I would definitely be the glamorous "La Torte TRopezienne". I love it's story and French flair and of course it is so delectable. And it's Briget Bardot's favorite.

I would be a delicious coffee cake to be enjoyed on a relaxing morning with a hot cup of coffee, good conversation, good friends and lotsa love. <3

A Boston Cream Pie...cool, creamy vanilla custard between layers of buttery cake with just the right amount of chocolate glaze as a counterpoint. Texture, flavors, contrast...the perfect bite.

I would be a moist devil's food cake with a sour cream chocolate gooey frosting.

I can't lie. I'd be the moistest, stickiest Sticky Toffee Date Cake, and I'd be covered in a bourbon glaze.

devils food with chocolate frosting, banana cake with brown butter frosting or boston cream pie. I had a hard time choosing, so I narrowed it down to three.

What kind of cake would I be? I think that would depend on my mood. I could be a chocolate cake with salted dark chocolate frosting one day, a lemon cake with lemon curd filling and lemon buttercream the next. And if I win Dorie's new book, maybe I'll just be an entire bakery, so I never have to choose just one cake! ;)

I LOVE Dorie, her stand at the Essex Market (where I have stopped by to say hi at times, and for some jammers), and all of her cookbooks..so excited to get this new one! As far as cake goes, I would probably be a chocolate stout bundt, with a drizzled ganache frosting....moist, rich, and impossibly rich. Almost sinfully so!

I would be the Italian Mascarpone Torte at Pastiche in Providence, RI. There is not a more decadent, delicious cake!

I would be a carrot cake, but not with your typical cream cheese icing. My mom used to make one with lemon glaze. It was made for me on my birthday growing up. I don't have the ability to make it, it's very time consuming and labor intensive, I can't stand on my feet long enough any longer. I long for one so much sometimes and they cost a fortune to buy even small ones.

My honey loves peaches and if I could be a cake, I would be his favorite, my blueberry peach, pie-cake. The vanilla cake shell perfectly contains and compliments the beautiful and juicy fruit. Add a little whipped creme fraiche to offset the sweetness of the fruit and you have the perfect summer dessert...and my honey's heart!
