Mom’s Strawberry Cake

One weekend while we were sharing a house with our roommate, Randy, Mom came to visit and brought this super-moist pink cake. We all loved it, and several months later Randy asked if we could get the recipe and make another one.

Start with strawberry cake made from a boxed mix, soak it with a mixture of condensed milk and coconut milk, and top it with whipped cream.

Dump Cake

I had never heard of dump cake, until my college roommate, Elizabeth, introduced it to me. It doesn’t get much more simple than dumping cake mix on top of pie filling, and I’ve often heard of people making it over a fire while camping.

Matt’s Chocolate Cake

This cake was legendary in the halls of National Instruments. Matt is a wonderful cook, and he’s equally wonderful about bringing food to share with his coworkers. He made this cake for Denise’s birthday, and she raved about the Hershey chocolate icing.
