  1. Apologies as I know this is late, but I wanted to share my favorite cake for fun! Chocolate applesauce! A recipe my grandmother taught my mother and my mother taught me. And the icing that goes with it is yummy!!

  2. Claire

    Any cake that involves poking holes in it and pouring sweetened condensed milk on top. Then, of course, cover the cake with cool whip. And while you’re at it, go ahead and sprinkle your favorite candy bar pieces on top. Need I say more?

  5. Lori C

    My favorite kind of cake is a creamy, decadent chocolate raspberry cheesecake. My DH, however loves cake in all forms… This book would be perfect!

  6. Sue

    I’ve never met a cake I didn’t like…..but my all time favorite is chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. It’s what my mom made for everyone’s birthdays as we were growing up.

  7. My favorite cake is applesauce cake. I have a recipe from my husband’s grandma that is hard to beat. Full of buttery goodness with a penuche icing.

  8. Cheryl B.

    My favorite cake is red velvet cake with fluffy white frosting not cream cheese frosting. It has to be from scratch not from a box.

  9. My favourite cake? I don’t have one favourite but I do love the moist chocolate cake recipe we always made growing up. An egg-less one with vinegar and oil. It’s a no-fail cake in my experience and perfect for birthdays.

  10. April was in CT now CA

    I follow your blog via RSS feed. And what a timely give away, I just ordered two brand new cake pans!

  11. Susan D.

    I like simple, quick, un-fussy cake…with frosting or not. This cookbook looks like it would be right up my alley!!

  12. Valerie G

    I’d love a slice of a rich, chocolate cake coated in fudgy chocolate frosting with a big glass of white milk on the side. Mmmmmm!

  13. Melissa Ansiel

    My favorite kind of cake is each one I bake especially for my children’s unique birthdays! Sometimes they pick chocolate, other times pink strawberry, but they are always shaped and decorated to go along with the theme of the party!

  14. Debbie

    Either Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting or Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting-Yum!!

  15. I like sooo many— coconut cake, oatmeal with broiled coconut icing. Carrot cake with coconut , raisins and pineapple topped with cream cheese icing, german chocolate, Italian Creme, any kind of chocolate with ganache and/or white buttercream frosting. Gosh I need to stop there are so many I can’t name them all. It would be easier to say what I don’t like which is Angel food or what my grandpa used to call “shot gun wadding” and any cake without frosting.

  16. Sarah

    White almond sour cream wedding cake…at least that’s what the recipe’s called – I make it for all our family birthdays!

  17. marla

    I LOVE Texas sheet cake and Mississippi mud cake. I never noticed my two favorite cakes were named after states ๐Ÿ˜‰ (I did notice they are both chocolate!)

  18. Annette

    My favorite is my Mom’s applesauce cake with vanilla butter icing – it’s delicious and can be made vegan!

  19. lyndi

    My favorite cake is an old family recipe. It’s just a simple chocolate cookie sheet cake with the most delicious chocolate frosting!

  20. Melissa

    Ever since I was a little girl it has been Marble Cake with Bavarian filling and white buttercream frosting.

  21. Jennifer Rapoza

    I love chocolate cake! The darker and richer the better! Might this cookbook have a great new recipe for me? Oh I can only wish! ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. VickiT

    OOh that looks like an awesome cookbook to own. And entire cookbook just for cakes? Oh yes please!

    I’d have to say my favorite cake would be Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting as long as it’s homemade. LOVE them and don’t know why I don’t make them more often.

  23. Diane

    Love lots of different cake flavors but I guess my favorite is yellow cake with a vanilla buttercream( thick) frosting and a layer of frosting between layers !

  24. I love vanilla cake with a raspberry filling…it was our wedding cake and every time I eat that type of cake it reminds me of that special day ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Letitia

    I’m a sucker for a nice, dense and moist cake, so pound cake is number one for me. However I don’t think I’ve ever met a cake I didn’t like.

  26. I love a good creamy cheesecake, and I absolutely love a really good, dense, moist, fudgy Chocolate cake with ganache – Yumm!!! I also follow you on Facebook!

  27. Karen U.

    I love a good moist chocolate cake. But with the cool fall weather here, a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting sounds wonderful! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  28. Martha T

    That’s tough, but I think it would have to be Double Chocolate Layer Cake from epicurious.com with chocolate cream cheese icing and bittersweet chocolate ganache … maybe some chocolate covered strawberries. ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Love cake! Right now my favorite is Trois Chocolats: thin layer of chocolate cake topped with a layer each of white chocolate, milk chocolate, and dark chocolate mousse with a chocolate ganache on top. Yum! ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Barbara

    Can’t decide between coconut cake (that magic one by Ina Garten) or a carrot cake (w/ all the fixin’s – fresh carrots, raisins, pineapple, coconut) with cream cheese frosting. Decisions, decisions!

  31. Dawn

    My favorite cake is dark chocolate cake with butter cream and then a dark chocolate ganache on top! Makes a beautiful cake…I make them for groom cakes all the time!! LOVE!!

  32. Chrissy

    If I had to choose a favorite cake, it would probably have to be cherry chip, with a rich chocolate cake running a close second!

  33. Sue

    Good ole pound cake with fruit topping or ice cream. That would be
    one of my favorites. Can’t forget Birthday Cake with creamy icing,too!

  34. 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™‚

  35. 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!

  36. 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.

  37. Amanda C

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

  38. 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!

  39. Pam

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

  40. Mandi

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

  41. Libby Bennett

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

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

  43. 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!

  44. Carrie

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

  45. 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™‚

  46. Stephanie

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

  47. 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.

  48. Rebecca

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

  49. Alyssa

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

  50. Melbell40

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