Review by Debbie Mazo

Passionate bakers know that few activities are more enjoyable than preparing a cake from scratch. Whether plain or fancy, frosted or layered, a cake is the ultimate reward for sharing with friends and family. Have your cake and eat it too, when you check out the best of cakes on the Web at CakeRecipe.com.


Part of the Recipe Network, this searchable database is packed with recipes that any cake lover will get a rise out of. Cakes by Category serves up over 20 types of cakes from coffee cakes to sponge cakes.

Click on one of the categories and you'll find dozens of offerings. For a holiday treat, try the Easter Party Cake. Or, surprise the bride-to-be with a recipe for Bridal Shower Cake. To make life easier, each recipe can be viewed in standard or metric units or printed to full page or recipe card size.

More than just a piece of cake, this site has a daily favorite (the current choice was a moist and delicious Black Russian Cake), a weekly top 10 representing the most popular recipes at the site, and helpful hints like how to soften butter and beat egg whites.


Still can't make up your mind. Then, spin the Recipe Roulette where you'll be sure to find a great recipe every time. Or, check out the Recipe Exchange where you can submit a request for a recipe or share some of your old favorites with other cake lovers from around the world. Whether it's cake, kuchen, or torta, it's "all cakes, all the time" at CakeRecipe.com.
