What is your favorite kind of cake? Any one have a easy cake recipe?

I'm looking for an easy cake recipe to make for my kids to celebrate the first day of school. Usually we buy a Carvel Ice Cake but they've gotten way to expensive, so I thought I would make one instead. Oh, my 4yr old is allergic to strawberries so there goes all the yummy ideas for anything involving strawberries.

  • Ok, this has been a huge hit this summer and so easy and the kids love it... chocolate eclair cake...get 2 packages instant vanilla pudding (or banana would be good too) and a container of cool whip, mix pudding with 3 cups milk and mix, add cool whip and beat for 2 mins...take a 9x13 inch pan, put a layer of graham crackers, spread 1/2 the pudding mix, then another layer of graham crackers, then another layer of pudding then one more layer of graham crackers. Then take a can of chocolate frosting and microwave for 30 seconds and mix it real good and pour/spread over the top. Cool in the fridge for a few hours. AWESOME and so easy.

  • My favorite cake:

    Bake choc. cake in a 9x13. pull it out when it is hot and poke holes in it with end of a wooden spoon. Pour 1 can eagle brand milk on it, and 1 jar carmel topping on it. It will soak into the hot cake. Cool completely and spread on cool whip. Sprinkle toffee pieces on top (or chruched up heath bar) soooo good!

  • Omigosh, one year someone donated a pistachio Christmas cake to our church, and I will NEVER love another cake!! Sad part is, that was 5 yrs ago, and I still haven't found a recipe or who sells them :-( I would suggest that if you could find one. You'll hate every other cake after having one!
