  1. Awesome, so much chocolate 🙂
    I just tried the1st place one, but it tastes like…mayonaise. Is it supposed to ?
    I have heard say that american mayonaise ‘isn’t mayonaise’ compared to the ones from Belgium, so maybe that’s it. 🙂
    How do you make mayonnaise?
    Thanks 🙂

      hmm… I did taste the tiniest bit of mayo the first time I made it, but my husband, who didn’t know it contained any, did not.

      The second time I made it, I didn’t taste any. The third time, I used my homemade mayo and definitely did not taste anything.

      I’ll look up the recipe for my mayo this afternoon and pass it on. 🙂

  2. How exciting! This just made my day – I don’t think I’ve ever placed in a contest before. 🙂 Thanks so much – and I can’t wait to try these other cakes!

      Yay! So glad. 🙂 Your cake was delicious!

  3. My mother jokes that my father asked her to make him a chocolate cake every week as part of their wedding vows, so we *always* had chocolate cake in the house growing up. That said, my father preferred his own mother’s recipe. Grandmother Avery was a wonderful woman, very refined, gracious, a magnificent pianist and an absolutely horrid cook. The cakes were dry as dust.. even the frosting was dry! I’m sorely tempted to make that mayo cake and bring it down next time we visit;-)

      Too funny! If my husband had thought of it, I’m sure he would have tried to put that in the wedding vows too…

  4. Boy! Those all sound delicious. I’ve never tried a cake with mayo in. For some reason I just can’t wrap my head around that…but I guess I’ll have to try it now 😛

      My Grandma, who stopped by yesterday to taste the “three best”, said, “I’ve heard tell of mayo cake for years and years but never tried one. How crazy I was…” (she picked that cake as her favorite as well!)

      I love that all the ingredients are things I keep around the house. 🙂
