CHOCOLATE!!!!!! My grandmom always used the Hershey's recipe but replaced water with coffee- it's the most amazing cake EVER! I think the recipe is on their website. I love, love, love chocolate with chocolate icing!

Like Christmas-a-holic I'm a buttercream lover, could eat buckets of the stuff!!!!

My fav cake is one my Mum makes. It's a 'rock cake' mix made with an extra egg but you bake it in a big tray - not as little cakes. I love the choc and cherry version she does. This was my birthday cake from a couple years ago:

Coconut Cake! Here's my favorite recipe;

INGREDIENTS
1 package (about 18 ounces) white cake mix 1 can (about 13 ounces) light coconut milk 4 egg whites 1 container (16 ounces) vanilla frosting 2 cups flaked coconut Violet food coloring paste Edible flowers (optional) PREPARATION:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 2 (8-inch) round cake pans; line with with parchment paper.
  2. Combine cake mix, coconut milk and egg whites in large bowl; beat at low speed of electric mixer 30 seconds. Beat 2 minutes at medium-low speed or until well blended.
  3. Divide batter evenly between prepared pans. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until toothpicks inserted into centers come out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
  4. Place 1 cake layer on cake board or serving platter; frost top with vanilla frosting. Top with remaining layer; frost side and top of cake with remaining frosting.
  5. Place coconut in large resealable food storage bag; add small amount of food coloring. Seal bag; knead until coconut is evenly tinted. Press coconut into frosting on side of cake. Garnish with edible flowers, if desired.
NOTE; I personally find it easier to put the coconut in a bowl and use the spray-on food color (I get mine at Michael's Crafts). It comes in a beautiful lavender color that looks just like the cake on the web page. You could also spray on the coloring after you've put the coconut on the cake.

This is a delicious cake, and very easy to make. The original recipe is from here.
