Brown Velvet Cake
  1. Red Velvet Cake
  2. Double Chocolate Cake
  3. Angel Food Cake
  4. Cheesecake
_________________________________________________________
Answer: 3
Instead of baking powder, an angel food cake depends on air beaten into egg whites to rise.  Egg yolk, which is a fat, will make the cake fall.  Similarly, the pan cannot be greased with butter when making angel food cake to prevent the cake from falling.
