My husband has been sick so I decided to make him a homemade cake and guess what? It came out so pretty! It was Chocolate and the frosting was whipped white topping and I added some hersheys liquid cocoa to it and put sprinkles on it and it came out so good that there is one piece left!1 Woo Hoo!! I was so happy to see it come out right after so many attempts of failing! And I was happy that he like it!!! My daughter also like it as well! Yea!!!

I think my favorite cake is a pineapple upside down cake. I love the brown sugar with the pineapple and cherries and chopped pecans. There is a cherry chocolate cake you can try only takes four ingredients and then you can add a chocolate frosting. 1 chocolate cake mix, 2eggs, 1tsp vanilla and 1 can of cherry pie filling. Mix all in a bowl do not use egg beaters. it will be chunky looking. put in a 13x9 pan and bake 30 minutes at 350. Check your cake by sticking a knife in to make sure its baked through. It is one of the moistest cakes you will ever eat.

Well Happy Birthday early to your mother! I followed the instructions on the back of the Hersheys Cocoa box. The powdered kind in the little container I tried to find a picture but couldn't find one sorry.

That cake sounds really yummy. I haven't had chocolate cake in a long time it is my favorite and I love it topped with cream cheese frosting mmm so good. Glad your hubby and daughter both loved it, sounds amazing. I'm better at baking then I am cooking. Hope your hubby is feeling better.

Mmmmm, your cake sounds so good!! Nice to hear "scratch" success stories! I've tried many homemade cake recipes - some good, some bad. For me it seems like adding one extra egg to a cake recipe helps! My daughter has a birthday around the corner, so I will attempt a "new" cake recipe - hope she and the family likes it. Glad your family enjoyed yours!

Ah, you brave soul. I could never make a homemade cake. I'm not sure I could make a homemade anything. I just have bad luck at that kind of stuff. I get frustrated and quit. I prefer Betty Crocker do it for me. Bless her little heart. Well congrats on your success. Best Wishes! Oh, could you mail that last piece to me.
