Food Fun Fact: Angel food cake was named as such due to its white colour and light and fluffy exterior. The airy texture came from the use of egg whites and were supposed to represent angels. However, with angels came demons. Devil cakes started becoming popular in the 20th century. They were named so because the chocolate taste was so rich and delicious, they were somehow sinful. To this day, some people still think of chocolate as a little bit sinful due to the effects to their waist line.
