7. Cotton Candy Cake

Cotton candy cake

So I bet you’re wondering how this Cotton Candy Cake tastes, right?? Does it actually taste like Cotton Candy?? To be fair, I’m not sure that it totally does. The cotton candy flavouring almost had more of a bubblegum + coconut kinda flavour (to me anyhow). That being said, it is perfectly delicious. Like, SO good. It is on the sweeter side overall (which should be no surprise given the name), but it was a hit all around over here.

8. Banana Split Layer Cake

Once you get your mind around an ice cream cake without using any ice cream at all, you’ll adore this cake. It looks like a big Neapolitan ice cream treat because of the colors, the chocolate ganache “dripping” down the side of the cake, and the fluffy white frosting topped with Maraschino cherries.

I’ve used variations of this vanilla cake before, and it always yields delicious results. The buttermilk in the cake helps ensure that it’s not super sweet, and it works well with any kind of frosting. I used a Swiss meringue buttercream here because it’s my favourite, but you can use an American buttercream instead if you prefer.
