Ding Dong Cake

Years ago I made a cake inspired by the Ding Dongs. I don’t remember much about it other than the filling was made with flour, sugar and Crisco and that the end result really was better than it sounded. Given that I’m on a retro cake bender, I looked for the Ding Dong cake recipe […]

The original version was on the back of a Watkins cherry extract box, and since Todd loves anything chocolate-cherry, I knew this cake was in our future. The original cake was double this and baked in a standard size Bundt pan. I’m glad […]

Birthday Cake

For her birthday, Fuzz requested a marble cake with chocolate icing and an assortment of decorating items so that she could decorate it herself. I think she did the job quickly because she’d spent a whole day at Six Flags and was ready to cut the cake and eat it. Happy Birthday Fuzz! The recipe […]

Scratch Irish Cream Cake

Irish Cream Cake

Yesterday’s Irish Cream Cake was fun, but I wanted to create a scratch version and this is what I came up. Todd and I agreed it was better than the cake mix version, and even thought it’s scratch, it’s just as easy. The ingredients list seems long, but it’s mostly basic pantry items and the cake itself is a “stir-and-bake” variation on Black Magic Cake.
