What kind of cake do you want?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (30955points) August 8th, 2010

Have you seen those TV shows where the bakers create fantastically shaped cakes? People come up with some amazing ideas.

Let your imagination run wild. What kind of cake would you want?

Most imaginative cake I’ve seen – my mom’s birthday cake for one of her birthdays when she was a child. I’ve seen only photos of it, but it was amazing. It was a two layered carousel cake with the second tier supported by the horses poles. There were actual horses on the poles. The poles were candy canes and the horses were make of sugar and completely edible. Decorative icing all over and, from what I’ve been told, it was an ice cream cake.

I wouldn’t want a cake. I don’t really like cake. Give me a cheesecake or a fruit pie and I’m all over that, though.


I just want one of those old-fashioned cakes that mothers across America used to bake in the good ol’ 1950s and early 1960s, you know, those ones that were made with real butter and icing sugar, and from real chocolate or vanilla. None of these mass-produced commercial phoney cakes that you find in big supermarkets today, made from ingredients most people can’t even pronounce, palm oil or margarine, food coloring, and a host of other synthetic chemicals and preservatives. Just give me a good old-fashioned, double cake with a lot of icing! Yummy!! :D

@Allie Your Mom was very lucky to have lived during that time.

I love Food Network Challenge when they bake cakes. I’ll take an ice cream cake in the shape of an ice skating rink, with ice skaters (must have a few that have fallen on their ass), surrounded by snow and tall pines.

Instead of a traditional birthday cake for my parties when I was growing up, my mother served little fudge-iced cake squares that came from a small mom & pop bakery in Fort Worth called Kleinshmidt’s, now long gone. They were kind of like square Hostess cupcakes without the fake cream filling inside… except, they were made from a baker’s ingredients, not those of a factory, and they were DELICIOUS . God, I haven’t thought of that in years.

Simple. Yellow cake with chocolate icing.

I’d want a TARDIS/police callbox cake, with little 2nd, 4th and 10th Doctors peeping out the door. Vanilla sponge cake, chocolate ganache filling, (not too much), and cream cheese frosting (not too thick).

How about a urinal cake?

Unfortunately, I’ve fallen victim to one of those vanilla and fondant cake bastards.
It was pink, with black polka dots… Come on, now.

I don’t think I’d want one of these cakes because they taste TERRIBLE! Where’s the frosting!? (mmm. frosting.)

@pearls, that is always and ever my favorite too.

A cake shaped like a T-rex with icecream in the middle.

From Dino Kartsonakis’ 24 Carrot Cake Bakery in Branson, Missouri, his carrot or Italian Creme cake. I’ll never get one: $50.
The little ones are $11 or a little bit more.

Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte.

@hawaii_jake – Leider so viele Kalorien !

AstroChuck's avatar

Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte wäre gut, wenn Sie verlassen würden die Kirschen.

mattbrowne's avatar

Du möchtest eine Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte ohne Kirschen?

Dann wäre eine Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte gut, wenn Sie die Kirschen weglassen würden.

AstroChuck's avatar

Yes. It would be fine then. Of course then it wouldn’t really be a Black Forest cake, would it.

No, you can get them all across Germany ;-)
