Ooh, I just remembered a cake I had at work last year, made by someone from the Philippines. It was made with purple yams and it was fantastic.

I LOVE almond cake but I almost always hate plain buttercream frosting. I don't know what it is. It always tastes like straight butter or straight sugar to me. It's slightly more palatable if it's chocolate, but even then. If cream cheese frosting is an option, I will always go with that. I even prefer icing (the kind that's basically all confectioner's sugar) to buttercream frosting.

A few people I know make a cake that looks exactly as you described. The recipe for it is on the back of the Hershey's Cocoa can. It has been for years. That might not be it, but it's worth a shot.

*my phone is killing me. we had to ask my uncle for the recipe many times before he broke down and told us. people seem to act a bit secretive with that one.*
Thanks fifi! I might have tried that years ago but always worth another shot!
Jeep, I wonder if she had a secret ingredient in her recipe. For instance, I read a trick years ago in a King Arthur Flour cookbook about adding a teaspoon of instant espresso powder to chocolate cake/dessert recipes -- it doesn't make the dessert have a mocha flavor, it just intensifies the chocolate flavor and does give a more distinct taste especially in a chocolate cake.

It looks a lot like a Dobos torte but without the caramel.

Giant Eagle (supermarket chain) has lots of different frostings/icings. But the almond flavor of their almond cake is so distinct, I think a more flavorful icing/frosting would be too busy. Pl asked me if it was marizan (almond candy) icing.

It was soooo good. And I normally hate bday cake.

Ray Lewis from the Ravens. He's been their star player for a while and very vocal.

When he was in Atlanta in 2000 during the superbowl, two people were stabbed to death and from what I've read he was the murderer but somehow got off the hook.

or maybe, just maybe he actually didnt do it.

Carrot cake with pineapple & walnuts is my most favorite thing ever! Most other cakes I can leave.

Much more of a pie/tart girl!

We always thought so. I've tried coffee, every kind of chocolate, cinnamon, booze, you name it. I've sometimes wondered if she added some secret 'herbs'. wink wink.

^ "Secret herbs"....haha. Ooooo, have you ever had one of those chocolate mayonnaise cakes? (lawrd, I hope Saria doesn't see this ) They're very dark and moist and also have a distinct flavor. Okay, I'll stop obsessing about your aunt's cake now. Sorry!

Japanese cotton soft cheesecake. A featherlight sponge cake made with cream cheese. A cross between a chiffon cake and cheese cake.

Bwavy, haha. That's ok. I've been obsessing over my aunt's cake for a couple decades now. We've tried the mayo cake. Not it.

I made a Japanese cheesecake for the first time last year (recipe from Saria). It was so good.

That Smith Island cake is beautiful. It does look like a Dobosh torte.

the ingredient consists of mayo, usually Duke's.




Mayo (duke's) can be used in anything!

I use it to make grilled cheese, perfect grilled cheese everytime!

Haha speaking of dads' favorite cakes...

Every year for his birthday, my dad begs me to make boxed chocolate cake covered in icing made from chocolate pudding mixed with Cool Whip.

That thump you just heard was Saria passing out. STOP READING THIS THREAD ALREADY, SARIA! It will only cause you pain.

I can see why he likes it, though. It's yummy. Also, he's one of 9 kids... That kind of a cake would've been a delicacy!

Once or twice I've tried making something different, or buying a cake from a bakery, and he gets totally angry about it!
