...and I decided to lighten it up by substituting angel food. The result was this delicious light torte. —Kathy Martinez of Tucson, Arizona

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 27, 2013

I've made this cake several tiimes and it always gets rave reviews and requests to make it again. It is the perfect dessert on a warm summer day. It is much easier to make than what I thought it would be. With a little practice, the piped frosting even looked terrific. (I'm not very experienced with piping icing!) The suggestion of making it into a sheet cake is appealing and something I'd like to try.

This is soooo good! I used vanilla pudding mix (not cheesecake); took it to a ladies' group & received rave reviews as well as requests for the recipe. Very light dessert.
