[We continue to update the “Top 10” series of posts with cakes!]
It took me quite awhile to come around on the subject of cake. Growing up, I stopped requesting traditional cake for my birthday somewhere around middle school. My mom always asked what we’d like, and by then I no longer found plain birthday cake appealing and began asking for either ice cream cakes or cheesecakes. Now, I still love both of those options, but once I started to dabble in baking, I found that cakes can be totally amazing, especially if you enjoy getting creative!
Needless to say, I now revel in making cakes at home. Below is an updated list of my 10 favorite cake recipes… Enjoy!
