  • Bailey's Irish Cream Cake

    Make a boxed chocolate cake mix, substituting 1/4 cup of the water with Bailey's Irish Cream. (the alcohol will burn out during baking). I chop up about 4 Andes Candies and add to the mix. Bake as directed. I frost with green tinted cream cheese frosting. Decorate with a couple cut up Andies Candies.

  • This is a super super moist cake. Since the frosting is speckled, it is pretty enough that you don't need to bother decorating.

  • Better than Sex cake

    Bake a German chocolate cake according to box directions. After it's partly cooled, use a wooden spoon handle or dowel or skewers to poke the cake full of holes. Pour a can of sweetened condensed milk over the cake and let it soak in. Pour a small jar of caramel ice cream topping over the cake and let it soak in. Warming the milk & caramel makes them easier to pour. Put in the fridge for a few hours. "Frost" with 8 oz of thawed Cook Whip. Top with drizzles of chocolate syrup & caramel, OR toffee bits (crushed Heath candy bars or the bag of Heath bits in the baking aisle), OR crushed Butterfinger, OR mini chocolate chips, OR you can leave it plain, just the white-ness. Keep refrigerated. German chocolate cake is a must, other chocolate flavors aren't as good. Best if made the day before you need it.
