which are the flavours of your favourite cake. How you prepare it and how many time you spend in the kitchen try to convince me that your cake is the best

I love cakes too, but I don't have much time to make cakes, so I guess my favourite cake is the "mix it all together and bake for 30 minuts cake". I used to do lemon and choclet cakes like these.

I make my mother's Victoria Sponge Cake recipe (don't ask me why it's named so, coz I don't know:)) It's yum and similar to a pound cake. This is one of the cakes I baked for my first yr anniversary. It was my first time so not perfect decoration..but tasted yumm!:)

Strawberry Chocolate Mousse Cake * 1 cup chocolate cookie crumbs * 3 tablespoons butter, melted * 2 pints fresh strawberries, halved * 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips * 1/2 cup water * 2 tablespoons light corn syrup * 2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream * 1 tablespoon white sugar 1. In a bowl, mix crumbs and butter to blend thoroughly. Press evenly onto bottom of 9 inch springform pan. Stand strawberry halves about pan, touching, side-by-side, pointed ends up, with cut sides against the side of pan; set aside. 2. Place chocolate chips in blender container. In small saucepan over medium heat, mix water and corn syrup. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute. Immediately pour over chocolate chips and blend until smooth. Cool to room temperature. 3. While chocolate cools, in a large mixer bowl, beat 1 1/2 c of the cream to form stiff peaks. With a rubber spatula, fold cooled chocolate into whipped cream to blend thoroughly. Pour into prepared pan. Level top. Points of strawberries might extend about the chocolate mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 4 to 24 hours. 4. Up to 2 hours before serving, in a medium mixing bowl, beat remaining 1 c cream to form soft peaks. Add sugar. Beat to form stiff peaks. Remove side of pan. Place cake on serving plate. Pipe or dollop whipped cream onto top of cake. Arrange remaining halved strawberries on whipped cream. To serve, cut into wedges with thin knife, wiping blade between cuts. Enjoy... I made this for a party at work. It was loved by all who ate it! Also it was very easy to make, especially on a hot day with no air conditioning. I added a pile of strawberries to the top sitting on top of whipped cream.. really beautiful. It's recipes like this that make the home baker look like a super-star baker! this is one of my favourite cake
