Thank you for the marble cake recipe. I was actually inquiring about the cake on the Pillivuyt cake stand. It looks like a type of rustic cake.

Do we have the recipe somewhere for the cake on the stand?

PS I've experimented with french press, espresso and various roasters with the chocolate dump it cake. Omitted the frosting in the recipe and went for the caramel glaze from the apple bundt recipe instead, and then sprinkled hawaiian flaked sea salt on the caramel which I like thick and applied slowly while cooling. Even non cake eaters couldn't resist. It's super moist salty sweet and out of this world.

I love this site and these recipes and tools! Thank you for the feature, what a lovely surprise. Baking is a pure joy that reminds me of and keeps creating good memories to share. To be honest, I'm more of a pastry or pie girl than a cake girl, so these recipes and tools represent a breakthrough for me in finding flavors and recipes that won me over! Enjoy!
