What flavor are you looking for? I would definitely check out the cakes Deb has over on Smitten Kitchen. I’ve made a bunch of them (the yellow birthday cake, the hazelnut brown butter cake, the cakes in the wedding cake she made were all wonderful.)

Good call, Lilyfaith. I’ve never baked anything from Smitten Kitchen and had it be less than divine. She also has a tutorial on baking wedding cakes on her blog.

I definitely third smitten kitchen.  She also has some tips for baking layer cakes that are really helpful!  She is a kitchen goddess!

I absolutely LOVE this coconut tres leche cake from Chow.com. It has to stay in the pan until you serve it (not a pretty iced cake) but it’s ridiculously delicious and I get rave reviews every time I make it. In general, everything I’ve made from chow.com is awesome!

Check out howtoeatacupcake.net Also, you can make any cupcake recipe into a cake recipe. They all started as cake recipes anyway.

This isn’t fancy, but it will get you tons of compliments. I’ve made a million cakes from scratch, but this one (pardon the pun) takes the cake!! People go ga-ga over it’s moist, chocolatey goodness!

The only thing I changed is that I use 1/2c of oil instead of an entire (!) cup 🙂

I just made these, but we had so much batter left over that we made 2 small cakes out of them.  They were delicious, but use a mellow roast coffee, nothing too bitter 🙂  We definitely did not use the frosting recipe as all the reviews said that it did not set correctly, so we made a different frosting.

Ok, my Darling Husband loves strawberry cake and it is quite common at his family functions. I must say Ms. Paula Dean herself has a new, very easy strawberry cake recipe on her website. You can either do cake or cupcakes (as I did). YUM YUM!
