What's not to love about cake? With so many delicious cakes to choose from it's hard to choose just one. Whether it be Black Forest cake, red velvet cake, sponge cake, ice cream cake or cherry cheesecake, they always please. Typical ingredients for cake can include flour, sugar, eggs, and butter or oil, with some recipes also requiring additional liquid most often milk or water, and leavening agents (such as yeast or baking powder). Common additional flavourings include dried, candied or fresh fruit, nuts, cocoa or extracts, and numerous substitutions for the primary ingredients are possible. Cakes can also be filled with fruit preserves or dessert sauces to include like pastry cream, iced with buttercream or other icings, and decorated with marzipan, piped borders, and/or candied fruit.
