Pumpkin Angel Food Cake with Creamy Ginger Filling

Looking for a delicious holiday dessert that won’t add inches to your waistline?  Try’s Pumpkin Angel Food Cake with Creamy Ginger Filling!  With only 180 calories and 0 g Fat per serving it really is a guilt free indulgence.  My only critique is that I think the ginger in the cool whip was a little strong.  Of course, we didn’t have the crystallized ginger so we used powdered.  Other than that, it was really good-and lite enough to eat after a large meal!
