eat cake

my mother-in-law loaned me this book called Betty Crocker's Ultimate Cake Mix Cookbook. every recipe uses a cake mix but jazzes it up a bit to make your cake look/taste fancier. my style of cake making. today, i made a Chocolate Turtle Cake. you use a devil's food cake mix, pour half the batter in the pan and bake. then you take it out, pour caramel over it sprinkled with pecans and chocolate chips, then add the rest of the batter on top and bake some more. i don't know how the bottom half can possibly not be burnt to a crisp but it sure sounds good. and the other cakes i've made from this book have always been awesome. we'll see how it turns out. it's currently in the oven.

I have 2 books that are a variation on this theme. The cakes I make from them always get rave reviews!

Man, I don't think I know anyone else that loves cake as much as you. I swear you talk a lot about baking cakes! Do you by chance make ice-cream cakes? I like those better and I have a great easy easy recipe for one!
