How to Bake A Banana Cake from A Yellow Mix

This is a "go-to" recipe for me and a true favorite among family and clients as well. It is a very mild Banana, in fact most people don't realize it's Banana at first, but a rich buttery Vanilla. I think what throws most people off is what I pair it with. I most often go for a Caramel Frosting Filling with a layer of Ganache of course! I like to turn it into a "fruit salad" Cake in the summer with a layer of sugared strawberries and a layer of cream cheese filling.....and often Ganache :) This one is great as a parfait cake too. Torte it into 3 layers and then fill with gorgeous fillinngs, let them drip out a little and then don't ice the outside, just let all that yummyness hang out and place some beautiful dollops of Icing or Whipcream on the top!

Easter Bunny Cake Video

This figure piped Easter Bunny was always an Easter Standard for me and my mom when we worked in commercial cake shops. It's surprisingly quick and easy and with the airbrushed back ground, candies and flowers it really popped in the case. See how to make this cake in this video:
