Golden Chiffon Cake

The name of this cake just makes me want to bake it. It conjures images of girls in party dresses with fluffy crinolines, gloves, glasses of punch and boys with their hair slicked down on the other side of the room. I think I’d ice this with a vanilla icing and top it maybe with cut strawberries. Mmmmmm.
