Cakes are synonymous with celebrations—birthdays, weddings, Christmas (fruit cake), Mardi Gras (King Cake).
Truth be know, I’m more of a pie person than a cake enthusiast. If given a choice, I select a fruity pie to a heavily iced cake. Even so, I recognize the artistry that goes into turning out a beautiful, tasty cake worthy of a special occasion.
Icing on the Cake
Cake comes in many forms. There are box cakes, scratch cakes, themed cakes, multi-layered cakes as well as single layered, iced or non-iced, cup cakes, cheesecake, and fruity or boozy cakes.
I checked my photo file for “cakes,” and found I had several hundred! I picked a few baked by family and friends, that were memorable. (Mouse over photos for caption.)
