Old-Fashioned Chocolate Cake

Hey, you! (Yeah, you!) Summer's coming. Let's go to the playground! Oh, or maybe the roller rink. Or both. Sorry...this cake makes me feel like I'm about 12 years old again. And I'm loving...

Strawberries & Cream Cake

Cream-Cheese Frosting

This is another one from my mother. It's just the right kind of tangy frosting to top any kind of apple or carrot cake. It's also really good on chocolate cake. I always make this...

Very Special Batman Cake

There's a joke between The Angry Chef and one of our friend's boys. It goes something like this: "I'm Batman!" "No, I'M Batman." Rinse. Repeat. Late last year, we decided to put one of my...
