  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line bottom with waxed paper; spray and lightly flour paper. Generously spray and flour 10-oz. custard cup.
  • 2 In large bowl, combine cake mix, water, oil and egg whites; beat at low speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Pour 1/2 cup batter into sprayed and floured custard cup. Pour remaining batter evenly into sprayed and floured paper-lined pan.

To form angel shape, starting at center of one short side, make 2 diagonal cuts to corners of opposite short side, forming a triangular piece in center. Separate piece 1 and 2 from piece 3 at bottom of cake to form wings. (See diagrams.)
