What are your favorite kind of cakes?

I am a HUGE dessert lover! One of my favorite all time dessert is cake! I love all kinds of cake. My favorite kinds of cake would have to be Red Velvet with white chocolate cream cheese frosting, vanilla cake with chocolate frosting, chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting, and a cannoli cake.
So what are some of your favorite cakes?

Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting is one of my favorites. I recently made this yellow cake with Mexican-inspired chocolate frosting - the frosting had dark chocolate and cinnamon chips, Kahlua, vanilla extract, espresso powder and cayenne pepper, and I topped it with pumpkin and sunflower seeds. It was delicious!

Homemade German Chocolate! Carrot cake is a close second.

I have a white cake recipe that calls for fresh strawberries on one layer, apricot filling on one layer and Swiss Cream Frosting on the next layer. The whole cake is then frosted with the Swiss Cream. It takes forever to make, but is so worth it. Tastes like wedding cake.

It should have won!! There were cheaters there and lousy judges!

My favorite cake. Patty cake, patty cake, bakers man, bake me a cake as fast as you can. Oh dear, there goes the mind again. But it still is my favorite cake to play with when my grandkids are just getting old enough to play it with me.

But for now, it has to be Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate, Chocolatey Cake with frosting to match.

What are your favorite kind of cakes?

I love a good, moist carrot cake with raisins, maybe pineapple bits, and a thick layer of cream cheese frosting.

A rich chocolate cake with dark chocolate frosting is good too. Ooh, and German chocolate cake, with the coconut frosting!

I prefer it when someone else bakes it!

It's still pretty hot here in the middle of the desert, so we're still all about the ice cream.
Cannoli Ice Cream Cake
This recipe is fantastic and easy to make.

I like em all!

In the fall I like an applesauce cake with a rum glaze.

A moist lemon cake soaked with lemon infused simple syrup when it comes out of the oven.

For a picnic I like a Wacky or Depression chocolate snack cake with white butter frosting.

At Easter I like a three layer white cake flavored with almond extract, frosted with Crisco Frosting - Recipe - Cooks.com and covered in coconut.

Sour cream pound cake that has been allowed to ripen for a few days before cutting.

and on and on and on!!!
