Who doesn't love cake? There's perhaps no dessert that makes you feel more special. It's how we celebrate birthdays and graduations. It's the rarefied treat at engagement parties and weddings - and the way we welcome old friends and new babies. Whether it's a cupcake with coffee at the neighbour's house or a three-layer slice at the end of an extravagant meal, cake is a sweet, simple indulgence that makes you feel loved and a little better about the world. And who knows more about cakes than Southern Living, the magazine that outdoes itself every year with new pedestal-topping cakes? Its trusted kitchens and pages have launched or popularized some of the South's - and America's - most iconic and decadent cakes, from Hummingbird Cake to Red Velvet Cupcakes.
