Perhaps you are hosting a holiday dinner this year, or you just want to add more desserts to your culinary toolbox, but we feel like we can never learn enough ways to satisfy our sweet tooth! So we invited former restaurant owner, Toni Jorgensen, on to share her favorite cake recipes. She shared one that would go perfectly with Thanksgiving dinner, a festive Pumpkin Spice Cake, and one that many would call a birthday staple, Confetti Cake. Here are the recipes:
