Let Them Eat Cake: Top 10 Cake Recipes
I've been writing for Serious Eats: Sweets since January of 2011. At first my recipes included everything from ice cream to cookies to cake, but eventually "Let Them Eat Cake" was born and, since then, my focus is blissfully devoted to pondering deeply on cake—layered, icebox, rolled, hand-held.
My favorites are usually nutty, brown butter-based, booze-soaked, dark caramel swirled, or fruit inflected. Click through the slideshow to see my ultimate top ten.
