Cakes

Let them eat cake! Cakes are one of those ultimate comfort food desserts. From the classic birthday cake with all the candles and the homemade frosting to the more extravagant themed cakes covered with fondant. There are different flavors, chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and more. Different cultures have their unique spin on the classic cake. Then comes the decorating of the cakes. What technique will you use? What style of cake would you like to make? Maybe you want to create a cool Spiderman cake for a child’s birthday? Maybe you want to make a wedding cake for your friend? Or maybe you just want something quick and easy like a mug cake?

The world of cakes is a grand world indeed so much to learn and so much to offer. There are whole blogs dedicated to this topic as well as tv shows and the like. Journey with me as we explore this amazing genre of food.
