While there are many cakes that are perfect for celebrating birthdays and other special occasions, a two layer Vanilla Cake covered with Confectioners Frosting is especially popular. I really like this Vanilla Cake's sweet buttery flavor and light and moist texture. The frosting used to both fill and frost the cake also has a sweet and buttery flavor with a light and fluffy texture. To further decorate the cake, you can pipe some of the frosting around the top and base of the cake in a pretty design, and candy dots pressed into the frosting finish the look.

Welcome to Anna Olson's Bake Shop Treats Series, where she teaches you how to create some of your favorite bakery bars and squares. These bars are different than banana bread – they are sweeter and denser, slicing easily into little bites. The orange zest lends a nice nuance to the bars and the frosting dresses them up a bit.

5. Thanksgiving Pumpkin Crumble Cake

Pumpkin Crumble Cake Recipe combines the best of pumpkin pie with cake. This is the perfect Thanksgiving Holiday dessert. Pumpkin crumble cake is sort of a pumpkin pie and a pumpkin cake in one. I like to use Betty Crocker Super moist Yellow Cake Mix for this recipe. This cake has all the yummy flavors of a pumpkin pie but the heartiness of a cake. It's the perfect dessert to have during the holidays or bring to a holiday party. It's fast an easy and always a crowd pleaser. It was featured recently on the Betty Crocker Facebook Fan Page! I got this recipe from a friend years ago when she made it for a potluck dinner. I modified it a little over the years. I think it is the right combination of pie and cake. Enjoy!
