I've printed off a few, but haven't tried them yet. I'm especially looking forward to the one from Big Bob, the poor man whose cake fell apart. I remember the judges absolutely raving over his cake. Yumm!

Oh, I definately intend to try them... icon_biggrin.gif I have made the White Velvet Cake many times, with several variations. Rebecca sub'd buttermilk, and I certainly want to try it too...

I've made the Southern Lemon Butter Cake from Ep. 1 and it was GREAT. Here's the link.

I also tried the Tahitian Vanilla Butter Cake with Salted Caramel Cream but didn't care for it, it was too dense and greasy (maybe I did something wrong).

I read through some of them....curious...Norman Davis' French Vanilla cake has no vanilla...or flavoring of any kind....in it. Wonder if it's a typo?

You are absolutely right... icon_surprised.gif He won the tasting judging too, didn't he? Maybe I will send him an email to find out if the recipe is correct....

Thanks for the website info. Is there any way to find out the winners in the taste tests from the other episodes? That would be nice to know.

That's awesome! I had no idea....I'm on my way there now. Whoo hoo!

It's still awesome - but I noticed they don't list the size of the pan or the what the recipe yields. Oh well. I guess you can't get everything you want. I'll be happy with the recipes. And I'll figure it out as I go.

I was going through the recipes and some things I have never heard of and have no idea where to find it...

Orange Compound?

Vanilla Paste?

Anyone know where to get this stuff?

Alrighty!

I just got the orange blossom buttermilk pound cake out of the oven!

Very simple to make, and I tried a little bit off of the lil hump on the top of the cake once i got it out of the oven.....yummy!! Its a very nice orange taste but not too over powering.

I give it two thumbs up! icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the rating.. What size pan did you bake it in? It really sounds wonderful...

I doubled the recipe and I had enough to fill three 8inch round cake pans (maybe not as full as i normally would) but they baked wonderfully and from what I tasted very yummy icon_smile.gif

The winning cakes from the episodes so far are week #1 Simply Cakes by Richard Medina #2 Yummy Yellow Cake by Bob Brougham #3 Chocolate Caramel Decadence by Clemence Gossett #4 Buttermilk Orange Blossom Pound Cake by Carrie Biggers #5 Chocolate Chip Espresso Cake by Greg Marsh #6 French Vanilla Cake by Norm Davis. The #s are the episodes they were on. Do you suppose these recipes have all the ingredients listed or do you think they have intentionally left out some things, you know....by mistake.

Did anyone else notice Carrie's Cake Mix Plus at the bottom of the Buttermilk Orange Blossom recipie? I don't see that she uses this in the main recipie, so is it just a bonus 'here's what I do to make a mix special' recipie? Hmmm... icon_confused.gif

Rebeca's cake says 2--8" rounds, so did Bob's.

Hmmm, on Carrie's cake mix version there is no OJ. I would think that helps w flavor. And would you still use butter? It says follow directions for eggs & oil. It does raise questions.

I can't imagine a cake without flavoring! Buttermilk & butter I don't think would do it for me, but I could be wrong. And i thought his was coconut, maybe that was the filling?

Norman's did have a coconut filling....but I am with you....I think something has been left off the recipe. Since it is called a French Vanilla cake, there should be something to impart a vanilla flavor to the cake. Someone was going to email Norman about it....don't know if they did or not.

I have to try this recipe!

Has anyone tried Norm's French Vanilla recipe? I also noticed that it's missing salt and baking powder (if any is used). I'm also a little confused about adding the ingredients at the end. I'm assuming you're suppose to alternate the flour and buttermilk?

I thought the graham cracker cake looked delicious. The recipe calls for graham cracker crumbs and graham cracker compound. The same for the buttercream, it asks for marshmallow fluff and marshmallow compound.....what does that mean? I don't understand what a compound is.

Hey there,
I'm Mike elder, the winner of episode one, and there's alot to say about the recipes! Mine for instance is lacking the 2 cups flour, and more. I should dig it out and put it on here. Also (an insider note) the cakes used during the show may or may not be what the recipe produces.... ours was to contain real rum! we shopped for a week and bought hundreds of dollars of rum, only to be told days before that one of the judges was allergic to rum! Oh the magic of television! LOL
WATCH MORE UCO!!!!
THANKS
MIKE

Thanks for letting us we aren't crazy Mike icon_smile.gif Just curious how they can say they are the competitor's recipes if they aren't?

They are the recipes, as much as the contestants want you to know them! LOL Like anything there's tons of insider info that doesn't get shared... Our cake was 100 % the same as the tasting cake... Everyone on the beach loved it! would have rather used real RUM!
