Need cake suggestions

It's my turn to bring in a cake for a co-worker's birthday, which is next week. We'll probably eat the cake in the morning, so I don't want anything too heavy or decadent. Another requirement is that it be easy to transport, so no runny icings!

Any good recipe suggestions? Thanks in advance!

  1. I have never made this but a friend has and said it was good. Can't get easier than this lol
    Good Luck!!

    1. I just did a apricot/lemon chiffon cake from the Cake Mix Doctors book. It is light like an angel food, has a nice light glaze that I suppose you can omit. It begins with a cake mix and uses Kern's Apricot nectar and lemon juice. I sent it in to my husband's office for a morning meeting and they loved it

      1. Maida Heatter's East 62nd Street Lemon Cake. The recipe is googlable.

        1. angle food cake, homemade whipped cream and fresh berries (if you can get any good ones right now) that have been dusted with sugar

          1. This would be a good cake for the morning. It's a gingerbread cake.
