I love the flavors of Tiramisu but not the lack of preservational qualities nor its homespun assembly. This is a presentation version of the same great dessert. It marries the elements of the original with a more glamorous finished product. This is called wedding cake because it makes a stellar cake for such celebrations but is the cake to turn to for a crowd pleasing ‘wow’ cake.  Double the recipe to make enough cake for a medium sized, layered wedding cake. It is not hard to do – but it is easier to make all the elements a day before and then assemble the next day. The cake lasts for 4-5 days, freezes well and would be nice with custard in the layers, instead of Neufchatel, if you preferred.

If you love chocolate chip cookies, you'll adore this cake. Chopped Tollhouse cookies create a unique streusel layer in the cake center and on top. Top with melted chocolate (milk chocolate, semi-sweet, and white chocolate if you please).This is the cake to bring to the office Fridays, pot lucks or your book club. Homemade chocolate chip cookies are best for this cake but store bought are absolutely fine.

This is an exceptionally easy, extremely tall, moist, gorgeous, oil-based chocolate cake. You cake hand mix or food processor make this fabulous cake. Pour and bake. It’s a hunk.Of course, you can also use melted unsalted butter for better flavor but oil-based cakes are good keepers.

This ultra tender, decadent cake combines some elements of a cheesecake, with a quick cake mix and then a dousing of Torani Creme Caramel Syrup. But I also tried it with Torani Cheesecake Syrup and Toffee Syrup and it was spectacular. Given has a ton of syrup selections, there is no end to what you can do nor the creative adventure I am now embarked on. I know it is a cake mix (and I am working on the scratch version) but it is divine.

This ultra tender (think Sara Lee Pound Cake but better/different), gold cake is reminiscent of famed Cayman Island Tortugas Rum Cake except it is a scratch cake, made with all natural ingredients – perfect to serve or give for the holidays.  This uses the British method of cake blending and results in a rich, deeply golden, moist, buttery coffee cake soaked through with a special Rum Glaze. Head over the to find a tin to pack this in and make some of your own baker’s best labels on your home printer.

A classic fruit cake - gently spiced, not too dark nor too light but good, slice by slice, tender crumb by tender crumb. It is actually wonderful fresh baked but improves, as most do, with aging.

Three Milk Cake is popular with Costa Ricans and Nicaraguans and anyone else who tries it. To taste it to to launch a lifetime addiction. This is a rich yellow cake that is soaked in a luscious milk, sugar rum glaze after it's baked. The result is something that brings together cake, pudding and cheesecake. It is simply delicious!

Bulk recipe - 4 or 5 rectangular freezer cake pans. Recipe can be doubled again, if required.
