Everyone will be purring with delight when they see—and taste—this cat cake. We used a store-bought cake mix for the body and head and purchased sponge cake for the ears, paws and tail. Then they whipped up fluffy frosting to serve as "fur" and fashioned features from candy.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
On a bake sale table or alone at home, these feline treats won't last nine lives! The cute candy faces will catch attention fast...and the tasty orange-coconut cake from Doris Barb if El Dorado, Kansas will have folks snatching seconds.
Mary Jo Kopecky of Madison, Wisconsin sent us her recipe for a wonderful fudge torte. "It's so rich and fudgy, but is loaded with saturated fat." The makeover fudge cake is moist, dense and oh-so-chocolaty...and has half the calories and saturated fat of the original.
This old-fashioned dessert often ends the meal at my home. My aunt has made this moist, rich sheet cake for as long as I can remember. Not only is it a cake I can quickly make from scratch, but it calls for ingredients I usually have in the pantry. —Kristine Marra, Clifton Park, New York
