Do you wish you had a list of the best cake recipes that you could use for any holiday?
Sometimes, we find out last minute that we need to bring a dessert to a party or event. Or we find out that more people are coming to our house for a holiday event than originally expected.
Wouldn’t it be easy to have a go-to list that you could save on Pinterest and always have handy for those emergency cake situations?
Worry no more- that list is here!
Best Cake Recipes: The Needed Items
One thing that I have found is that it is so important to always have some things on handy so you can be ready to make a cake recipe whenever you need to.
Not that cakes require too many items, but I like to make sure that I have the basics to start with.
The first one is to make sure you always have a mixer. That way, you can crank out any of the best cake recipes at any time.
Of course, the Kitchen Aid Mixer is one of the top favorites (click here to see all the colors it comes in!). This mixer has EVERYTHING that you need and more. To be honest, you don’t only have to use it for baking- it comes in handy a lot when it comes to cooking as well!

If the Kitchen Aid Mixer is out of your price range, there are some great hand-mixers as well.
To have a variety of cake pans always available is essential when it comes to being able to make a cake on the fly. You don’t want to have everything handy but not have a place to put the cake!
Other Needed Items To Always Have on Hand for Baking For all the Best Cake Recipes
Cake pans and mixers are definitely the top two priorities for baking necessities. However, there are a few other smaller items that are great to always have on hand as well:
Measuring Spoons (The ones from Pioneer Woman are my favorite!)
How Do I Choose the Best Cake Recipe?
I purposely chose 30 of the best cake recipes that could be used at any time of the year, no matter the occasion. There are a few things you may want to consider before choosing which cake to whip up:
- How many people does this cake have to serve?
- How much time do I have to prepare this cake?
- What type of flavors am I looking for?
