Chiffon cake has soft texture, taste like clouds, feel like a soft chiffon, so it is called Chiffon Cake.
Chiffon cake, invented in 1927 by an insurance broker in California named Harry Baker, was not made public until 1948 when Baker sold the cake shop.
Chiffon cake is very light in texture. It is made of rapeseed oil, eggs, sugar, flour and powder. Since rapeseed oil is not as easily bubbling as butter (butter is traditionally used), egg white needs to be foamed to provide enough air to support the size of the cake. Chiffon cake contains enough rapeseed oil and eggs, so the texture is very wet, not as easy to harden as traditional butter cake. Therefore, it is more suitable for cakes that need refrigeration. It also contains less saturated fat.
Chiffon cake is one of the most popular cakes at present because of its loose organization, high moisture content, light taste and tender taste. Although chiffon cake is very soft, it has elasticity and no soft rotten feeling. It is delicious to eat with various sauces. In addition, chiffon cake can also be made into various cake rolls, Boston pies and so on.

Angel cake (angel food cake) became popular in the United States in the 19th century. It's relative to chocalate Devil's food cake, but they are completely different types of cake. At that time, baking powder was invented, so many new cakes were invented. Angel cakes and chocolate devil cakes appeared at the same time. The latter mainly consisted of chocolate and butter.
Angel cake is very different from other cakes. Its cotton-like texture and color are made from hard foamed egg white, sugar and white flour. It does not contain butter or oil, so the egg white foam can better support the cake.To make angel cakes, the egg white is first beaten into stiff peaks formed and then folded into other materials with a light folding technique. Angel cakes are fat-free, so they are very light in taste and texture. Angel cakes are difficult to cut with a knife. The knife can press down the cake easily. Therefore, forks, serrated knives and special cutters are usually used.

Pound cake is also known as heavy oil cake, which a kind of paste cake made by mixing a lot of butter with eggs and flour. It tastes stronger than chiffon and sponge cake. Because a lot of butter is added, the taste is very mellow.
Many people have a special fondness for pound cake, perhaps because it tastes mellow enough. Maybe it's because of its strong taste, or because of its simple appearance. Pound cakes are simple enough to be made and stored for a long time.
The newly baked pound cake is brushed with sugar water, cooled, wrapped in plastic film and refrigerated for a few days until it returns to oil. This is the key to the delicacy of pound cake. The taste after oil return can only be personally tasted, which is indescribable.
