These cake recipes are what I often use when I make cakes for special occasions.

I wish I could take credit for all the recipes I posted here but my compilation of cake recipes come from different sources such as books, the internet, relatives,cooking shows, magazines and even old newspaper clippings.

Ready-made cake mixes are not only easy to make, it is also pretty much fail safe.

Unless of course it is not burned, resulting cakes are usually moist and fluffy.

The ganache with the hazelnut flavoring is absolutely amazing. I have successfully made a chocolate buche de Noel for the past few years and decided to change to a vanilla based cake this year.

I was excited to try this recipe because I am quite a fan of King Arthur flour.

When I first started out making cakes, I used boxed cake mixes.

The jelly roll sized cake I made baked well, but sadly, like other bakers reported, I experienced cracks in the cake.

Yes I just filled them in with chocolate ganache but it was disappointing.

I used a bit of orange rum in my filling and syrup.

Instead of white chocolate I used another chocolate frosting recipe (with butter, cocoa, melted chocolate and powdered sugar and more orange rum).
