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 06/18/21:

Here’s a chart with the current recipe requests on this post, which will help me in deciding what to work on first! Feel free to cast your vote below (you can also just click “view results” at the bottom of the poll).

Thanks for Reading. ❤️

I keep seeing comments for the Elvis cake. I’m super curious, what is an Elvis cake?

I am a soldier who lives in Oklahoma City and drills in Springfield. One day a couple of years ago I happened to come across Amycakes, and I was so happy to have found something to look forward to every drill weekend! I always made sure to drop buy and at least get a cake truffle for myself while I was in town, but also every time we had a birthday in our unit or someone getting out of the Army, I’d come buy stuff to share with my platoon.
I was heartbroken when the store closed. I was so sad to think that I would never be able to enjoy those cake truffles again.
So, thank you for putting these recipes up for everyone. They are sentimental to me and to many others I’m sure.

Amy,
We lived in Springfield for 8 years ago and have tried cakes from all over, and none of them compare to yours! Our favorite was the Elvis, the orange almond cake, and the maple cinnamon rolls. We now live in NC and miss Amycakes so much! I’m so excited to try one of your recipes at home. Thank you for sharing them with us!

I would love a citrus cake! Lemon or orange poppyseed perhaps. I also loved buying your cinnamon rolls. They were always delightful. A wonderful hummingbird cake is always a summer treat as well. I am preparing my bakeware so I can start making some of your delicious recipes. #stoked Thank you so much for sharing your recipes and tips.

As you know, Bob loves your cinnamon rolls. I have tinkered with various recipes for years, and some were pretty good, but once he tasted yours, he hasn’t liked a cinnamon roll from anywhere else. I would love to have the recipe! Thank you for the first newsletter. I’m already on my way to better cakes!

My daughter graduated in 2011 and we had a Raspberry Lemonade (?) cake for her party. She’s getting married August 7th and that’s the one speciality cake she requested. We’d love to have the recipe for it to add to the cake selection. I was sad when I looked up the website to order the the cakes for the wedding and you were closing. Best of luck in this new venture.

I would love to have your Cinnamon Roll recipe. I always looked forward to stopping by for a fresh cinnamon roll weekly. After I moved away I would always buy a pan of rolls to share with family while visiting. I would also love your strawberry cake, vanilla cake, and coconut cake recipes. Thank you so much!

I would love the recipe for the cinnamon rolls! My brother served your cinnamon rolls instead of cake at his wedding, and it was always a staple at work retirement parties!

Your strawberry lemonade cake was amazing. It is how I celebrated each birthday I had while in Springfield for school. Your bakery was one of very few things that made Springfield enjoyable while I was there for school. Thank you so much!

My sister has ordered a lemon cake (with curd) for her wedding anniversary every year since 2012. It would be an amazing anniversary gift for her to be able to keep up that tradition with a homemade version. Thanks for the memories!

We would looooooove the recipe for the snickerdoodle cake, though all the cakes are delicious!!! My husband bought me two of the 9 pack cake samplers for my birthday, so I’ve tried 18 flavors and they really are ALL so good!

I visited your bakery 10 years ago while on vacation in Missouri. Your cupcakes were amazing! I would love the strawberry cupcake with strawberry frosting recipe. I have never found a strawberry cupcake as good as yours. Congratulations on your new adventure.

Your frosting is my absolute favorite!! I’m not normally a frosting eater. Vanilla almond is my favorite but your chocolate was about the only chocolate cake I’d buy. I also would LOVE your sugar cookie recipe. It’s been a LONG time since we’ve had those but used to order and get them from the case – family favorite!! Thank you so much for sharing!!! Love your tips already!
