Most people don't take the time to learn about different crumb textures/levels of moisture and how to achieve it. A cupcake should never have the same density as pound cake and pound cake shouldn't have the same crumb as say a plain yellow layer cake. And bakery emulsions give a better long lasting flavor than extracts.

Frosting makes a cake for me.

I learned a while ago that people's palets adjust to what they are used to. Even if it's nasty. I never take people seriously when they talk about their parents cooking.

One lady bought salty cookies to work one day. I learned later she doesn't like sweets so she is always light on sugar when she bakes.



Salty cookies?! I have a serious sweet tooth, so My feelings were hurt just reading that, I'm sorry your tastebuds had to experience such a thing [xx(]

I feel you on folks bragging about how relatives can "throw down" in the kitchen....then you taste the shyt and be like what the hell [:s]

Cake.
Cakecakecakecake.LOL


It's rare I have a 'good' cake. Usually it is too dry. I wish folk knew frosting can't save a dry cake.

Moist, flavorful, and I'm a sucker for cream cheese frosting. If it's buttercream frosting, I'll more than likely scrape it all off.

I don't like a lot of frosting tho.

I had a slice of strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting from Publix the other day...so good I seriously thought about going all the way back for another slice when I was done, and I don't even care for sweets like that. I was strong tho.

Definitely a sucker for red velvet, carrot, and a bomb ass chocolate cake.

Flavorful without artificial crap (besides food coloring and frosting... those things cannot be organic anyways), and moist. I like frosting but if frosting is the only tasty thing on the cake, it sucks.
