Anyone who doesn't have the CMD should get it! I have baked several of the cakes she Dr's up. Everyone is very easy & very yummy!!! Old Fashion Cola Cake is my favorite! I use RC Cola instead because I don't like Coke. HummingBird Cake is delicious!! It's a little too moist for wedding cakes & stacked cakes but it is worth making!! It has way less ingredients in it then the "homemade" recipe I used to use. Tastes the same!

Good luck on your quest! I'm getting there! My CMD book has choclate, batter, & icing fingerprints all over it! It is very much used!!

Heather, what is the name (in the CMD book) of the cake you posted the photo of on June 28th, the praline one? Janice

CMD is one of the best and most used books I own. I've made the New York Style cheesecake,Kathy's Breakfast cake,Sock it to me cake,Chocolate Kahlua cake,and the Birthday cake cones. They were all great and well eaten..lol

Thanks, Heather, it looks delicious! I think it is great that you are trying these cakes, of course, as good as they all seem to be I guess it isn't too much of a hardship!

I appreciate your efforts, just wish I could help with the guinea pig rating! Janice

I made the incredible melted ice cream cake last weekend. I used Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream, as she recommended. Can't wait to try some other flavors. I think chunky monkey ice cream would be awesome. Talk about an easy and delicious cake! And, the chocolate marshmallow frosting tasted like fudge. Mmmmmm.....

TCturtleshell, I've been wanting to make that hummingbird cake. It sounds like a perfect cake for summer. Thanks for the review!

Is there a chocolate/peanut butter cake recipe in there? I have to make one next week. I was thinking I would just make a peanut butter filling, but if the recipe in CMD is easy, I'll just go for that. I'm going to look for it on my lunch break today. I wonder if Sam's Club has it?

our sams club does and its only 9 bucks. i know some store are different but i hope they have it so you can pick it up.

I can't remember if there's a peanut butter/chocolate cake but there's PB frosting that I used for a filling in a chocolate cake and it was great! There is also a chocolate CMD which may have it.

Hello Frosting Friends!!

My latest attempt was the Snickerdoodle Cake Pg 121 of the CMD. Not to shabby. This cake is based on a white cake mix with cinnamon/vanilla added.
This cake pulls together fast with minimal ingredients. The aroma from the cooking, OM MY GOSH icon_eek.gif The whole house smelled like Christmas.
The cake is moist and the color is a light speckled brown color, reminiescent of, but not as dark as, a spice cake.
The taste guinea pig results varied but were overwhelmingly positive.
My personal opinion and that of another poster here, is that is is more like an average spice cake than a true snickerdoodle. It was 'OK'.
The majority of my night shift guineas said that it truly did taste like a snickerdoodle and that they enjoyed that this cake was not as "sweet-sweet", the cinnamon gives it a more laid back, yet exotic taste.
One of my coworkers said that if she ever got married, THIS would be her wedding cake. She boxed up the last piece and took it home for her mother to try.
The frosting is a basic buttercream with cinnamon added that would work up nicely for decorating, I am going for taste with these trials so I do little to nothing with the decorating.
This cake takes a solid 4 to 4.5 Guinea Pigs. Enjoy! Thanx for support and your feedback also, I use these in my overall reviews.
