2. Bourbon Layer Cake with Bourbon Ganache and Milk Chocolate Buttercream from Love and Olive Oil

From the website: “Bourbon buttermilk cake. Bourbon chocolate ganache. Milk chocolate buttercream. And I did not skimp on the bourbon, either. There’s a half a cup in the cake alone. You can literally smell the aroma the second you cut into it.”

3. Cranberry Orange Cake from Liv for Cake

From the website: “Something about the sweet-tart flavor is irresistible. Maybe the fact that they’re not as cloyingly sweet as a lot of desserts or that they just feel more refreshing. I don’t know. They are delicious!”

4. Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cake from Sugar Hero!

From the website: “Making the cake itself couldn’t be easier. It’s a basic pound cake recipe, so the cake is nice and firm for slicing in half. I filled it with a thick layer of peanut butter frosting, and topped it with homemade strawberry jam (but store-bought jam would work just as well!)”

5. Hummingbird Cake from Cooking Classy

From the website: “I think of this cake as banana cake meets the tropics, in that it is loaded with bananas, laced with fresh pineapple and covered in sweet, toasted coconut. It will remind you a lot of banana bread, but with a bonus of decadent cream cheese frosting of course. There are so many delicious flavors and perfect textures in this cake.”

6. Lemon Blueberry Cake from Beyond Frosting

From the website: “This Lemon Blueberry cake is the bomb you guys. The layers of moist lemon cake are loaded with sweet blueberries. In between each layer of cake is mascarpone whipped cream and a tangy lemon curd. One of my girlfriends described this cake as not overly sweet but loaded with flavor. It’s a crowd favorite. Of course, the lemon and blueberry are a match made in heaven.”
