For from-scratch flavor, Marcia C. of Toledo, Ohio adds 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and one whole egg to a white cake mix in place of an egg white. “Everyone always tells me my cake has the best flavor,” she says.
One bite of this moist, colorful cake and you'll think you've found the pot o' gold at the end of the rainbow. It's the perfect dessert to round out your St. Patrick's Day feast. —Marge Nicol, Shannon, Illinois
Everyone gets fired up when they see my Racetrack Cake. For the track and pit stop area, I use gray icing outlined with yellow frosting gel. Edible green glitter designates the grass areas, and miniature racecars look so cute speeding around the track. —Amber Kimmich, Powhatan, Virginia
