Apple Crumble Cake Recipe

Apple crumble cake recipe |

Lainey, my daughter, wanted to make a cake yesterday so we used my apple crumble cake recipe and made this delicious treat!

The crumble cake is filled with lots of apples, plus there's a touch of apple cider vinegar in the cake batter to give it a little brightness. The crumble topping is beyond yummy with lots of cinnamon and sugar. I made sure to put on extra crumble because I know how much Lainey loves it! This is the perfect cake for fall because the apples and cinnamon will really warm you up.

The Fake Cake

by Jillian Leslie on

Looks real, right?

This is a brilliant cost-saving idea.  Let's say you're throwing a party and want one of those beautiful designer cakes but don't want to spend the money, what do you do?  Buy a fake cake instead.

The fake cakes are covered in fondant, which is what cake designers use, but underneath it, pure Styrofoam.  And the idea is this... At your party, everyone gets to marvel at your beautiful cake, but then when it's time to eat it, it gets taken to the kitchen to be "cut" and instead you serve a much less expensive sheet cake in the same colors in it's place.
