    My favorite cake is a sour cream chocolate cake. It’s not hard to make, and it’s moist, tender, and delicious!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. I love plain jane…vanilla cake with chocolate icing…oh and carrot cake and devil’s food with white icing. I really just love cake! yum!

  3. miranda

    I love a good rich chocolate cake-Chocolate fudge cake with dark chocolate ganache. Nice and rich so you need a glass of milk or some ice cream to go with it!

  4. AnnMarie Johnson

    I made a fabulous orange bundt cake last year that was totally awesome. As a kid, however, I adored confetti angel food cake with this crazy shiny fluffy inch-high frosting my mom made.

  5. Katie Rose

    Should we just cut to the chase and say the one on my plate? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Seriously, I’m easy to please. It’s easier to say the only cake I don’t truly care for would be vanilla cake with vanilla icing, it’s just too…boring. If I had to pick just one, Black Forest would be my favorite.

  6. Lovelovelove red velvet cake! But my friend’s cupcake company’s cupcake flavors (Dia Doce out of West Chester PA) are to die for! Salted caramel mocha, chocolate coconut, peanut butter fudge?! Sign me up!!

  7. Lana M

    I absolutely love layered honey cake. IN the fall, I add pumpkin puree for extra flavor and fall flare. Thank you.

  8. stefanie crownover

    Favorite cake is a coconut cake…..white cake, poke holes in it and pour in cream of coconut and condense milk. Top with Cool Whip and shredded coconut. Delicious!

  9. Anita K. WIlson

    My favorite – oatmeal cake with a coconut pecan topping that is put on while the cake is warm, very yummy ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Melissa Clarke

    Wow, how do you pick one favorite!?!? I like chocolate. I like lemon and raspberry. And, I like being surprised by trying new flavors. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Tahmina

    If homemade, chocolate with chocolate frosting. If store bought, a Pepperidge Farm yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Yum!

  12. Sage

    Yellow with chocolate frosting!! & it’s my husband’s favorite too, so we make a good pair (unless, of course, it’s down to the last slice….)! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Josie

    I loooooove Better Than “anything” Cake.
    Chocolate cake with caramel ice cream topping & eagle brand poured over it.

  14. I would be crazy not to say chocolate cake with chocolate icing! But I also love a white cake with vanilla frosting filled with strawberries. And then again, I also love lemon cake with homemade lemon frosting. Hard to pick just one!

  15. Better than S@X cake. Devils food with holes poked in it and pur carmel and sweetened condensed milk top with whip cream and crushed skor bars!! MMMM

  16. Kandice McDermott

    Oooh, cake is my weakness! My favorite flavor depends on the day. I love anything and everything chocolate: German chocolate, Better Than… Chocolate, Red Velvet. Or I could go for a yummy carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, or…Okay, pretty much anything!

  17. Beth Quint

    My favorite cake is a plain yellow cake with chocolate icing….with a nice large glass of cold milk! Mmmm

  18. Torey

    Love birthday cake – white cake, loads of white icing, heavy on the roses, please! Total sucker for the end slice with extra icing!

  19. Julie W

    My favorite cake is a toss up between red velvet with cream cheese icing, and banana cake with peanut butter buttercream. Both are sooo yummy.

  20. Danielle

    I love, Love, LOVE carrot cake!! But it has to be the “proper” carrot cake with walnuts and raisins in it! yum ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Janet

    My favorite cake is……ANY AND EVERY KIND!!!!…lol but if I had to pick just one it would be german chocolate cake or a butter cake with chocolate frosting

  22. Nicole

    I love white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, but my favorite cake to make at home is lemon cake. We’re not huge chocolate fans in our house so lemon is a great alternative for us.

  23. Melanie

    I LOVE CAKE. Period. If I am forced to choose a favorite, I’m going to say homemade carrot cake with cream cheese icing.

  24. Tara Troester

    I love any type of funfetti cake with funfetti frosting! So delightful I may have to make one this week!

  26. Christy

    My favorite kinds of cake are ones with fruit in them, strawberry, lemon, applesauce raisin, raspberry, I love them all!

  27. Pam

    I grew up with this cake…Wacky cake. It is so rich and moist. I never really have liked frosting. This cake does not need it, although my family loves when I add it. I make it with dark chocolate cocoa and it is amazingly simple and moist, with a deep rich flavor.

  28. Carolinachef

    My favorite cake is called Hummingbird Cake…my mom made it for every special occasion. 1 bowl, no fuss.

  29. Jeanne

    Although I love baking, nothing beats a simple yet delicious ice cream cake. The kind that forces you to lick the melted ice cream off the plate when you’re finished with the piece ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Kelli McDonald

    My favorite cake is Tres Leches. I even had it for my wedding cake! I also like raspberry as a filling on a white cake with lemon in the mix somewhere…:)

  31. Alicia

    My favorite cake is white cake with a raspberry filling between the layers with white butter cream icing. My mom makes it every year for my birthday.

    Oooo…so many favorites! Either lemon cake with raspberry buttercream frosting or my mother’s best…italian cream cake with cream cheese frosting.

    Chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream is yummy. So is 1-2-3-4 Cake (yellow) with buttercream. And, I love a chocolate cake with a fluffy ganache filling…I just like cake. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll have to look for the cookbook. Sounds good!

  35. Alisa Seidling

    I love, love, love italian cream cake filled with italian meringue buttercream with extra nuts and coconut, then all iced in italian meringue buttercream…it takes a little extra time to make from scratch, but soooo worth it!

  36. Erin B.

    I seriously have never met a cake I didn’t like :)! To pick just one would be almost impossible..LOL :)!!!

    I’m loathe to admit it but Costco sheet cake. Gotta be the corner piece with a rose (because I love that sugar coma-inducing frosting!)

  38. Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese icing! My high school boyfriend’s Mom made me one for my birthday one year and I was instantly addicted! Its so moist and delicious and is even good with coffee for breakfast! Regardless of season, its easily my favorite!

    Dark chocolate cake with my mom’s frosting. As a kid we called it sticky white frosting. It is sooooooo yummy!!!

  46. Kristina Tolman

    Love all kinds of cake, but I’m not a fan of traditional frosting. ๐Ÿ™‚ I would rather drizzle with caramel or a fruit sauce.

  47. Jane

    I love this coconut cake made with cream de coconut. A friend brought it to a 4th of July picnic all made up with blueberries and strawberries done up like the American flag. It was YUMMY!!!!

  52. Melbell40

    My favorite cake is German Chocolate! I’m taking Cakes right now in Culinary School, would love the cookbook!

  53. Alyssa

    Fudgy chocolate. Regular chocolate will not do, fudgy chocolate, so fudgy others say it’s too rich. That is my favorite!

  54. Rebecca

    My favorite cake is chocolate cake with vanilla frosting… kind of like that one on the cover of that book! ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. Sarah

    Any cake that’s been doctored up with sour cream or greek yogurt. Those items do wonders for any cake mix from a box. I love a double chocolate bundt cake.

  56. Stephanie

    CHEESEcake! Growing up I always asked for a cheesecake for my birthday…not even funfetti would change my mind!

  57. Lindsay S.

    Hands down funfetti! It is fun, playful, and delish!! I took a cake decorating class with Wilton, so I like decorating it as well ๐Ÿ™‚

  58. Carrie

    I love flourless chocolate cake. It should really be called lessflour chocolate cake because there is flour in it!

  59. Erin

    My favorite is caramel cake! The icing is what makes it soooo good, that and it has lots of layers so it is very rich!

  60. I love chocolate with peanut butter frosting. Or peanut butter with chocolate frosting! Throw a little chocolate ganache on the top of either ๐Ÿ™‚

  61. Libby Bennett

    I have always had a soft spot in my heart for a good spice cake with cream cheese frosting! So “homey”.

  62. Mandi

    My favorite cake is my hubby’s Grandma Bette’s Texas Devils Food Cake with Chiffon Frosting!!! YUUUUMMMMM!!!!!!

  63. Pam

    Marble cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting… Well, actually anything with chocolate cream cheese frosting!

  64. My all time favorite kind of cake is Germans’ Chocolate Cake with the coconut pecan frosting and a scoop of homemade vanilla bean ice cream – also really good with coconut milk vanilla ice cream. YUM!

  65. Amanda C

    Oh my goodness. I can’t pick just one! I love cheesecake but for regular cake, chocolate with cream cheese icing.

  66. AMY

    My very favorite cake is a 3 layer densely chocolate cake with a mocha filling and chocolate ganache icing. Richly decadent, highly caloric and possibly the best thing for a chocolate craving.

  67. Alicia B

    While I’ll never turn down anything chocolate, my favorite cake is just a normal yellow cake, with no frosting or anything else on it!

  68. Wendy

    I love my mom’s homemade chocolate cake. LOVE it. No other chocolate cakes I’ve had can hold a candle to hers! ๐Ÿ™‚
