#SpoonTip: If you’re in a rush, buy a pre-made angel food cake and skip to step five.
Pour batter into greased pan. Then bake according to directions on box or until browned.
Remove cake from oven and place the pan upside-down on a glass bottle to cool.
Chop the angel food cake into bite-sized pieces with a serrated knife once cooled and set aside.
