my parents are starting to push me for what i want for a bday dessert

i have to answer somehow. theres no getting away with no 'special dessert' with my ENTIRE mom's side of the family there

so i was wondering if there was a general thing i could ask for
like, "i want cherry pie/chocolate cake/ice cream" (but not those, durr)
but no brands
or else im gonna end up with berry cobbler, a delicious and fatty food that i'll end up eating all of and blowing up like the fat lardass sow-heffer i am

Angel Food Cake with optional berry topping, serves 20 at 100 cal, 15 at 134, and 10 at 200, without topping. With topping it's about an additional 60cal for half a cup.

12 eggs
1 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar

Separate eggs; discard yolks or refrigerate for another use. Measure egg whites, adding or removing whites as needed to equal 1-1/2 cups. Place in a mixing bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, sift confectioners' sugar and flour together three times; set aside. Add cream of tartar, extracts and salt to egg whites; beat on high speed. Gradually add sugar, beating until sugar is dissolved and stiff peaks form. Fold in flour mixture, 1/4 cup at a time. Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Immediately invert pan; cool completely before removing cake from pan.

Serve with a little Free Cool Whip and fresh cut strawberries (in peak season) or other mixed fresh berries. For added sweetness, take 1/4th the berries you have, put them in a saucepan covering a quarter of the berries and add some splenda. With a fork, mash a few berries into a 'jam'. Sweeten to taste and let simmer a few minues until thickened. Let cool, then whip with a little cool wate so it isn't jammy but more glaze. Then soak your berries in it for a decedant dessert that's deliciously devicingly low cal.

Oh, you can also frost it with free cool whip and garnish it by slicing the bundt in half and putting the berry mix as a glaze with a little whip to hold a cream. Just scrape off what you don't want.
