Cake Project #13: Graham Cracker Cake. Well, sort of. I have a hard time calling anything "cake" that doesn't include flour. The chief ingredients here are ground grahams with a little coconut and eggs. Mocha whipped cream frosting, so it's not a take-to-work cake; seeing as how half MORE

Cake Project #12 Honey Spice Cake with Rum Glaze. Let's call it what it is. Pumpkin spice cake without the pumpkin. Tastes like a floury version of pumpkin pie. Which, because there is no pumpkin in this cake, leads me to the discovery that I can probably skip the expensive (and, last year,… MORE

Cake Project #11:  Dorie Greenspan's  Rum Soaked Vanilla Cakes. That's pleural. 2 cakes, one for home and one for work. Followed the recipe exactly except I boiled the rum with the syrup so as not to get fired for serving booze to my coworkers on the job. They all loved it, myself included.… MORE

Cake Project Cake #10 Butter Rum Cake or, as we are calling it, the pancake cake. Seriously, who publishes cake recipes that don't even taste like cake?! Maybe too busy drinking the rum. I like pancakes, though. So Hanna and I split a second piece. I f'd up on the glaze, though, and poured it… MORE

CakeProject Cake #9: Miss Saigon Cinnamon Almond Coffee Cake. Sorry guys,this one's destined to be a stay-at-home cake. Maybe because of its compact size, but something tells me it's not going to last long (notice on the hurridly taken photo the missing piece with the cake still on the MORE

Cake Project Cake #8: Argroves Manor Coffee Cake. I hesitated on this one as it calls for blueberrie and they are SO out of season, but I relented as I had a hankering for fruit. It is OK. The photo has a slice missing because part of the cake was left behind in the pan when I flipped it… MORE

Project Cake #7: Almond Sour Cream Pound Cake. To be honest, the main reason I have been making mostly pound cakes from this darn book is because they use so many eggs! But again I am stuck with a cake only Jimmy will eat. And it's a big cake. So we know where cake failures go ...to… MORE

Cake Project Cake #6: "Swedish Visiting Cake"...Come On Over! After the toasting of the almonds went badly, I was tempted to chuck the whole thing...but even with a hint of smokiness this cake was practically "gone in 60..." well, minutes. It didn't hurt that the cake was… MORE

Cake Project Update: Cake#5 "Martha Washington's Great Cake". My dear Martha, your cake royally sucks. From the tiresome folding and folding of all the that goes into this cake to the meringue that refused to stiffen (I swear, that has NEVER happened before!) this cake fails on so… MORE

Cake Project book...renewed! I am on a mission to find an actual to-die-for recipe from this book, excluding the ones with all the weirdo ingredients. May end up rewarding my guinea-pig coworkers with a proven to-die-for cake if I fail. Stay tuned! (or not) MORE
