What kind of cake should I bake?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I've got an awful sweet tooth and I just can't decide! I've been craving pepermint cake all week so I thought I was going to make that. Then I got to thinking about pineapple upside down cake and an ooey gooey chocolate cake with a raspberry layer in the middle and ooey gooey chocolate icing too! I couldn't decide then so I went to Walmart and got everything I needed for all 3! So now I need help! What kind to make!?!

1. Pepermint cake: Made by mixing up the cake batter and then removing some. Pepermint extract and food coloring is added to what was removed. Then (in one of my cool fancy pans bundt pans) I put half of the batter, followed by the peppermint batter, followed by the rest of the batter. Then when it's done I make up a confectioners sugar/peppermint icing and drizzel it alllll over. At Christmas time I made it and covered it with crushed peppermint candies too. (but I didn't put peppermint extract in the icing.) Lemmee see if I can dig up a pic...

2. Pineapple Upside down cake. It's just plain good. Need I say more!?!

3. Chocolate cake. Raspberry jam layer in the middle, chocolate icing all over. I got the devils food cake mix for this one and fudgy icing!

My favorite cake in the world is SOOOO easy.

You get a box of betty crocker white cake mix. Make it to box dirrections, but add a container of Yogurt. Like yoplet strawberry, or blueberry. I have never tired it with vanillia or any other flavors, but I bet it would be good.

Bake it to box dirrections.

Get a tub of Cool Whip. Add another container of the same flavor yogurt mix well with the Cool Whip.

Use the cool whip as icing when the cake cools

OH MY GOSH, it is soooo good!!

My good friends sister wrote a book called 101 Things to do With a Box Cake. (Or cake mix, something like that) They actually did a whole series of things.

ANYWAY, this was a old family recipe and My friend Katrina ALWAYS made it for potlucks. IT is so dang good and easy.

I am going to have to try it with the vanilla yogurt!!! (my favorite to date it strawberry) I bet cherry would be good too. OH MY GOSH, I NEED TO GO TO WALMART!!!

I think both 1 and 3 sound yummy.. I'm just not a big pineapple fan. I think peppermint sounds pretty good. Maybe I just chose 3 too, because we just made a chocolate cake over here.
