Who doesn’t love cake? Seriously. If that’s you. Get outta here. We’ve all had our share of great cakes, but if you want to spice things up a little, cake of the month clubs are a fun idea. The name really says it all. This type of club provides you with a cake each month. […]

So we’re going to start out with any cake recipe you like. You pick! For this recipe, I recommend something dense, dark, and chocolatey. We’re going to freeze these, and personally, I think fluffier recipes don’t stand up to the freezer as well. I also think that a denser recipe will stand up to getting cut an handled better.
