Cure for a boring snow day.
Angel food cake topped with one of the following syrups.

Coffee syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup strong coffee
add a teaspoon of instant if your coffee is not strong enough and bring to a gentle simmer until sugar is dissolved.

Rose and Almond syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. rose water
1/4 tsp almond extract
The tiniest bit of pink food coloring can be left out. I used it for visibility in the photos.

The Rose Almond is bit perfumey but I like it. The coffee syrup is the hands down winner at my house and it is more likely that most people have the ingredients handy.
OK, I admit, I totally cheated on the cake. It was an impulse buy at the store last night, but nevertheless yummy.
