Traditionally this type of cake is called a “dump cake”. I was lamenting to a friend that I couldn’t give my cake such a hideous title and he informed me his mom called this type of cake an “earthquake cake”. Doesn’t that sound SO much more appetizing than a dump cake? Hence, this is an earthquake cake.

I have to say, you haven’t truly lived until you bake six Pop-Tarts into a yellow cake loaf and then nearly eat the whole thing in a weekend. And I don’t regret it one bit(e).

“Baking” this icebox cake was a lesson in reading directions, not just skimming them, but reading them carefully. I didn’t do that when I made this cake.

There are tons of cake stand DIYs out there - probably because they are so super easy to make and nice to use - but this one really takes the cake. Puntastic! Haha! Anyway, a peruse through my house you will know how much I love owls (and er… cake) so I will be on the lookout on the weekend for a cheapo one I can pick up from a $2 store. Then I just need a delicious pink cake to top it with!
Pretty, pretty cake stand
My leopard print cake post is scheduled to publish tomorrow morning. Here’s a little something to tide you over.
It was my dad’s birthday a few weeks ago. And I recently baked him a pistachio cake for Father’s Day. Luckily, Dad has an adventurous palette, so I wasn’t at a loss for ideas for his birthday. He likes spicy stuff and so do I, so I knew we’d both enjoy a flourless chili chocolate cake.

A few weekends ago my boyfriend, Chris, and I spent the weekend in Bridgehampton. I know, we’re very chic people. Anyway, I needed a cake to bring to our hosts’ home that would survive the train trip so I chose my go-to when a cake needs to travel – a Bundt!
