English term or phrase: Angelґs Delight
As in:

I have never seen facial skin as silky and pure as Francheskaґs, not even on a baby or a china doll or a bowl of Angelґs Delight touched up by a childґs spoon,

Thank you in advance.

Explanation:
Angel's Delight is a dessert, much favoured by children and adults alike. It comes in a variey of packaged flavoured powdersr to which milk is added, and it is then whipped and served on its own or with fruit/jelly whatever.
Hope this helps. It is a brand name so I don't know if there is a Russian equivalent.

услада ангела


Explanation:
Не знаю никого, чья кожа была бы столь чиста и шелковиста, как у Франчески; белизною она походила на кожу младенца или тончайший изысканный фарфор, а прикосновение к ней напоминало о пышно взбитом десерте, известном как "услада ангела", чуть примятом крошечной детской ложечкой.

Explanation:
Angel Delight made by Bird's, (who also make custard powder)is a rather yucky synthetic-tasting dessert which you fluff up as described by the first answer. I loved this when I was a kid and now know why my parents hated the stuff. Lost of hits for sites where you can buy it. It comes in all sorts of flavours (chocolate, butterscotch, strawberry...). So, tap in "Bird's Angel Delight" and you'll see what it is.
You will have to find a Russian equivalent of this plasticy dessert which is very smooth and uniform. The allusion being made in your text is to this smooth uniform texture.

Explanation:
PS Bird's is/Was (?) part of the General Foods Corporation. Perhaps it is marketed in Russia already.
