What is your favorite type of cake, and why?

October 24, 2007 4:19pm CST
Personally, I love chocolate cake...the more chocolate the better! Ideally it should have something like raspberry jam in between layers, but if that's not an option, more chocolate will do. ;) My other favorite cake is shortcake with strawberries on top. Perfect summer cake. How about you?

Oh don't get me wrong, I'll never turn down a piece of cake, regardless of what flavor it is! It's one of the most perfect foods, in my humble opinion. ;)

Only for lunch or dinner? ;) Freshman year of college I'd eat cake for breakfast. Of course, that's why I put on 20 pounds that year!

Carrot Cake, minus the frosting. I mean, I love the frosting but it's super duper rich and sweet and too much to eat.. But I LOVE love the carrot cake. Its my favorite kind. Strawberry shortcake is great too. I'm really not much a fan of chocolate though, i know i'm weird.

I love carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. In fact, I'm craving some right now! Do you like your carrot cake with nuts or without?

I love carrot cake, fruit breads, all of those good things with a bit of butter or margarine, especially if they're warmed... Also good is whipped cream sweetened with a little powdered sugar... it almost has that frosting flavor..

well cream cheese frosting is what comes with most carrot cake. it's weird to be made with anything else. I don't like sweet stuff. I've never been a sweet eater.

Wow! I never noticed how much I enjoyed cake until I started to think about the discussion question. I like chocolate cake and carrot cake, but most of all I love yellow cake with chocolate frosting. I enjoy it so much that I find myself icing the cake too early most times, so the frosting melts!

There's a simple solution to that: just frost the cake a second time! ;) Yellow cake with chocolate frosting is good. When I was a kid that was the cake we always got for birthdays, so it brings back fond memories.

Chocolate Angel Food cake, with dark orange-flavored chocolate grated on it while its still a bit warm... Hun can have this on his diabetic diet, so its a winner!

What makes it diabetic-friendly? Is it made with sugar substitute, or is it just low in sugar? Either way, the combination of chocolate and orange flavors is aleays delicious.

Birthday cake! - Have some!
Angel food cake is mostly air... it isn't as dense as regular cake, so there are fewer calories per serving. The dark chocolate has a more intense flavor so you don't use as much. And with a spoonful of unsweetened whipped cream, this is completely delicious!

Definitely chocolate. But I'm to the point where I rarely if ever have it.

But isn't there proof that chocolate is good for you? ;)
