I have a few but the top of my list is my Thin Mint cake that won 2nd place at the Austin Cake Show in the Jazzed up cake mix division. Could have won first I bet but lost 2 points in appearance due to me not decorating it. I was told that they don't take decorating into consideration on the taste testing so because I was pressed for time I just did a last minute garnish on top of it. All my other scores were perfect so darn it! LOL! I think I will add it on here in the recipes area. I also love my pina colada cake, I know, not a novel idea but I thought it was exceptionally good.

I wouldn't really call it my favorite, but I'm a sucker for a devil's food mix cake (not even doctored up) with buttercream.

My customers' favorite is WASC.

I just put in my recipe today, not sure how long it takes for it to show up in the recipes list but it is called Pina Colada Cake by Angie.

Where alot of people make their mistake on that they put too much of the pineapple flavor into it and not enough coconut flavor. In my recipe you can either use the rum or leave it out. entirely up to you. But I think making sure there is a little more coconut to the flavor with the acidity and tartness of the pineapple in the background.

I saw this recipe yesterday following a link in Jennifer's newsletter. It sounds amazing and I'm glad to know whose it is. The names on the Bake Shop website don't quite match the ones on CC. icon_biggrin.gif

Hi MacaMom,
First of all, Thank you for sharing great recipes.
I am wondering how you keep the frosted cake without refrigeration?
I love to use cream cheese, mouse or fruits for fillings.
But if the party is outside or fondant covered cake, I can't use those delicious fillings. so I always use buttercream or IMBC or store bought
jam like fillings.
I never ever put MMF coverd cake in the refrigerator.
I am too scared to mess up.
Thranks

Thanks! To be honest I don't know what all the flavor combos are listed -- I just listed the links to the google docs and the threads they came from. If you scroll through the thread others have updated it. Melvira is writing a CC cookbook but I haven't heard much from her on that lately. You might PM her to see how it's going. Good luck! icon_biggrin.gif

My favorite to date was the top tier of the wedding cake I made a couple of weeks ago. It was my doctored white cake mix cake with white chocolate mousse filling . . . buttercream frosting. My friend started calling it 'better than crack' cake LOL!!! icon_lol.gif

I am struggle all about mousse fillings.
Is your filling need to be refrigerated?
I always want to use mousse fillings but if I use fondant, I can't use mousse!!
Thanks.

If you go to the 2009 Austin Cake show site, all the winning recipies are there. My thin mint cake recipe is on there. but I also posted it here, but it isn't showing yet. It usually takes a couple of weeks before your recipies are posted.

Without doubt my favourite mix is Orange & Poppyseed.
It makes a really good cake to work on & decorate.
It also tastes very nice & bakes very easily (not tempermental at all).
A lot of the cakes I make & decorate are for people with serious allergies to chocolate and/or dairy products.
The Orange & Poppyseed mix I use is excellent for these allergy people.

O.K. call me dumb but.... What is WASC???

I thought this thread was about box mix cake mixes? Are all the ones mentioned here started with a box mix??

I recently tried a new box mix and it was delicious, tasted almost like homemade. It is the Duncan Hines Decadent Desserts Carrot Cake Mix. If you look in my pictures I have picture of it decorated, but also have a picture of it cut and of a slice so you can see how much it looks like homemade on the inside. Had no problem with it holding together and decorating it. It has a pouch of carrots and raisins that you re-hydrate (not sure if it had coc. can't remember. ) I did add chopped Walnuts to it and that just made it even better.

Michellet62260, my Orange & Poppyseed cake is definitely is a box mix cake.
Sometimes I leave it as it is & other times I add my own bits & pieces to it.

I would like to know what WASC is also, please.
I sometimes find that terms frequently used across the seas are not very well known here in Australia.
Many thanks.
