Katrinas Bacon-Laced Chocolate Cake

Yes, you read that correctly. Bacon and chocolate -- everyone's favorite indulgences -- together at last. It's a perfectly decadent combination, and an ideal cake for a dad's birthday bash! The chopped bacon goes in the frosting, not the cake, so leave it out if you want a vegetarian-friendly dessert.

German Chocolate Cake

This chocolate cake with coconut-pean topping deserves special attention. Cakes require accurate oven temperatures to bake to perfection. Check oven temperatures occasionally. In too-hot ovens, cakes may develop tunnels and cracks. Too-cool oven cause cakes to become coarse.
