  • 1 prepared angel food cake (8 to 10 ounces)
  • 4 ounces white baking chocolate
  • 4 cups heavy whipping cream, divided

In the chilled bowl, beat remaining heavy cream until soft peaks form. Gently fold two-thirds of whipped cream into white chocolate. Stir extract into remaining whipped cream.
