  2. comfort says:

    hi terry.i need ur help.hubby n i bday is coming up in a weeks tym n i was thinking of stackin rvc german chocolate cake n lemon cake togthr n frosting.will that work? plus which do u think will b better;buttercream icing or which frosting. thanks.one last question how long will it stay at room temperature? sorry,too many questions. thanks

    • Terry Adido says:

      Hi. If you want to mix all three in a cake, then you must go with cream cheese frosting. Unless very important, I will suggest you remove the lemon cake from the equation. Cake frosted with creamcheese can last the duration of the party at room temp. That should be about 6 hrs. Do not forget to take it out of the fridge about an hour b4 you intend to serve.

  3. comfort says:

    thanks.youve been helpfull

  4. comfort says:

    if i remove lemon cake from the equation,which frosting is best or is it still cream cheese.

  5. comfort says:

    thanks a bunch,will be back with a review after the party.

  8. Chioma says:

    Thanks for d wonderful works. Am a starter and will be doing wedding cake. Pls what will I use to make d cake delicious to attract more customers. Thanks.

    • Terry Adido says:

      Hi. Wedding cakes can be intimidating. I’d advice you keep it clean and simple. I doubt there is any ingredient that can make your cake more delicious. My advice is to always use fresh and high quality ingredients. Use butter and not margarine. Fresh eggs. All the best.

  9. Chioma says:

    Pls what are d fresh and high quality ingredients I can use? I normally use butter, fresh eggs, sugar, browning, vanilla flavor, nutmeg, flour, baking powder, salt, soda etc.

  10. Chioma says:

    Ok. Thanks

  11. yvonne says:

    Evenin Terry,pls can I get a good reciepe for banana cake nd strawberry cake

  20. yasaar says:

    Morning ,

    I tried your French Vanilla cake I was simply divine . Can this recipe be made into a chocolate cake ? How much cocoa would I need to substitute ? If not which of you chocolate cakes would be the best to use .

    Thanks,

    • Terry Adido says:

      Glad to hear. I have never tried it as a chocolate cake before; but it is worth exploring. I thus cannot give any definite answer about quantities of cocoa powder. My fall back recipe for chocolate cakes is usually the Chocolate Butter Cake.

  21. Joyce says:

    Hi Terry!
    Thanks so much for willingly sharing your knowledge. please do you have a sponge cake recipe aside the Vanilla sponge?

  22. Wilcordia says:

    Hello Terry I trust you are good. Please I have a francophone client who demanded a cream cake and insisted on it. I don’t know if I can get a recipe for or is it the same as sponge cake? I will appreciate a response. Best Regards.

  23. Wilcordia says:

    hello again Terry. From the description I think she needs a cake extremely soft fluffy with cream in between. Which recipe is good for that? and how to I get cream in between cake?. I hope I’m not boring you. Thanks for your time.

  24. oluyemisi olawuyi babalola says:

    I like your ideas,it lift my spirit that l can do too. I can bake and derocate but my finishes is not proffessional like Your.
    My question is can you train me and what books can l get to improve myself?

  25. oluwawemimo says:

    Hi Terry Thanks for the inspiration

  26. Amanda Jameer says:

    Hi Terry, my cake flour has baking soda already and it is high rising. Would it be good for your vanilla cake recipe?

  27. Amanda Jameer says:

    Hi Terry, my cake mix has baking powder and salt added. What do you suggest for the vanilla cake recipe?

  28. kudzai emily chagonda says:

    Hie this perfect and best site for cake recipes that never fail. triedyour french vanilla with margarine instead of butter coz butter so expensive here and it was divine. I got 2 cake orders from it. I also had to use self raising cake flour and halfed my bp. Thanks a lot from zimbabwe. oh the ither chocolate cake with oil was a disaster and way too oily and sunken to paper thin kkkkk.

  29. Gbemisola says:

    Hi Terry, I just bumped into your site and I’ve been so overwhelmed. God will surely increase your wisdom, knowledge and understanding as you have selflessly shared so much knowledge and impacted lives. I’m a beginner and I look forward to baking amazing cakes with your recipes. You rock Terry!

  30. Joy says:

    Thank you for your kind heart, Terry.
