    101 reasons to bake

    Marie DeAngelis from Sunrise, FL

    I don't have children of my own, but love to spoil my nieces and nephews; I saw this cake and had to bake it for them... I bought "101 Dalmations" paper plates and napkins; rented the movies and had a "Dalmation Day." It was great fun! they loved the frosting without the coconut... I did put coconut on mine, it was good either way. I can't wait until my girlfriend's kid has a Birthday, so I can make this again!

    Dog-gone good

    K P from BONNEY LAKE, WA

    With the almond extract in this cake, there is a little hint of flavor that is unexpected, but so addicting. I did double the amount of frosting, but it had great flavor and just enhanced the cake. It was so simple to make and only took a matter of minutes, and it was gone just as quick! Delicious!

    Easy & Delicious!

    Trudy Freezer from MONTGOMERY, PA

    I made this super easy cake for my Husband and I and we both just loved it! We don't care for the almond flavoring that much so I substituted coconut and added the new French Vanilla flavorings. It was excellent.

    SIMPLE and TASTY!

    Jasmine Cody from FARMINGDALE, NY

    What is NOT to like? Chocolate chips? Coconut? White cake mix? Marshmallow Cream? No one in this household would complain. . . We LOVE all of these - and put together they are EVEN BETTER! A really simple and tasty dessert. Who knew that these ingredients together would pack such a great taste wallop?! Put a cinnamon stick in your cup of coffee and enjoy this cake treat with it! Or enjoy with hot chocolate - both are great with it!

    Dalmatian Cake

    Jolene Bird from MCMINNVILLE, OR

    Every time I make this cake I get many compliments. The oatmeal makes it extra good. Not sure why the "seasoned baker" had so much trouble making this cake, I thought it was pretty simple. Next time I would double the frosting recipe, as you really have to spread it thin.

    Perfect as a wedding cake!!

    ACSA BUENING from Carrollton, TX

    I made this cake for a "mock wedding" at my kids' school using a Wilton wedding cake shapped pan. I used a different icing to accomplish the wedding cake look and it turned out awesome! Everyone was impressed and wanted the recipe, which I, of course, shared!

    Easter Treat

    laurie from north weymouth, MA

    I made this to bring as an Easter desert and everyone loved it . This recipe was not difficult to make, I used toffee chips instead of coconut on the top. I will definitely make this cake again.I was a lttlie nervous about the oatmeal but it just added to flavor .

    Outstanding!

    Janice Tillman from Madison, AL

    I often bake cakes for my husband to take to his office. When I sent in this cake, not only did the women in the office want the recipe, so did the men! This cake filled my house with the most outstanding smell, it was hard to keep it intake so it could make it to the office!

    Difficult to make, but end product is good!

    A Wigley from

    Unless you are a seasoned baker, I would suggest you NOT make this recipe. While it is possible for you to get it right, it was hard for me to make (I am a seasoned baker). I am not sure why. The ease of preparation was difficult. However, the taste of the finished product was great. I think you and your family will enjoy this recipe if you follow the directions precisely and do not deviate. Why not try this recipe today and see how it turns out?

    A keeper

    Lucie Fortier from Guilford, VT

    I made this cake for our semi-monthly Bingo. It was a big seller. My husband had a piece and he thought the frosting was a little too sweet. Nobody else complained that it was sweet. I surely will make it again especially for the Bingo Sunday.

    This cake was a hit! I used vanilla extract instead of almond (personal pref) and I sprinkled mini choc chips on top! We have a dalmation so the cake was a huge hit for that reason and for the taste! Thanks!
