15 Mind-Blowingly Delicious Cake Recipes

15 Mind-Blowingly Delicious Cake Recipes

1. Hot Fudge Sundae Cake

sundae

    Yeah, you read that correctly. A cake that is also an ice cream sundae. This is absolutely the best of both worlds when it comes to desserts. Need I say more?

        4. Vegan Chocolate and Avocado Cake

        avocado

          Just hear me out on this one. Avocado gets a bad wrap. For some reason, it’s primarily associated with savory food, particularly of the Mexican variety. While I’m a huge fan of these uses, I promise you that it is also an amazing addition to sweeter food too. I personally use it in my morning smoothies and I’ve even made avocado ice cream with a strawberry coulis on more than one occasion. It’s delicious. So be brave and open your mind to something new and tasty. You won’t be disappointed!Recipe Source

          5. Coffee and Donuts Cake

            6. Key Lime Cheesecake

              You may have noticed a slight pattern when it comes to my cake choices. I love anything with an element of duality, and this one is no different. The combination of key lime pie and cheesecake is perfection, in my opinion.Recipe Source

              7. Red Velvet Cake

                There’s nothing quite like a good old fashioned red velvet cake, and this one is particularly incredible.Recipe Source

                8. Cappuccino Pavlova

                cappuccino

                  Being Australian, including a pavlova on this list is obligatory. However, Nigella has recreated it with a delicious caffeine-soaked twist.Recipe Source

                  9. Maple Bacon Cheesecake

                  maplebacon

                    Some people may say that the whole bacon trend has been blown way out of proportion. I absolutely disagree. Maple syrup and bacon on a cake? Hell, yes. All bacon, all the time.

                    10. Overloaded Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

                    cookie

                      A cake that combines cookies, caramel and marshmallows. I’m pretty sure that’s the definition of mind-blowing.Recipe Source

                      11. Cookies and Cream Cupcakes

                        Cookies-and-cream is one of my favorite flavors in the world, which is why I love the idea of these cupcakes. Plus, you get a bonus cookie on top!

                        12. Mojito Cupcakes

                        mojito

                          Can’t decide between dessert and cocktail hour? Now, you don’t have to!

                          13. Chocolate-Raspberry Bavarian Torte

                          torte

                            Not only is this cake delectable, its presentation is astonishing.

                            carbomb

                              Admittedly, this is the second alcohol-related recipe on this list. This does not mean that I have a problem. I’m simply celebrating my Irish heritage with Jameson, Baileys, and chocolate.

                              15. Banana Cake with Salted Caramel Icing

                              banana cake

                                This is about as close as you can get to a banoffee pie in cake form. Much like bacon, some say that salted caramel has been getting too much press lately. Those people are wrong. So very, very wrong.

                                8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                                8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                                We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                                On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                                Advertising

                                Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                                1. Smart Door Locks

                                A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                                2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                                Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                                3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                                If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                                4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                                These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                                5. Nest Thermostat

                                This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                                6. Smart Lighting

                                Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                                7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                                Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                                8. Canary

                                This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
