What's your favorite cake?
This isn't one of those silly polls. A friend who does catering but doesn't bake has asked me to do some cake baking for her. We're not talking wedding or birthday cakes with fondant and intricate piping. These would be home style cakes; but what flavors to put on her menu? Have you got a favorite? Maybe a particular cake and frosting combo that would catch your eye. Help me come up with a few wonderful ideas. For example what would you think of a banana spice cake with peanut butter frosting?
