Plenty of them right here- lots of good flavored ones, too at the link.
Here is a simple one:
Simple Powdered Sugar Icing
Prep Time: 5 min
Total Time: 5 min
Makes: 1/2 cup or 8 servings, 1 Tbsp. each
1 cup powdered sugar
4 to 5 tsp. milk, divided
MIX powdered sugar and 4 tsp. of the milk until well blended.
STIR in remaining 1 tsp. milk, if necessary for desired consistency.

Angel food cake is nicely complimented with citrus. For the holiday season a warm orange & cranberry glaze is very nice. It means you have to keep a separate pan of the glaze on low heat on the stove top, but this will make you very popular with your guests.
Start with some Gran Marnier (orange brandy) or Gran Gala if you want to save a few dollars. Heat the brandy (about 1 1/2 cups) in a sauce pan until the alcohol is cooked off. You'll be able to tell by the aroma when the alcohol is being released. Use low heat to avoid flaming. Once the brandy is hot, add 1/2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries.
While the brandy cooks, juice 2 oranges. Pulp is ok here so if you get some chunks, don't worry.
Measure 1 1/2 cups Orange Marmelade, set to the side
Measure 1/4 cup honey, set to the side.
Once the brandy cools slighty add the other ingredients and allow to stand at room temperature. The mixture will thicken slightly. Once you see the mixture has reached a nice syrupy consistency, you're done. Cover and store in the fridge until you are ready to heat and serve, or use immediately. When reheating, use low heat and stir occasionally.
Serve over slices of Angel food cake.

A really easy one is to melt a jar of orange marmalade and pour it slowly over the cake. The orange and the cake go really well together and the little orange bits in the marmalade give it a pretty look. If you don't like the orange, try the same thing with strawberry jam or other jams/jellies. Apple jelly works well too. Garnish the cake with a sampling of whatever flavor you used i.e. orange peel curls. Use your imagination and don't be afraid to experiment. Good luck.
