5 of the best cakes according to you

We asked our TASTE community to tell us what the ultimate cake is and they delivered! While there were variations in the suggestions given, there were clear favourites! We’ve narrowed down the answers to create the top 5 best cakes. Did yours make the list?

5. Citrus cake

Perhaps it’s because it’s citrus season, but there’s a lot of love for citrus cakes. Lemon poppy seed, blood orange and olive oil, lemon drizzle and chocolate-and-orange chocolate cake were some of the suggestions. We can’t choose a favourite. They all sound so good!

4. Vanilla cake

Who says vanilla is boring? Given its versatility, it’s no wonder many of you love it. Some of your favourite ways to have it include smothering it in vanilla buttercream, adding caramel frosting, topping it with colourful sprinkles and going old school with apricot jam and coconut.

3. Carrot cake

Some like it with lots of nuts, others prefer it on the spicier side, but no matter your preference, one universal truth remains: carrot cake must have cream cheese icing!
