Mom always made the best cakes, and everyone loved them. There were a few additions to her cakes, which I am sharing here. Although the best cake we ever made was when my Dad baked a cake for her and let me help (she was very sick at the time). He was the first to add a splash of beer, and when I was shocked, he then said I could put anything in that I wanted, so of course a fist full of M&Ms were my choice. It was amazingly good, and since the beer cooked off, I could eat it (mom passed away when I was 7, this was for her birthday cake when I was 6).

How to Make Mom's Cake Additions (And Dad's, LOL)


  1. Mom added Mayo to white cakes, yellow cakes, ones that peanut butter might not taste to good with...
  2. Mom added Peanut Butter in chocolate cakes, or cakes she wanted that peanut butter flavor to come out.
  3. Dad made a cake for mom's birthday when I was 6 (her birthday was in Jan), adding his touch of beer, and my touch of M&Ms.
  4. No matter what you choose to add, these will make people rave about your cake! Add as much as you like, she used a heaping spoon, but you can always add more!
