Cakes make delicious ending

By Staff

There are some wonderful cakes made by cooks with all kinds of skills that are simply delicious.
The cakes are cooked in pans, Pyrex oblong dishes, or bunt pans.
Many are cakes drawn from the imagination and changed as the years go by, with a little cinnamon here, a few nuts there, and different flavors to enhance the taste.
But one thing most people enjoy is the icing on the cake.
There are many kinds of icings- hot ones, cool ones, sprinkled ones, drizzled chocolate and glazes.
You can pick the best one for the cake you are preparing.
Recently I have found three cakes that have a hot icing that is poured over the baked cake while it is still hot from the oven.
There is a chocolate cake with a hot chocolate mixture with nuts poured over it, and apple cake with brown sugar and nuts to pour and a pineapple coconut cake with a pour-over icing of coconut, pineapple and nuts. They are all delicious.
My favorite icings are the white cakes with homemade caramel icing and a yellow cake with homemade chocolate icing.
You may have make an icing for your favorite cake.
Fruit juices combined with powdered sugar make great glazes for your pound cakes.
I have trouble licking the bowl when I've finished this kind of pound cake.
These glazes are so tasty.
