Our Community's 5 Sweetest, Most Show-Stopping Layer Cakes
In our latest recipe contest, we reprised our very first Food52 contest: Your Best Layer Cake. The original contest brought us just three entries, but each one has become a Food52 standard: Amanda's mother's Chocolate Dump-It Cake, Abs' Not Red Velvet Cake With Fudge Icing, and Eric Liftin's Lemon Birthday Cake. For this round, we asked our community members to bring us some more creative flavor combinations. We had high hopes for this Redux, and you delivered. From pistachio-lychee-rose cake to a mascarpone whipped cream-topped stunner, we loved the creativity this contest brought out in our talented community members.
