The cakes that I like to make are extra moist and dense–and you’ll be surprised to learn that making bakery-quality cakes at home can be quite simple! The key is to use the right ingredients, and to spread out each step so you aren’t overwhelmed by fillings, frostings and cakes all at the same time. I’m excited to share the tips and tricks and sometimes unconventional methods I’ve learned over the last 11.5 years at Amycakes Bakery that help make scratch-baking at home more manageable. I am currently formatting all my recipes for home kitchens (it’s been quite an adjustment from baking 10+ cakes in every batch and using commercial convection ovens!). But I’ve found that baking from home can be therapeutic, relaxing and rewarding.

If you are already a seasoned baker then I will be flattered if you want to try my recipes. Or if you are a beginner who’s been intimidated by baking from home, let me show you my secrets to help make baking more approachable! Please sign up for my newsletter if you’d like to be notified when my recipes are ready. 😊

UPDATE 4/30/21: Here’s a chart with our current recipe requests on this post, which will help me in deciding what to work on first! I will keep updating so please comment below if you’d like to add to this!

  1. I just came across your website and after reading some of your tips, I am so sad I never got to try one of your cakes!! I would love to know how to make your vanilla almond and pumpkin spice cake πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. Hi, Amy. I have had your delicious cakes in the past and am sad to know you will no longer be operating in the way you were on Walnut street, but at equally happy for you and your family in the next chapter. It’s wonderful that you’re still available though! I would love to have and try your recipe for the coconut cream cake. Don’t think I ever tried it, there was once a place in Memphis that had an incredible moist, rich, and delicate but not too sweet depth of flavor. Having had some of your cakes, I’d imagine your coconut cream is comparable to the one that visits me in my dreams:)
    Thank you for opening your baker’s heart and sharing your recipe collection !

  3. Cindy Hentschel says:

    Hi, l enjoyed reading all your comments about scratch cakes. I have never had anything from your bakery, (l live on Maryland) they sound delicious. I was hoping l could get your recipes for stawberry, and vanilla almond.

    1. Thanks so much Cindy! I’m glad you came across my site and I’ll be sharing those recipes in a few weeks! πŸ™‚

  4. Where do I begin, our courtship began over your famous cinnamon rolls and coffee. When he proposed our cake tasting choice was Vanilla Almond w Raspberry filling. Every guest at our wedding said it was the best cake ever! Even those guests who ‘didn’t like’ cake took seconds! Would be so thrilled to try to recreate this in my kitchen. We still have two very special glass birds we bought from you for our topper ( I have promised to will them back to you & Gabe for your nest). Thanks for always making our special days so memorable, you are such a blessing and we wish you and your precious family all the best God has to offer. Love, Julie & David

    1. That made my day, Julie! I’m so happy we got to make yours and David’s wedding cake, and see you both for cinnamon rolls and treats throughout the years. ❀️ Looking forward to sharing the Raspberries β€˜n’ Cream cake recipe so you both can continue to enjoy it! πŸ™‚

  5. Hi!!! I would love to know how to make the orange almond cake. I can’t believe the bakery is closing. Amycakes was always my first choice for my birthday cake. 😒

    1. Thank you, Harlee! The Orange Almond was one of our little known flavors, but once people tried it they were hooked! πŸ™‚

  6. I would love your recipe for the vanilla almond cake and your cinnamon chip cookies.
    Loved the texture and taste of those cookies.

    I would love to get the recipe/tutorial for the golden strawberry. It was our only one we ever got because it was so delicious it was hard to pick another. My husband doesn’t like cakes as a general rule but LOVED that cake. We just recently learned that you shut your doors and I’m bummed to say the very least. I’m quite excited to learn you will be sharing recipes though! Can’t wait to try it in my home!!
