Cake Off Recipes

After learning our lesson the first year of the Cake Off, we have provided a concise and fairly easy to make list of recipes to enjoy the moist, succulent samples from the Cake Off at home with friends & family.

To everyone who came out to try the samples and test the recipes with us, thank you again for the great weekend that celebrated our 3rd year of this tradition. Your open minds and willing appetites help make these events so much greater – Danny & the Crew
