Vanilla Glaze for Angel Food Cake

I made my first Angel Food Cake... I don't know what got into me. (I think it had something to do with the 6 dozen eggs sitting in my fridge... and just knowing this knocked out at least a dozen. :) Anyway- I have to say it was delicious, but A TON OF WORK! I have come to the conclusion that those ones you pay a few dollars for in the store are worth their weight in gold! I had to just beat those egg whites for about 30-40 minutes straight! I was going to post the recipe, but it was really long and detailed. (Sheer laziness I suppose.) I just used the one in my standby Betty Crocker Cookbook. I was proud of myself following it so closely, and that it turned out so nice. Anyway- I found this yummy glaze to go over the top. It tasted so good with the strawberries. Maybe it is because I am pregnant, but I just about wiped out the whole cake myself... I have got to restrain myself a little bit. Anyway, enjoy the glaze. :)
