Peach Melba Ice Cream Cake: This cake is a frozen interpretation of the legendary French dessert Peach Melba. It combines fresh peach puree, ice cream, and raspberry sorbet with a decorative layer of sliced raspberry jellyroll cake.
Red, White, and Blue Layer Cake | Cook's Country
Red, White, and Blue Layer Cake: Colorful layers of red velvet cake make the perfect foundation for this Independence day dessert. After assembling the cake by alternating layers of cake and whipped cream filling, we garnished it with blueberries and strawberries.
Lemon Lover's Cake | Cook's Country
Lemon Lover's Cake: A lemon layer cake is an elegant way to greet spring. Like the season, lemon cake can resemble either a lion or a lamb. With potent citrus punches in the cake, frosting, lemon curd topping, and candied lemon garnish, our cake positively roars.
Fruit Cocktail Cake: Inspired by the Del Monte classic, we processed canned pineapple, peaches, pears, and maraschino cherries into yellow cake batter and garnished the resulting tube cake with a blanket of lightly sweetened whipped cream and a crown of mixed fruit. The cake makes the perfect showpiece for a summer buffet.
Banana Split Cake: Festive ice cream cakes are always a summer favorite. Our version duplicates the flavor of a banana split made with strawberry ice cream-with the added twist of ice cream sandwiches. Topped with gooey hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts, and a cherry (if you like), this is a cake you'll go bananas for.
Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream Cake | Cook's Country
Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream Cake: We transform an ice cream truck treat into a special occasion ice cream cake. We dip ladyfingers in an orange gelatin mixture reinforced with bittersweet orange marmalade. A layer of white cake encircled with the ladyfingers anchors the operation, and layers of orange sherbet and vanilla ice cream complete the dessert.
Grasshopper Ice Cream Cake | Cook's Country
Grasshopper Ice Cream Cake: Cool mint and chocolate ice creams with a dark chocolate cookie crust and whipped cream are the ultimate summer cool-down.
Apricot-Almond Meringue Cake | Cook's Country
Apricot-Almond Meringue Cake: This spectacular pavlova-inspired cake sandwiches fresh apricots and whipped cream between multiple layers of crisp, nutty meringue.
Cherry Chocolate Chip Cake | Cook's Country
Cherry Chocolate Chip Cake: A homespun cake that tastes like chocolate-covered cherries. We found that the cherries in canned pie filling taste better than pretty maraschino cherries, which we dipped in melted chocolate and reserved for garnishing the cake.
Smith Island Cake | Cook's Country
Smith Island Cake: Smith Island, Maryland, may be a small place, but it boasts a cake with a reputation so grand, it recently became the official state dessert. With its multiple cake layers and rich, fudgy frosting, Smith Island Cake looks impressive, yet it doesn't require the precise cutting of layers that you might think.
Neapolitan Bundt Cake: This cake originally ran as part of a Betty Crocker cake mix ad campaign in the 1970s, offering the flavors of Neapolitan ice cream: vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. We tweaked the recipe to accommodate a homemade cake and boosted the chocolate and strawberry flavors as well. Now this is a cake worth revisiting.
Daffodil Cake | Cook's Country
Daffodil Cake: Like the flower it's named for, this orange-kissed angel food cake is scented and sweet, with golden yellow and pale orange hues.
Pink Lemonade Cake | Cook's Country
Pink Lemonade Cake: A tender chiffon cake with lemony cream cheese frosting and a pretty-in-pink hue. For a final touch, a ring of sugared lemon slices—pink, of course—circles the cake.
Chocolate Turtle Cake: For the caramel topping on our cake we opted to melt caramel candies with some cream and a pinch of salt. Resting the cake in the refrigerator before serving made it sturdier and easier to slice.
Pink Azalea Cake: A three-layer white cake swathed in billowy seven-minute icing. It's the pretty pink hue-of the middle cake layer, the frosting, and the fruit-nut filling-that gives the cake its name and makes it perfect for springtime.
