”A good collection of true and tried cake recipes not to be missed”
Welcome to my cake recipes page. Listed on this page are my collection of recipes which I have obtained from my mom, friends and various baking classes that I have attended over the years. Each recipe has been tried a few times and proven to yield good results.
Butter cakes and fruit cakes are the best types of cakes for decorating. Both types can be decorated with any icing or frosting, be it a light one or heavy ones like fondant. If you are planning to make a novelty cake, then butter cake, particularly the pound cake is the best. Using the basic butter cake or pound cake, you can literally add any flavour you want, be it chocolate, coffee, mocha, orange and others.
Fruit cakes, on the hand, are much preferred ones for weddings and Christmas as they tend to last longer.
Sponge cakes, due to their very light texture are not suitable for fondant and other heavy frosting like marzipan as it is difficult to hold shape under heavy icing. They go better with whipped cream or butter cream.
I am constantly trying out new recipes and will be adding on these recipes to this database once I am satisfied with the results.
