Angel food cake is not typically frosted but is served with fruit and whipped cream. However, cupcakes beg for something frosting like on top, so I used a meringue frosting (use sugar and water instead of honey for a whiter meringue).

The result was fine for something like topping these cupcakes just before serving.
