I'm a sucker for my mum's cakes. Especially her carrot cake with the cream cheese frosting (drool). Not a fan of 'store bought' cakes though.

Have to admit I do like carrot cake with plenty of cream cheese frosting on the top and thick layers inside.

I love Coffee and Walnut, because SWMBO eats the cake and leaves the Icing........ my waistline does not agree.

I'm in. I couldn't find a strike banner with Nutek on it, so I've made him a General.

I have long thought that cake in itself (apart from Christmas cake) is merely a vehicle for the topping.

This view appears borne out by the last few posts.

Even Christmas cake can benefit from some tlc.

Ew no...I can’t abide coffee flavoured things. I like coffee as a drink, but anything coffee flavoured .

A cup of tea that would keep its shape if you removed the cup.

Can I make mine wheaten bread though, I don't like raisins

Zucchini/Courgette cake done the same way is very nice too.

So excuse my ignorance because I had no idea who that was, but a reverse image search tells me it's the same actress who played the woman Alex beat to death with a giant sculpture of a cock in A Clockwork Orange. So there you go.

One hasn't seen that movie, and after reading your post one is rather glad of that fact.
