Some things you just can’t mess with and these Classic Cakes will prove that.
Black Forest Cake is classically made with layers of Chocolate Cake, Whipped Cream, and Maraschino Cherries.
Hummingbird Cake is a more recent Classic. Similar to Carrot Cake, this southern delight is made with cinnamon, bananas, pineapple, and walnuts. It’s served with a cream cheese frosting.
Opera Cake has a rich history just like it tastes. This French cake is made of 3 layers of Joconde (almond flavored sponge soaked in coffee syrup), coffee buttercream, and chocolate ganache
