Crystal Potter Recipe shared by:

A yummy Chocolate Banana cake serves as the base of a cupcake so good is truly gives a real banana split a run for it's money. Piled high with Strawberry Shortcake frosting, drizzled with hot fudge, sprinkled with nuts, topped with a dallop of whipped cream and finished with a cherry. It's all here sans the melty icecream.

Mayonnaise as a replacement for oil and eggs in a cake mix

You can substitute the oil and eggs called for in a cake mix by following the directions below: Omit eggs and oil and use ONLY the same amount of Mayonnaise as oil called for in the cake mix directions. You may need to adjust the amount of water. Start by addiing a small amount of water and add more as needed to achieve a cake batter consistency, but do NOT exceed the amount called for in the directions.

great wedding cake tiers

Great compliment getter when I'm baking wedding cakes. Instead of trimming the top of the layers off even with the baking pan as they teach in Wilton cake classes, I place a linen dish towel (used only for this) over the layer immediately after removing from the oven. I place a large cutting board over the towel, weight it down with something heavy & let steam 5 min. & remove . The layer is dense-moist-pound cake texture- easy to handle, stack, decorate & deliver . EASY TO CUT & SERVE !!!
