The weather has been so nice this weekend. It is finally starting to feel like Spring. Yesterday I went for a nice run outside and Josh worked on our yard the entire day. He is prepping our backyard for a big garden. I can’t wait to grow our own vegetables and herbs. This is our first Spring as home owners. We really don’t know what we are doing when it comes to gardening, but we are hoping to acquire at least one green thumb:)

Angel food cake is one of my favorite cakes. Heck mom curses me every birthday when I ask for it.
I like the cupcake idea but once again I would eat them all. So good…..
These are beautiful and look so elegant Maria!
The weather varies here. For a few days, it’s sunny and in the 60s. Then it’s rainy and in the 40s. Then 60s and sunny, etc.
I tried growing a garden last year, but the squash failed. Then a rabbit ate one of my few jalapenos.
I don’t understand angel food cupcakes. I know with regular angel food cake, you have to let it set upside down. Why don’t the cupcakes collapse? Hmmm
You will be the best aunt ever. Just bake little Ramona lots of treats 😉
Angel food cake is such a weakness!! These look perfect for a springtime treat with the berries on top. Love it!
We had wonderful weather too. Good luck with your garden – I am planting tomatoes this year and I am hoping I don’t kill them.
The cupcakes look wonderful – light, fluffy and tasty.
looks amazing!! so jealous that your going to have a garden… I need one too 🙂 congrats on being an auntie!!!

We’re growing jalepenos and chili peppers! I forsee a lot of Mexican food in our future…
We had a great weekend here. The cupcakes looks great. Love the berry on top!
Its been awful here 🙁 It rains and shines…rains and shines. I cant wait for steady sunshine! But I dont care about the weather..I’m baking these soon 🙂
Angel Food Cake is delicious – I agree that it is perfect for spring! Especially since it is fat-free – great for those watching what they eat. Adding lemon sounds wonderful!
OOO I can’t wait to have a big garden!! These cupcakes look perfectly light and tender! And congrats to your brother and sister-in-law!
HA…I posted a very similar recipe over the weekend and the cupcakes were incredible. I love that you put a blackberry on the top and that cake server is so cute.
Loving the sun!!!! And those cupcakes!! I can’t wait to try them.
Two of my favorite things, lemon and angel food cake!! I will be trying these soon. The orange rolls and black bean salsa also look SO good!!
So cute. I’ve never seen an angel food cupcake before. I must try it out. I love cupcakes! I like the lemon zest.
Congrats on the new baby!

Oh i’m trying these for sure! I have so many frozen egg whites in my freezer from all the recent twd recipes. Thanks for the recipe, they look yummy!
Ohhh mmmm I just ate a chocolate guiness cupcake, and I wish I had one of these instead… 😀
Oh, I’m not a huge fan of angel food, but maybe in cupcake form with lemon!
Perfect! I saw you posted about these in the TWD comments. I’ve been wanting to make angel food cake but don’t have the pan. These are perfect! And with all those egg whites from TWD in the freezer…
I was just thinking about making an Angel Food Cake!
