Pie gets a lot of attention around here so I figured we should also honor her cousin, cake. What is your favorite kind?

Yellow cake with chocolate frosting! My mom makes me one every year for my birthday! :lickout:

A close second would be coconut cake from Ukrop's! (Local Richmond, VA grocery store chain. The grocery stores have changed into Martin's but the bakery is still going.)

Ehm.. Ice Cream Cake! :lickout: :lickout:

I don't like regular frosting but I like the non-dairy whipped stuff. It's yummmmy.

You want your kids to hate cake as adults? Give them a fork and their own cake with the highest buttercream to sugar ratio and sit back and relax.

I've hated frosting for at least 20 years now.

I'm going to have to answer, any cake made with good ingredients.

[rant] So often these days we buy beautiful-looking cakes that taste nothing like back in the day when they used real butter and cream in cakes and frosting.
I think they just use cheaper greasy fats because they've discovered that as long as it looks pretty and tastes sweet plenty of people will buy it.

It's like store-bought strawberries and tomatoes.
We buy it because it's all that's offered any more. Sad.
It's gotten so I won't buy cakes in stores, even some bakeries are taking the higher-profit cheapo route. :knockout: [/endrant]

I think a well-made cheesecake is the ultimate.

I have a thing for wedding cake. White cake with white icing. I don't know why wedding cake is so appealing to me, but I love it.

I also love red velvet. Yum.

And finally, good ol' chocolate. That really hits the spot sometimes.

Cake is my favorite dessert, hands down. I love ice cream, pie and cookies, but for me, cake is the best!

Ice cream cake or cookie cake. YUMMMMM!

For our dessert tasting, we tried a ton of different cakes....we ended up going with one I never expected. Carrot cake with cream cheese filling/walnuts and buttercream frosting. I never liked carrot cake but when I tried this...I officially become in love. It was so moist. Yum.

I love cheesecake too.

I'm not into red velvet...it tastes the same as any boxed cake to me.

OH AND OMG. how could I even forget...my most favorite cake on the entire planet is Napoleon. Not the italian kind, either...the Russian kind. ooooooooooomg.

I LOVE a good Carrot cake, and it has to have nuts, and real cream cheese frosting.

I guess I'm crazy for nuts (I picked pecan pie as my fav pie)

I love chocolate cake with white butter cream icing. Kinda boring but so good. My daughter does not like "white" cake (aka vanilla) and it is really common for kid's to have marble cake at their parties. My daughter carefully eats the chocolate pieces and ALL of the icing. Pretty funny.

Either a really good, sharp lemon drizzle cake or a dense fudgy chocolate cake.

Neither does my son! What kid doesn't like cake? At all the B-day parties he goes to, he just asks for ice cream if they have it.

My nephew is the same, I always sit next to him when the cake is going round :naughty:

I love cake.

1. White cake with white/colorful buttercream frosting--this is because a lady who made cakes was our neighbor and always made my birthday cakes (like until I was 25 or something and she passed away--I miss her.)
2. White cake with lemon frosting
3. Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting

I don't like to mix it up too much and will try different flavors, but those are my top three.

Mint chocolate chip!

T, I found the most AMAZING buttercream recipe and tried it out last night. It made me think of you! Soooooo good. Just use salted butter instead of unsalted, and half and half instead of milk. Heavenly.

Jello cake.

ETA yellow cake in two layers w/a mixture of cream cheese and sugar and whipped cream as the frosting between the layers and all over, and strawberries cut up in the middle and all over the top.
