    Simple, easy and very pretty! A very dense, moist, rich cake, packed with lemon flavor!

    Recipe #186402

    Nobody else in my family loves coconut as much as me. Coconut anything... This cake is so delicious and moist and I can't stay away from it. The cream cheese icing recipe I use to frost it is the same as some posted here.

    Recipe #182377

    Caution: Not for the timid or beginner baker. ***When I offered to make the cake for my friend's daughters Oz themed bday party, I thought for sure I could find a really fun ruby slipper cake online. But all I found were over the rainbow cakes or cakes using oz figurines - these were not creative enough for me. So I created Dorothy's Ruby Slipper Cake. I allowed myself 4 days of doing cake stuff before the party day because I didn't want to get over tired trying to do it all at once. But it can probably be done in two days - one day for baking and freezing and one day for building and frosting. Or I suppose one day if you woke up early enough. ***To make building the cake easier, you will need a long serrated bread knife, I wide spatula and a long narrow spatula - see pic 1. You will also need a 9x13" cake pan, two 8" loaf pans, an electric mixer, and a double boiler. ***The frosting recipe I use is Fluffy 7 Minute Frosting #22181 by Caryn. I have included it here. ***Good Luck and Enjoy!

    Recipe #181972

    Great for a baby shower or a first birthday! This recipe can be made in half just be sure to use a smaller pan or use a shell pan and watch the cooking time. I made for a shower so I wanted a large cake to feed many. You are welcome to use any ice cream flavor. If you like your frosting you may want to make extra. Think ahead of color scheme and where you want to place which colors. You can simply this recipe by just using a box mix according to it's directions and skip the glazes. I used these glazes to enhance the ice cream flavor.

    I LOVE this recipe so much.. make it for a party or birthday when you want to WOW your guests. I hope that you enjoy making this, I know I did!! Not a beginner recipe but a great one to have your kids assist you with the filling or frosting! Originally found in "The Summer Book" by Susan Branch. Make sure you have a double boiler for the filling and a candy thermometer for the frosting! NOTE: I made four 8" layer cakes by doubling the recipe, rather than using one batch to make three 8" layer cakes. Be generous!

    This is great for kids although it is my married son Paul and his wife Wendy that request this for their birthdays instead of a traditional birthday cake.

    I used to buy this cake from the local bakery and decided it was less expensive to make it myself... (use only fresh fruit - not frozen)

    All this cute cake needs is a cake mix, frosting and a few cookies and candies. Made this cake last night with a commercial size cake mix and it was a huge success today! However, I cheated with the decorations a bit. Here is the original recipe from bettycrocker.com

    Recipe #159857

    This is a healthy carrot cake that is also delicious. I made this cake for my daughter's 1st birthday. It frosts up nice with cream cheese frosting. I tinted our frosting pink with slices of beets stirred into the frosting.

    Recipe #158906

    After reading a brief article about the all-American chocolatier, Andrew Shotts, I wanted to try one of his decadent recipes that helped him earn his spot among the “Top 10 Artisanal Chocolatier” by USA Today. I can honestly say, hands down, this is the best chocolate cake I have ever made and probably will ever make. WARNING: If you are not a fan of incredibly moist and tender, rich but light, and fudgy but creamy chocolate cakes then this dessert is certainly NOT for you. If you are… then buckle your seat belt this is pure chocolate ecstasy. Use the highest quality chocolate and cocoa you can find. MAKE AHEAD: The cake will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 3 days (covered). Bring to room temperature before slicing.

    These comments are from their cookbook: "At Magnolia we decided to make our cake not quite a traditional yellow cake or a traditional sponge cake, given the use of whole eggs in our recipe. We're sure you'll agree this recipe is moist, delicious and makes a beautiful layer cake or cupcakes for birthdays or any celebration. Frost with pink buttercream icing and lots of colored sprinkles as we do, and feel as though you're at your seventh birthday party all over again!"

    This is a rich chocolate cake with just a hint of heat. This is totally my own recipe. I originally started with just a chocolate sheet cake recipe that I wanted to spice up a little for something different. Then I remembered that the Mayan's "hot" chocolate was actually drunk cold and had been mixed with spices. It was Montezuma (1466-1520) who introduced Hernam Cortes to his favorite drink 'chocolatl' served in a golden goblet. And it was the fact that Montezuma consumed his "chocolatl" before entering his harem that led to the belief it was an aphrodisiac. :D The very first chocolate drink recipe ever published was in 1631 and called for chillies, almonds, hazlenuts, vanilla beans, cinnamon and anise among other things. I combined the two recipes and played around until I got the flavor I like. Note: This does call for almonds and hazelnuts. Posted for Zaar World Tour 05

    Recipe #139268

    This is so simple and so good, not just as frosting either!! I am a recently diagnosed diabetic with a gigantic sweet tooth, so I am always looking for goodies. I was sitting around bored and craving something sweet one day and this is what happened. This is pretty low in carbs too-- which is great for diabetics as well as low carb dieters. But beware, it is NOT low in fat!! This recipe makes a bunch, but I am pretty sure it can be reduced by parts. The serving number is a guess-- it depends on what you use this for.

    This cake is locally famous and so good! I always frost it with my Eva Rae's cream cheese frosting recipe #119543.

    This recipe comes from Key Lime Cookin' by Joyce LaFray. Key limes are smaller and sweeter than regular limes. If you can't find key limes or key lime juice you may sub regular limes.

    Tes Leches translates to 3 milks which make this so very moist! I add hazelnut creamer to the 3 milks so I thought I should name it Cuatro Leches. You will not be disappointed. This looks hard but is a very easy cake and well worth it.

    Recipe #117503

    This is just an incredible recipe that will have you swooning, as long as you don't think about the calories! You can make it easier by buying a Madeira cake or any pound-type cake. Or, if you're anal like me about preservatives and other stuff in store-bought things you can make your own. I used recipe number 85, Butter Madeira Cake. Make this up to 2 days ahead or freeze it, for easy party planning!

    Recipe #114505

    This is something I dug out of my recipe book. After making it I will treat this more of a souffle type dish as you have to make sure it doesn't 'fall' during cooking. Do not open the oven until necessary and no running or undue noise whilst baking.
