It looks great. I followed the link to David's recipe thanks for providing it. He did not specify what type of flour to use. What type did you use ?

I made a low-fat apple cake for a friend who's at home recovering from recent surgery. Lots of apple, coated with a sugar-cinnamon mixture...

just before it went in the oven, with more of the sugar-cinnamon sprinkled on top...

just after it came out, with a lovely cracked top...

I'm very tempted to bake another one so I can show how beautiful it is sliced, too.

I'm gonna go bake something…

That's a little beauty. I have to make something for guests on Wednesday...perhaps an apple cake.

This couple, whom we have never met, is bringing their two Bassets for a first play-date with our two Rotties. What does one serve??? Something with a St. Patrick's theme or a dog theme? What could be a dog-themed cake for humans??? :raz:

Gingerbread cut with a dog bone cookie cutter and drizzlked with a lemon glaze? Ginger cookies ditto, there used to be a recipe floating around for a "Kitty Litter Cake" since most dogs think those are snacks, with extra crunchies added... :shock::laugh:

Don't know about the Kitty Litter idea...

Besides having some dog chocolate molds, I also have a quite large dog cookie mold. 7" high x 4 3/4" at the widest point. (We host a Dog Weekend every August for friends and dogs...yes, it is somewhat chaotic and so I do own a number of doggy things.)

Thanks judiu. :smile: Time will be the deciding factor.

You are a cruel pair, making mock of me and my dogs. Could you but meet them. Morgan is huge, but a wuss from the word go. Cowers when approached by a terrifying Lhasa Apso or Shih Tzu. Sable is a more alpha and will defend Morgan when needed. Both are completely socialized as regards both humans and dogs and useless as watch dogs.

The cake is for the humans...as if you didn't know. I do have homemade biscuits for the dogs, of course. :wub:

Beautiful. The respective flavors seem to leap out of each.

Not sure about freezing – I think the cake itself would freeze great, but I'd worry about what might happen to the chunks of apple in there. But seriously, this cake is so good, you won't have any leftovers to freeze!

I see your point. What I am searching for is some cake that I CAN freeze...as in make two, freeze one.

We had our doggy humans and pups today and I had made my usual lemon curd poppy seed cake for the humans. It was delicious, it didn't rise properly and was a trifle lead-like. I could not serve it. Oh, for something I could have whipped out of the freezer at the last minute. As it was, I quickly made some chocolate molded doggy shapes and all was well. But I really could use that freezable cake!! :hmmm:

I am just utterly, utterly speechless and awestruck! What amazingly beautiful cakes. If I ever made something that looked like that, I could just roll over and die - my life goals complete! Bravo!

Rhubab and ginger crubmle with custard.

It's a classic!

I caramalised the rhubarb in the pan with the ginger then gave it a douse of rum before getting it in the oven. Loved the flavour from the syrup.

As the picture shows, you can never have too much custard! (unfortunately it's ice cream only with today's second round of crumble!)

      Ever since Todd talked making cupcakes I have been cupcake crazy. Although, I am not a cake maker but more of a pie person.
      My first dessert that I love that I make is my Coconut Cream Pie w/heavy whipped cream. I don't use low fat anything and probably angioplasties is necessary after this baby.
      My second is Peach Cobbler w/rich vanilla ice cream. I never met a cobbler that I didn't like, but peach is my favorite.
      I don't make these often because I wouldn't be able to get through the front door if I did.
      How about yours?

      Hi all!! 
      I work at an amazing little New Zealand Style ice cream shop in the beautiful Denver Colorado. I was hoping to get a little help on the subject of adding fruit into ice cream after extracting it and ensuring that, when the ice cream is frozen, the fruity bits don't turn into rock hard shards. I am planning on doing a cherry chocolate ice cream and I was going to soak some dried cherries that we're no longer using for something else. I was planning on using some brandy and a ton of sugar, but I was really hoping someone had a tried and true method they could send my way so that I KNOW that the fruit will be luscious as it's frozen. If you have a certain sugar ratio. I know there is the brix test, but to be honest it's been many years since pastry school and I am very rusty. Would love to hear from some of my fellow sugar-heads. 
      Thank you!

      Hi guys! I got excited to post something as this is my first one.
      So, the top 3 desserts I like to eat when I was still in Philippines were Halu-halo (literally means mix-mix in english), brazo de mercedes and chocolate crinkles.

      1. HALU-HALO is one of the popular food during summer. This is basically:
      shaved ice with evaporated milk,
      sugar,
      and the following:
      - nata de coco (coconut cream based on a google search, these are cube-like jellies),
      - sweetened red beans,
      - sweetened bananas,
      - cooked sago or tapioca,
      - ube or purple yam,
      - leche flan (this is also one of the best desserts to eat),
      - macapuno (made of coconut),
      - sweetend jackfruit,
      - sweetened kamote (this is similar to sweet potato but caramelized),
      - sweetened kaong (sugar palm fruit)
      - and topped with a scoop of ice cream.
      These fruits are usually bought in jars (found mostly in Asian grocery stores). You basically put the fruits at the bottom, add sugar (if you want because almost all the fruits are sweetened so it's already sweet), then you fill the cup/bowl with shaved ice and add milk. And most importantly, mix it well before you eat because you don't want to eat shaved ice with milk only and then eat the really sweet fruits last.

      2. BRAZO DE MERCEDES
      Yah, I think the name is Spanish? I tried making this but I just failed. It's kinda hard to do and takes a lot of patience but it's really worth it. This is my favourite cake! In Philippines, most bakeries sell this but my favourite is from Goldiluck's which is located in shopping malls.

      3. CHOCOLATE CRINKLES
      These are my favourite chocolate cookies! I think this one isn't really from Philippines but they are really popular. I was kinda shocked when I came here in Canada, because they don't sell these cookies in the bakeries I've been to so I tried baking these on my own. Since my post is getting long, I'll put the recipe as a link at the bottom.

      I hope you enjoyed my post! Happy eating and baking everyone!

      Hoping for some help.  I accidentally melted an old mould that is very important to us and I've had no luck searching around for a replacement.  
      If anyone knows where I could buy one - or even has one to spare they would be willing to sell - please send me a message.
      The mould (label attached below) was originally labelled as "Easy as ABC gelatin mould", although we just call it the alphabet mould.  Yes there are lots of alphabet moulds around, including new silicone ones, but we need the specific designs on this one to replace the one I damaged.  Depending on the cost, I would consider paying for postage internationally (to Australia).
      Thanks in advance!
