History of Angel Food Cake

Angel Food cake is thought to be a takeoff of the Sponge Cake, Cornstarch Cake, Silver Cake, and/or Snow-drift Cake.

There are several theories on who originated this Angel Food Cake, also called ice cream cake (a Pennsylvania Dutch wedding cake).  It is felt that the abundance of cake molds in southeastern Pennsylvania, one of the major producer of cake molds, indicates that the angel food cake originated there in the early 1800s.
