    I'm looking for really delicious, and maybe unique? cake recipes that aren't wayyy tooo difficult. 

    Really moist, tasty, and appealing.  Such as:   cannoli? white chocolate? truffle? lemon-blueberry? ANYTHING DELICIOUS


    I love to bake, and hope to major in baking/pastry arts in college.  For now, I want some practice! So any good recipes that are a hit with your family/friends/clients would be wonderful. Thank you!

    I am on this board right now trying to find a post about a delicious cake that someone posted with pix as I recall months and months ago but can't find it.
    Since this format has changed, I'm a bit confused.
    If anyone knows of that cake that was posted here that all raved about the appearance of etc, please post the link so we can once again see it.
    I made a blueberry streusel cake for a singing rehearsal in November.  Oh my gosh was it good.  I followed what my mind told me to do, a basic white cake from scratch, fresh blueberry's and then followed how to make blueberry jam from Cooks Illustrated.  did the cake, incorporated the fresh blueberry's but the winner was the marbled blueberry jam I made in the marble effect throughout the whole cake.  tyical crumb streusel mix on top, with lemon zest in cake mix, lemon zest in jam and lemon zest in the crumb mix.

    i'd pick up the book "Rose's Heavenly Cakes" or the "Cake Bible" . Rose is the cake mastah!

    How can we help if you don't say what kind of cake?  Was it a yellow cake with  chocolate frosting?  I remember that one.  But it could have been any number of cakes, of any number of flavors! 

    As to the original question, I agree, Rose's cake bible is really good.

    my report on the cake.
    it's delicious.
    it's done.
    I've had my first taste.
    it's cooling and will then get frosted.
    thinking I'll do a butter cream cheese vanilla and powdered sugar frosting as well as your chocolate, but need more cocoa at the market.
    thanks again for this recipe..........
    my oven for sure isn't correct though.  I have a thermometer in there and it's registering all wrong, that may have aided in my blunder last time, this time, I watched like a hawk...

    ? Am I getting the message that I offended you?  I had no intention to.   If anything i was (very gently) teasing.  I think people recommend a great cake every couple of days here!  Kind of hard to imagine which kind of cake was the one that hit your eye.  Obviously you wouldn't have asked if you knew which cake but at least I imagined that if you saw a picture and had a yen for it you would have remembered a color, a flavor, something that would stick in your mind so we could identify it, otherwise how can we help?  Like was it a chocolate cake?  Blueberry cake?  Strawberry cake?  Yellow cake?  Coconut cake?  it could be anything.

    Happened to be so that I just finished baking a mocha cake, ready to be iced with a mocha-buttercream icing. Not difficult and you can do it within 60 minutes, including icing. Here is my recipe:

    Professional Chef
    30 mins seems a long time to beat the butter though

    Agree, Sabra. Would beat to start softening then add sugar and beat until light and creamy. (will still feel the granular sugar). Not long, 3-5 min at med, med-high. Stop and scrape sides and bottom once or twice. Creaming  warms the fats and will cause butter to break, resulting in a heavy, oily product.
