    it's all in the frosting. i like a 1/3 cake, 2/3 icing ratio. i am the person who wants the corner piece. but only if it's good icing...not that crap stuff from the grocery store that tastes like cream. i want the sugar loaded stuff that makes your tummy ache. oh, and i'll tackle anybody to be the person who licks the candles...

    oops, missed the 2nd part: i don't really like the cake part that much, so flavor is not that important. but if i had to pick, white cake with rasberry filling.

    I like a nice balance of cake and icing. I'm not a big cake person in general, but my favorite is my mom's spice cake with white frosting. She makes one for me every year on my birthday!

    mmm...the frosting on the edge that's always left behind on the tray when you pick up a piece...that's the good stuff...

    My favorite cake is a Pennsylvania Dutch Funny Cake because it's in a pie crust. I like pie better than cake, hands down.

    Those are MY candles and I'm not sharing!!
    I love the corner piece with the frosting piled up .. preferably white cake, white frosting, the really sweet buttercream kind.
    And just for good measure ... I'll swipe that decorative edge of frosting that goes all around the bottom of the cake.

    I love the very middle piece, the perfect mixture of mostly cake but just enough icing. BUT, no store bought icing, it has to be the good stuff. My favorite is lemon cake and vanilla icing. Dang it, I don't think I can wait until July for my bday cake.

    Yellow cake with chocolate icing is my favorite. I'm allergic to milk, so I can't have ice cream. I don't like a think coating of icing, just enough.

    Heavy Double Chocolate Cake, the cake is the delicious part.

    The making a wish and blowing out the candles part. Beyond that, it's the frosting. Prefer to have marble cake with white frosting, and vanilla ice cream.

    I like one bite mostly frosting and the next mostly cake though I usually try to end with mostly frosting. Oh and you can have my candles. Type of cake? My mom makes a stellar red chocolate cake and it has been my favorite since I was a kid.

    The cake/icing combo. Ice cream is a whole other thing and I don't like the two combined...I love spice cake with that white tub frosting with about a zillion calories a teaspoon? yeah, that's the stuff...

    after reading all the posts, i have a question: does anybody else buy the tubs of icing and eat them by the spoonful...no cake?

    My wife's "family recipe" mayonnaise cake is my favorite, though the last few years I've been making myself pineapple upside down ones to keep her from having to make one because she's usually working and I get the whole week of my birthday off every year (our plant shuts down from Christmas through New Years and I'm in between).

    I don't really like cake.
    Gingerbread with lemon sauce
    or Key lime pie would be my choice.

    Frosting for me. I always try to get the corner just so I can get more frosting. Carrot cake, black forest cake, and german chocolate are my favorite.

    danielle, I've never eaten tubs of frosting on their own, but my mom always put the extra left over after frosting the cake between graham crackers for a snack!

    If I am gonna just have frosting, I make it but yeah...there are times when it just needs to be done.
