easy cake recipes

Welcome to my cake recipes page. At the bakery we say “it isn’t a celebration without a cake.” OK, that may be stretching it but a tasty and nicely decorated cake will add to any get-together! All of my cake recipes are tried and true as I have spent years perfecting these recipes at my bakery. Be assured if you follow a few simple steps you will have a ‘no-fail’ cake to add to your baking repertoire.

The recipes are divided into three sections:

  1. Base Cake Recipes: This section includes just the recipe for an individual cake, such as chocolate, vanilla, carrot, spice etc… Please visit my Filling and Frosting Recipes page to find the flavor you would like to pair with the cake.
  2. Assembled Cakes: This section includes cake and filling suggestions and will guide you through the process of baking the cake, making the filling/frosting and assembling the cake.
  3. Simple Cakes: This section includes basic, yet mouthwatering, recipes such as Bundt cakes, cakes that may be served on their own without adornment, etc…
