halving angel food cake?

I see most recipes for angel food cake calling for whites from 11 or 12 eggs. any thoughts on making a half recipe (I have 6 whites to spare). I know I could make meringue, but I was thinking this would be a nice thing to accompany all the great fruit I have right now!

You could make a half recipe and try baking individual cakes in muffin tins - I'd watch them very carefully, though, as they'll cook pretty quickly!

Thanks...I am doing half a recipe in a regular pan. I would have done cupcakes, great idea, but my pan was kind of icky. Seems like the cake, currently finishing in the oven, is going to be fine, just half as tall!

sfmiller beat me to it, but I've done exactly the same thing. Merrill - I tried the Angelfood cake cupcake idea but wasn't able to turn the pan upside down (had lined the pan with cupcake papers) and the cake really settled in on itself as it cooled. That upside down cooling thing is really important for AF cake.
