Tangled Cake III

Somewhat inspired by this cake, this was a Tangled cake for Taylor's 5th birthday. Imagine Tangled character figurines on there (supplied by the birthday girl)! :)
The cake was vanilla with cookies n' cream filling. The tower is made from rice krispy treats.

TWD- Rewind Basic Marbled Loaf

This was last week's TWD, but this week's TWD for Brown Sugar Bundt required too many nuts and dried fruit for my tastes. But check out the list of TWD'ers who did it here.
This basic loaf cake was simple to put together- it only takes a few ingredients and about 15 minutes to get in the oven. I just made the basic chocolate and vanilla, but in the Playing Around section, there are plenty of other suggestions for tasty combinations.
Dorie suggests several marbling techniques, none of which I used because I was being lazy. Hence, mine was more double-decker than marbled.
This loaf was really good- very dense and rich (the slices pictured were WAY too big). I substituted almond extract for the vanilla and loved the combination with the chocolate.
This is a great, quick breakfast or a gift for your neighbors! The Bake More has the recipe here!
