Move oven rack to lowest position.


Preheat oven to 375°.


Mix powdered sugar and flour together; Set aside.


Beat egg whites and cream of tartar with electric mixer on medium speed until foamy.


Beat in granulated sugar 2 Tbsp. at a time at high speed.


Add vanilla, almond extract and salt with the last 2 Tbsp. of sugar.


Continue beating until stiff, glossy meringue forms.


Sprinkle sugar and flour mixture, 1/4 cup at a time, over meringue, folding just until sugar and flour mixture disappears.


Push batter into an ungreased angel food pan.


Cut gently through batter with metal spatula.

Immediately turn pan upside down onto heatproof funnel or bottle. Let hang about 2 hours or until cake is completely cool.
