  I recently bought angel food cupcakes that had obviously risen beautifully high above the cupcake paper. Does anyone know how they did that?

  They rose higher because -
'Angel food cake requires that the egg whites be whipped until they are stiff, and gently folded into the other ingredients. For this method of leavening to work well, it is useful to have flour that has been made of softer wheat. This and the lack of fat causes angel food cake to have a very light texture and taste.'
