HI! I am making a couple of cakes for playgroup, most of these people have no idea that I decorate cakes, so there could be a few new potential customers. I was wondering what to make that is a bit different. ie not chocolate cake. I have made the lemon pound cake for them, and they loved that. Any ideas? What are your favorites?
my favorite cake is red velvet. didn't even know about this cake until a year ago!! I love it!!
how are you going to decorate it? or are you looking for ideas on that too?
I'd suggest that you get The Cake Mix Doctor's book.. she has so many yummy recipes in there!
I think you should make 2 different flavors. People have always loved the butter recipe cakes. I like to add mexican vanilla because it gives it an even better flavor. I would maybe also do strawberry. If you think they might like coconut...DH makes a new mix and it is really good!
As for your decorations...you could make one with happy faces and maybe do the other one with a fall theme. Or you could do something general with dots or swirls.
my favs are a cream cheese pound w/strawberry filling and a hazelnut cake w/choco hazelnut filling. the cake mix doc. book is a good suggestion. LOTS of good stuff in there!!
Those are ADORABLE!!!
What is your email and I'll send you the recipes. Do you want the filling recipes also??
I'm with Traci, Strawberry and Coconut! Also a Cinnamon cake. Those are my big sellers here, and not easy to find anywhere else so people really like them!
I love the decorations. Can't wait to see the finished product. Yes the cake mix doctor have many many ideas. Good Luck.
I just sent them to you both. let me know if you have any questions.
..anything "pumpkin flavored" would be great this time of year!
i just sent them.
i'm not sure where i got the recipes from anymore. i have collected so many of them. but here is a website I use ALOT!!! it is not just for cakes...it has a little bit of everything.
but i think is where the cream cheese pound cake came from.
You can get some of the cake mix doctor's recipes on her website. (www.cakemixdoctor.com). I love her first book! The book on chocolate cakes, I find, has a lot of the same recipes as in the first book, so I don't use it as much. I love your decorations!!
This is a really good site. http://www.recipegoldmine.com/cakemixcake/cakemixcake.html
That DOES look like a great site! Thanks for sharing it!! Tammy
Your so very welcome!
