Angel Food Cake with Orange Glaze and Candied Cranberries

I started to called this post "I Got My Duncan Hines On" . . . but reconsidered.  

I actually thought for just a minute of making an angel food cake "from scratch" but decided I'd rather just use the box mix.  So much easier.

I made this cake Sunday for Hubbie and I.   This is a very festive looking cake and would be great to serve at a holiday gathering.

Without further conversation about it, this is how I did it:

Angel Food Cake with Orange Glaze and Candied Cranberries:

Angel Food Cake:

1.  Prepare the angel food cake per package instructions.
2.  After it has cooled, remove it from cake pan and place on a plate.

Orange Glaze:

1.  One Cup of Powdered Sugar.
2.  Two Tablespoons of Fresh Orange Juice
3.  Four Tablespoons of Milk or enough to make the glaze desired consistency.
4.  Pour glaze over cake.

Candied Cranberries:

1.   Combine 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a small sauce pan and cook until sugar is dissolved.
2.  Pour cranberries into the simple syrup and then roll them in sanding sugar and arrange on cake.

Serve to family and friends!!
