Banana Split Cake

Banana Split Cake

Well it was my birthday the other day so of course I had to make myself a birthday cake!  One of my favorite desserts is a banana split! So I wanted to make a way where I can have those amazing flavors in a cake.  I also wanted to make it super simple so anyone cane make it! I am so happy on the way this cake turned out, its exactly how I hoped it would. Not only does it taste good but it looks so cute, perfect for a birthday!

In this recipe I used Wilton Easy Layer Pan Set but its not necessary to use them.  I liked using them because they are small so I can easily have separate layers of each flavor. If you just want to use a pan you already have, the cake still looks and tastes good when you marble the different flavor batters!

Robin Egg Cake Pops

Robin Egg Cake Pops

Since it is almost Easter, I wanted to share with you my fun twist on a cake pop.  So if you don't know how a cake pop is made it's basically your cake and icing mixed and balled up and dipped in candy melts or chocolate of some sort.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Crisps

Peanut Butter Chocolate Crisps

I love these cookie crisps things, but I cannot take credit for them! They sort of taste like a peanut butter twix.  I found this recipe in a magazine clipping my stepmom gave me. Unfortunately I do not know what magazine they are from. They are too good not to share with the world though. I haven't seen a recipe similar to this out there, I never would have thought to use butter crackers as a dessert. When making these crisps your kitchen will smell like an old fashion ice cream shop when they are making fresh waffle cones, its amazing.

Make a Cake Look and Taste Like Bakery- Vanilla

Make a Cake Look and Taste Like Bakery- Vanilla

I want to share with you ways you can take your favorite box cake and make it look and taste like you got it from a bakery.  Its so simple, anyone can do it (no special tools needed!) And nobody will believe you made it. 

The one thing I did buy is this cake set made by Wilton that gives you 5-6in cake pans. You can buy it at Micheal's, Hobby Lobby, Target etc.  Its only $12 at Michael's and they always have coupons so I think I only bought it for $8.  Let me tell you that was the best $8 I have ever spent.  This pan set is the east fix to make any cake look professional.  I don't know what it is about skinny tall cakes that are so cute, but they are my favorite style.

Another Trick to making it taste like a bakery cake is, instead of water replace it with milk. Then instead of oil replace it with melted butter then make it doubled if you want.  Add vanilla and an extra egg.

My final trick is, icing it super simple to make from scratch so I would make it from scratch.  I usually make it during the time of my cakes cooking and cooling. (Or ahead of time.)

 

What you will need

Cake:

  • Wilton Easy Layers Cake Set
  • You Favorite Vanilla Cake Mix
  • Butter =to the amount of oil on box then optionally double it
