We’ve seriously run out of shows to watch. We’re in that month or so where there is basically nothing on to watch that’s new, besides a few random shows. So, we’re trying to find shows to stream. We used to watch NCIS pretty regularly, but then stopped for one reason or another. I’m sure it had a lot to do with timing – too many shows on at the same time. Back then, we could only record one show while watching another. The horror! The other night I realized that 11 of the 13 seasons are on Netflix! Basically the best binge opportunity and a perfect time to catchup.

In other news… I’ve somehow managed to completely avoid buying apples in bulk so far this year, but it’s definitely on my to-do list for the very near future. I’m craving Fall like nothing else. I know just the other day I said I was in limbo between Fall and Summer, but somewhere between then and now I’ve crossed the line. I’m ready to fully embrace everything Fall related again.

Because it’s the weekend. And, because Labor Day weekend is two weeks away… Though, I’m honestly not sure how that’s even possible because I swear Summer just started….


Ridiculously tasty and fluffy homemade (aka not a box mix in sight) angel food cake cupcakes, topped off with creamy stabilized whipped cream and fresh raspberries.

These cupcakes are seriously dreamy and one of the best parts about them is obviously the frosting. I wouldn’t go as far as saying it’ll stand up to high outdoor Summer temperatures but they’ll definitely keep at indoor air conditioned temps for quite a while without the concern of them literally dripping right off of the cupcakes, as normal whipped cream frosting would likely do… and rather quickly too!

My family loved these straight from the fridge. I highly recommend trying them that way. Super chilled whipped cream with the perfect light and fluffy cake is a-mazing.

Be sure to add these angel food cupcakes to your weekend baking plans!

    We’ve totally run out of shows too! The evenings are so boring these days, just sitting and staring at each other. #firstworldproblems.
    Having a few of these gorgeous cupcakes would help. I LOVE me some angel food, and yours look perfect! Pinned!

    I’m so sad that I finished Game of Thrones. We started this summer, and…um, watched like 5 seasons in three weeks. Best binge-watch show. I need another one! I’m currently in the middle of Bloodline, but that will soon be over too :(

    These cupcakes look so good! Love the stabilized whipped cream topping, perfect for transporting!

      Game of Thrones was SO good. I can’t wait for it to come back next year (such a long wait)! And thanks so much Laura!! :)

    I haven’t had angel food cake in way too long. Would it be wrong if I just ate the tops off all the cupcakes?

    Perfect cupcakes. I love angel food cake, but a bit intimidated to make it.

      It’s super easy and not to be feared at all! :)

    These looks yummy! How about some K-Drama (Korean dramas)? They could be very addicting! Netflix and Hulu have them. :)

      Thanks for the suggestion Sarah!

    I feel your pain about not having any tv shows to watch! I’ve resorted to summer competition shows (american ninja warrior, and america’s got talent), but I really need to find something else to watch.

    These cupcakes look perfect for any labor day weekend gatherings!

      Rachel — August 24, 2015 at 7:57 am

      Ninja warrior can be fairly entertaining but I like to watch it recorded so I can skip through the chatter and just watch them compete.

    These look so pretty! I have never tried making angel food cake from scratch before, but would love to. These just seem so light and fluffy and perfect! Putting this on my list of recipes to try.

    This looks sooo good. You say to use a “round tip” to pipe. I don’t think this looks like it came out of a round tip. Do you remember what number tip you did use? Thank you.

      Rachel — January 31, 2016 at 4:03 pm

      The directions state to use a round tip to pipe the batter into the cupcake liners prior to baking, and to use your desired tip for piping the frosting. I believe a closed star tip was used for these cupcakes.
