My Mission-to make every CMD Cake! - Page 6

post #76 of 85
I have tried a couple out of the cupcake book. The lemon poppyseed cheesecake muffins were a big hit! My family loved them. I also tried the sweet potato muffins and I thought they were very good (my family isn't much on sweet potatoes!) I also tried the cookie dough cupcakes. They didn't turn out very well for me (the dough didn't sink enough). I think it may have been me!

I can't believe I just found this thread either! I love just reading through her books! She has some great tips!

Please keep sharing everyone!

Okay - I just made the chocolate kahlua cake for a get together this weekend. It was great! The cake was moist, texture was good and I don't think the kahlua overpowered the cake at all. I also did the kahlua glaze and it was fantastic with the cake. Just enough sweet to make the flavor pop, but again, not overpowering. Now, which CMD cake to make next....hummm.... icon_biggrin.gif

Edited because I need spell check!

I revived this thread because I absolutely love this book! I bake the red velvet for a friend who absolutely raves about it. I also made the milk chocolate pound cake which was also good. I plan on making the lemon next week for my MIL's birthday.

Anyone else try any others?

I recently tried the Key Lime Pie cupcakes. They were great! I did not use coconut flavoring though. I used vanilla in the cupcakes and fresh lime juice in the meringue. I also made the cotton candy cupcakes. They were pretty good. Please keep us posted!!!

I just bought the cupcake CMD book today at my school's book fair for $5! I'm so excited and can't wait to try some cupcake recipes.

I baked the milk chocolate pound cake for a school function and it was delicious. I used one large plain hershey bar which was cheaper than buying 4 smaller bars. The result was excellent!

Wow, I just bought this book yesterday! What I like about is that the recipes are not intimidating at all! Even the novice baker can make these recipes.

I am going to make couple of the cakes and I will post my results.

I just made the Hummingbird Cake for Father's Day and everyone thought it was, by far, the best tasting cake yet! It was so moist and the cream cheese frosting was terrific. One note, though - the cakes didn't rise very much. I guess that's what happens when you add the banana and pineapple. But man, it was YUMMY!

I made Susan's Lemon Cake for my MIL's birthday. EVeryone liked it except my oldest son who likes nothing but chocolate. But the general consensus was 3.5 stars out of 4. I found that the glaze did not really need the lemon zest. My mom was looking through the book and wants the peaches and cream cake for her birthday next month.

The yellow cupcake recipe from the cupcake doctor book also looks yummy, I'll be trying that this week.
