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.

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!!!
