Jackie, thank you so much for your generous spirit in sharing the food you love to make. Your style and creativity are awe-inspiring. Your easy manner and excellent writing skills make a novice want to give your loveliest recipes a try.

I'm wondering if you can help me with something I've been looking for. I was friends in Houston with a beautiful Vietnamese girl and she invited me to her home a few times for family parties. A family member always brought the same cake and it was inhaled within minutes. I could never even get the name of it, unfortunately.

The cake is similar to an angel food cake in color and texture but is 10 times lighter - it really felt like eating delicious air. The frosting was a white sweet frosting but, it too, was somehow whipped to an incredible delicate lightness. There was just enough sweetness to make it more-ish but one could easily imagine eating the whole cake and not even feeling sick from the sweetness.

Would you have any idea that would point me to a recipe?

Many, many thanks!
Sydney, Australia
