Ingredients
  Angel food cake mix 14 1⁄2 Ounce (1 Package)
  Ground mace 1 Teaspoon
  Baking apples 2 Medium, pared, quartered, cored, and thinly sliced
  Whole berry cranberry sauce 8 Ounce (1 Can)
  Sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Grated orange rind 1 Teaspoon
  Unflavored gelatin 1 Tablespoon (1 Envelope)
  Water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Red food coloring 6 Drop
  Heavy cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Directions

1. Prepare cake mix with mace, following label directions. Pour batter into an ungreased 10-inch angel cake tube pan.
2. Bake in slow oven (325°)' 50 minutes, or until top springs back when lightly pressed with fingertip.
3. Invert pan, placing tube over a quart-size bottle; let cake cool completely. Loosen cake around edge and tube with a spatula. Cover pan with a serving plate; turn upside down; gently lift off pan. Cut cake into 4 layers.
4. Combine apples, cranberry sauce, sugar and orange rind in a medium-size saucepan. Bring to boiling; reduce heat; cover. Simmer about 10 minutes, or until apples are tender.
5. Soften gelatin in water in a cup; stir into hot apple mixture. Add food coloring to tint pink. Pour into a medium-size metal bowl.
6. Set bo!wl in a larger bowl partly filled with ice and water to speed setting. Chill, stirring often, until as thick as unbeaten egg white.
7. Beat cream until stiff in a medium-size bowl with electric mixer at high speed; fold 1 1/3 cups into mixture.
8. Spread a third of the filling between each layer. Frost top of cake with remaining whipped cream. Chill until ready to serve. Decorate with mint leaves, if you wish.
