Anyone have any good ideas? I usually do marble, we're all sick of it... icon_wink.gif I don't want any flavors like chai or pinto bean though. icon_lol.gif

If you have good scratch recipes I'd love them.

Oh- does anyone have a scratch recipe for strawberry cake without cake flour or gelatin? Or at least without gelatin? Can't seem to find a recipe without it.

Thanks so much.

White cake + strawberry icing fruit = strawberry cake.

And PS, Chai cake is fabulous! Especially with Bavarian creme filling. Like a chait latte.

Pistachio cake with white chocolate frosting is great. My recipe uses a mix though but I'm sure you could just add pistachio pudding to a white cake and nuts and coconut if you want it.

I served this to friends of mine last week and they are usually white and chocolate only people and even they liked it.

oh just thought of something. when i add jello to a cake recipe do i have to adjust the sugar? i was just thinking it might get a weird texture or something...

I've used strawberry "just fruit" jam in my icing for a wonderful flavor. I've also used regular strawberry jam. It can be a beautiful pink. It is great with a chocolate cake!

I don't adjust the sugar when using jello. If anything I add more milk. The texture is so silky and moist!!!
