angel food cake with orange icing

We just got back from a fantastic trip to see family then returned to remarkable weather at home with pink blossoms on many of the trees- so pretty!  My mom bought these little angel food cakes for my Grandpa with the intention of making orange icing to drizzle over the top, which he loves.  I looked up a recipe and voila- here they are.  I am glad my mom suggested some coconut grass and jelly beans to add a little color around the seemingly bland looking cakes.  This icing is great!
