50+ Easy Cake Recipes

These cakes are simple – you can make the cake from scratch or use a cake mix from a box. The icing of each one is simply buttercream or whipped icing (no recipe fondant in these recipes!).

Some of these cakes (such as Crepe Cake and Ice Cream Cake) are a fun twist on a traditional cake – my kids like to mix and try different things.
