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 even prefer icing (the kind that's basically all confectioner's sugar) to buttercream frosting.

My late Aunt Nenan's chocolate cake with chocolate icing. It was nearly black in color, super moist, and had a distict flavor. She died without ever giving anyone the recipe (I begged) and I've never been able to copy it. I've tried for years and years. I can still taste it and still miss it. : (

*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.*

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

^ "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.

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

I use it to make grilled cheese, perfect grilled cheese everytime!
Duke's! Oh, how I miss Duke's mayo!!

Chocolate mayonnaise cake is my dads absolute favorite.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
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!
