Recipes: Caramel Macchiato Angel Food Cake

Who doesn't love a quick and easy recipe?! I know I do! 
One of my absolute all time favorite cakes is angel food. The light and airy texture of the sweet cake is to die for. There is nothing better on a warm day then angel food cake so when my friend Jane mentioned she wanted to make something with angel food cake I immediately started looking for a quick easy recipe for a spruced up version. Unfortunately, my search for a quick & easy recipe only lead me to only homemade recipes. As much as I love cakes that are made from scratch, angel food required more work then what I was searching for.
My inspiration was from one recipe I found for a homemade Caramel Macchiato cake. I decided to make, what I like to call, a "semi"-homemade version. It has the perfect amount of coffee flavor and sweetness and the light whipped topping and caramel drizzle is the perfect pairing.

2. After cake has cooled, slice and top with whipped topping and caramel sauce.
