Can I Turn This Into Angel Food Cupcakes?

If you want to make these into angel food cupcakes, it only takes 2 changes to the recipe. First, when you are ready to fill the pan, use cupcake tins and liners instead. The other is how long you will bake the cupcakes. When you make these, you will bake the cupcakes 15-18 minutes until they are golden brown and the top is dry.
