I am always the cake baker for friends birthdays. I tend to know what they like and tailor the cake to their preferences...ginger cake, guiness cake etc. My husband volunteered me to make a cake for a coworkers wife who I do not know very well and we will be attending her dinner party on Saturday night. Anyone have a WOW cake. Doesn;t have to be gourmet or hard to do, just one that is a crowd pleaser.
