Let’s Eat Cake!

Well, I’ve gone from hot chocolate obsessed to cake obsessed. I thought it would be fun to round up a few of the cakes I’ve been drooling over lately. I haven’t baked a cake in a long time–which is strange because I always find the whole process very relaxing. It always feels rewarding to top off your creation with frosting, fruit or powdered sugar. I used to make cake for other people often–I’d like to make time for that again. There are so many lovely recipes to try! Do you have any favorites?

    The persian love cake was my (our) wedding cake! My mom made it for us, along with a table of other desserts. It’s really lovely and delicious!

    This is my kind of post! Last month, I made a devil’s food cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting (recipe courtesy of Richard Olney). I was planning on making a coconut cake soon, but that vanilla cake sounds yummy too. I love cake!!!

  6. Every now and then I enjoy making a ridiculously huge layer cake and this post has given me SO much inspiration! CAKE! I want it all. Also, yay for the Always With Butter blog using golden syrup in a cake, it’s one of my very favourite ingredients.

    I made the Persian love cake in a cupcake version as Valentine’s Day treats. They were a hit! And the candied rose petals are so easy but look deceptively fancy.
