Top 5 Cake Flavors

Cake Flavors



Have you ever just eaten an entire cake in one sitting? No? Just me? Well, either way, you’ve probably enjoyed a slice of cake from time to time. But have you ever considered what the top cake flavors are? Because there are plenty out there, and while they’re all generally tasty, only five can be the best.

Keep in mind this is cake flavors, not types of cake. You won’t find things like ice cream cake or coffee cake on here. However, you’ll just have to wait for another time for that one. But you won’t ever find king cake, because it’s awful. These are also all cakes that are typically accessible at restaurants and stores. While you may be able to make a mean almond, lemon, pesto, and toffee cake, chances are you won’t find that on a menu anytime soon.

In the meantime, chew on your favorite slice of cake. Let’s go!

1. Tres Leches Cake

This was really a competition for second place, because tres leches will always be the winner. I really came into my tres leches element in college, since Cuban restaurants run rampant in Miami. And let me tell you – a tres leches cake can brighten ANY mood. Doesn’t matter if you’ve just taken seven finals in a row or worked 63 hours this week. Your life will be improved with just one bite.

2. Red Velvet Cake

It took me a while to catch the red velvet train, but then I finally learned cream cheese icing on a moist cake is pretty amazing. Sure, a dry red velvet cake will ruin your Tuesday, but a good one will knock your socks off. In fact, let’s go get some right now.

3. Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Frosting

Love the taste of chocolate but just can’t eat a huge amount of it? Top with vanilla frosting and life will be just fine. The Chocolate and Vanilla classic is a movement most can get behind.

4. Yellow Cake with Strawberry Frosting

How’s this for a little curveball? Strawberry frosting? Am I nuts? Probably, yes. Of course, strawberry frosting can sometimes be far too sweet, but just the right amount will make you more content than Goldilocks.

5. Double Chocolate Cake

Not for the faint of heart, obviously. This is chocolate on chocolate at its finest. This cake is probably the best at keeping everyone at a manageable portion, since it could potentially just be TOO much chocolate. But in small(ish) slices, it’s absolutely fantastic. What more could a chocoholic want?
