Fourteen for the Fourteenth

Fourteen Layer Cake. This is apparently a favorite at family get togethers in the South. Now, I’m from the South and I’ve never heard of such a thing. Actually, when I first heard the name, I didn’t believe it. Fourteen individually baked layers … no way. Who would do that? And… why? Then, I thought, it must be good if someone goes to that much trouble. And I did want something new to bake for Valentine’s Day.

Hmmm…let the googling begin.

Well, they do exist. In no time, I had the recipe for a 10-Layer Cake, a 12-Layer Cake and a 14-Layer Cake.

Looks like I’ve been going to the wrong parties.

I decided to go with the 12-Layer Cake recipe because it looked like it would work the best for me. The 10 would be too small and the one for the 14 called for cutting the cake layers and I didn’t think that would go very well. So I used the 12 and just poured it into fourteen pans. Fourteen aluminum foil pans. That way I didn’t have to wait for the pans to cool and be cleaned in between baking. This was a huge time saver.

Here they are … fourteen – 8.5″ pans… Shiny!

Aluminum Pans

Then, I cut 14 sheets of parchment paper, stapled them together and cut out circles the same size as the bottom of the pan.

Getting ready

I decided to err on the side of caution with greasing the pans, because fourteen stuck cakes would make me very unhappy.
So, I greased the bottom and sides with a stick of butter. Then, I laid the parchment circles down and lightly buttered and floured the top of the parchment paper.

Please work!

Fourteen Layer Cake Pans

While those are waiting, I mixed up all the ingredients for the cake batter -
the HUGE amount of cake batter. (Mom, if you’re reading this… thank you again for my Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. I love it.)

Cake Batter

Then I placed a heaping 2/3 cup full of batter in each pan.

Fourteen Layer Cake

Then, just spread it out as evenly as possible.

Fourteen Layer Cake

I was able to bake three cakes at a time. Each set baked for 12 minutes at 350 degrees, (the recipe says 375, but I went with 350). So that means there were five sets at 12 minutes each. (About an hour to bake. Not too bad.)

When the last batch of cakes go in the oven, it’s a good time to start making the icing.

Then, after the icing cools and before it hardens, you can start spreading a little bit on the top of each layer of cooled cake. Before you start… place the cake on a cake board. Place the board on a wire rack. And place the wire rack over a jelly roll pan to catch any icing that drips.

2 layers

and it will drip…

6 layers

and drip…

8 layers

and drip…

14 layers

and drip. It kinda looks like chocolate covered pancakes!

Right about now, I had to control myself from taking a big huge bite right out of the side. YUM!
When you’re done with the last layer, pour any extra icing over the top and spread it around the sides to cover.

Chocolate covered cake

Now, based on the recipe, you’re done. You can let the icing set and eat it right up. The finished cake will look something like this.

Fourteen Layer Cake

I didn’t really like that too much, so I whipped up a quick dark chocolate buttercream frosting and covered the cake to even out the top and sides.

Frosted Fourteen Layer Cake

There… much better. (I know, I know. It lost some of the “homemade, old-fashioned feel.”)

But, I think if you served the cake like this, no one would suspect there were lots of little layers inside.

And, when you finally cut it open, people would be like… wow!

Fourteen Layer Cake

I MEAN WOW!!!!!!!!

Fourteen Layer Cake Side View

I can’t tell you how happy I was to finally cut into this cake and see how pretty it was… and even better, that it worked. And, it was really good and super moist, too. YAY!

Sliced Cake

Enjoy!

Fourteen Layer Cake

The recipe I used:
The Smith Family’s 12-Layer Cake (used with 14 pans)

Some other recipes you might like:
10-Layer Cake (Smith Island Cake Recipe)
14-Layer Cake (uses a cake mix)
14-Layer Cake (you cut the layers with this one)

Dark Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
8 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder ( I used Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa)
1 box (1 lb) confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1-3 Tbsp milk

  • Cream the butter and cream cheese with a mixer.
  • Add the cocoa and vanilla.
  • Add the confectioner’s sugar in small batches and blend on low until combined. Scrape down sides with each addition.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time until you get the consistency you desire.

Some helpful tools:
Aluminum foil cake pans
Cake board
Cake rack
Jellyroll pan

Happy Baking!

My first time visiting your site “wink”! This reminds me of Baumkuhen = ) “Fourteen aluminum foil pans. That way I didn’t have to wait for the pans to cool and be cleaned in between baking. This was a huge time saver.”

I so know what you mean… okay I must admit after I have a huge baking feast.. my feet hurt, did yours?

The layer cake looks like a la chic layer cake, very chic and your photography amazing!

derYou just brought back such wonderful memories for me. This was my first year without a cake like this in my life. My grandma died last year on this very week. So, this holiday season we didn’t have one. You have inspired me to start making them MYSELF and carry on the tradition. Thank you so very, very much. Prissy D.

That looks amazing! I’ll have to try it someday.

I have a question. Since you label all your posts would it be possible to have a listing of all your labels in a side bar? Like you do for your archive? You have so many great recipes but they’re not easily accessible. You have to go through each month to browse previous posts. If I’m not making any sense this blog has a listing of all her labels. http://www.beantownbaker.blogspot.com/

Thank you and I cannot wait for your next creation!

My great grandmother used to make 21 layer cakes. They were CRAZY. My mom and my sister both make the smaller version, maybe 10 or so layers. Also, nobody has ever been able to recreate my great grandmother’s icing. We have the recipe. She’s still alive and can tell us any secrets…but yet it still never works out the same.

Hi I know that others have commented that this is the official Maryland dessert.
THE SMITH ISLAND 10 LAYER CAKE
link below for the real recipe

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=88412262

the secret to this cake is the icing
and I do hope that all bakers will note that the sugar listed in your 10 layer cake recipe list sugar
this is important because it
should be POWDERED SUGAR NOT GRANULATED SUGAR
won’t you please try our smith island recipe next time with the fudge icing thanks bella

I’m from NC and we have made this cake as long as I can remember. It’s a must have for Christmas. My aunt Joyce is the master baker in our family and her cakes usually come out with at least 24 layers. She even made one with 31 layers for my 30th birthday. The extra one was for the coming year. It was about 10-in. tall.

Thanks so much for posting this.

I am making it next week for my son’s birthday. He’s fourteen! He loved the idea and I’m glad to have an excuse to try this.

I think it’s a nice idea for kids’ birthdays, you can adjust the layers to their age. I love it.

Jennifer said...

That’s an awesome cake! I’ve never had a cake with so many layers. Definitely looks much better with the extra frosting.
I may have to try making this sometime (and will probably also go buy myself some aluminum cake pans for the same reason you used them. So much easier!).

Bakerella said...

Girl Japan – cool name. I’ll have to look that up

Kathy – it was me :) jj

Buhri – it was a chocolate icing that’s cooked. There is a link to it in the post for the 12-layer cake recipe.

Prissy – sorry about your grandma. you should totally carry on the tradition

emsres – will do

Sue – I’ll see what I can work out.

Anonymous – I would have tried the Smith Island version, but I was afraid it wouldn’t be enough for 14 layers. Next time for sure. And I’ll fix the link to forward to the right version of the Smith Island Cake recipe

Cassonia – that’s talent.

Anya – embrace it.

Angela – you’re welcome

Beth Paulson – man… you’re quick!

slepre – it might. , you may want to adjust the amounts a little though.

Selina – ha … but his navey buds would probably get a chuckle

Reese – hmmmmm… maybe

Beverly – nope – the cooked icing is in the recipe for the 12-layer cake. The extra frosting I added at the end is different.

Niki – cheer up.

tamela – love it.

Elizabeth – these came out perfectly with the parchment paper.

Jodie – 21/2 hours

Blogger by…K@ Ashcroft – sure.

Andrew’s Mom – crepes… hmm… maybe that should be next

Bakerella, I wanted to share with you something that I did for my daughter’s bake sale that was around Valentine’s Day. I made heart shaped pops that looked like Conversation Hearts. I am new to blogging so I am not sure how to share the photo. I would love to show it to you.

I didn’t realize this is a southern thing! My husband’s grandmother makes this at Christmas each year… and she is true blue Southern lady! She does it as a sheet cake though and it lasts all through the visitors at Christmas. She alternates colors… red and green. It is really pretty! She sticks it in the freezer and when people come by, it comes out and slabs are cut off… it is really yummy just a little bit frozen still!

It does look almost like a crepe cake like someone said.

Wonderful job!

Dearest Bakerella,
I have long admired/lurked your blog and now I am planning my daughter’s first birthday party and was wondering if I could use two pictures of your cakes on my blog. Specifically the lovely 14 layer cake and the cute mini cakes messy, sassy, and classy. Since a one year old cannot tell me what she wants I thought I would have the blogging world cast a vote. Of course I will site your work as yours. My blog is neillarsonfamily.blogspot.com. Let me know if thats ok with you.
Thanks,
Meredith Larson
