Building a baking masterpiece can sometimes mean layering it on thick.
Yes, that means making a fantastic layer cake, which is something we love to do. Some of our favorite cakes are flavor sensations stacked high. These baked beauties are just as luscious as they are lustrous, so you'll want to make some just to see how beautifully yours stack up. Start with a Strawberry Dream Cake, which truly is a dream. Mascarpone cheese, vanilla and almond extract combine in a light and sensational package. Or, try a Red Velvet Layer Cake: the combination of crimson layers stacked tall and covered in white frosting creates a visual delight. If you love the taste of carrot cake, you won't be able to get past Mama Dip's Carrot Cake.
This Carolina classic can be made ahead, and frozen for up to a month, so there's no reason not to have these ready to put together in your own sweet time. Or, pile high a Caramel Cake—we're pretty sure its combination of tastes will showcase your baking skills. Top all these treats off with The 50th Anniversary Cake: six layers of vanilla-almond cake covered in buttercream frosting.
