Alice Rohart from Baltimore was looking for a recipe for a cake her mom used to make when she was growing up that she called a Gypsy round layer cake. She said her mom baked a lot and she fondly remembers this cake as being a lovely combination of spice and chocolate with chopped nuts, topped with a delicious buttercream frosting. She wanted help finding the recipe so she could make it and bring back old memories. I located a recipe for a Gypsy round cake in the American Profile magazine Hometown Cookbook that likely is the one Rohart was searching for. In this cookbook, American Profile magazine celebrates hometown life in America by inviting readers to send in their favorite recipes for publication.

So Maryland Speaker of the House Michael E. Busch and fellow "high-rolling" Democrats guffawed at Bill Clinton's joking about the contrast between public housing and the "posh estate" when they were gathered Tuesday night for a million-dollar fund-raiser, reveling in "one of Maryland's wealthiest communities" ( "Brown gets boost from Bill Clinton," Oct. 1). And this from the Democratic Party that likes to portray itself as so caring and compassionate, yet is so entrenched in one-party rule as to be only beholden to millionaire donors and lobbyists.

Customers of Towson's artisan bakery La Cakerie could easily mistake their surroundings for an enlarged dollhouse kitchen; high-pitched strains of pop music bounce off pink walls and the aroma of baking cake batter wafts through the air. Owner and executive chef Jason Hisley opened the West Allegheny Avenue location seven months ago, relocating from nearby West Chesapeake Avenue and joining La Cakerie's sales location in Mount Vernon. Listening to suggestions from a new crop of busy working professionals, Hisley expanded La Cakerie from its pastry roots.

Nancy Hawkins from Oliver Springs, Tenn., was looking for the recipe for a cake that a woman she worked with brought into her office for a birthday celebration. It was chocolate cake that was just dumped out of the pan and had "oodles and oodles of scrumptious melted chocolate inside." Hawkins said the woman who made the cake called it an "Aussie dump cake," but she would never share her recipe. While I did not receive any responses from readers about this cake, I knew that a "dump cake" was not that uncommon.

The guest of honor flitted through the chic new restaurant in a black suit and pumps, surrounded by colleagues, well-wishers and staff members angling for a moment with the boss. Those moments come to an end at noon today, when Mayor Sheila Dixon becomes simply Sheila Dixon. Forced to resign as part of a plea deal to settle a criminal case, Dixon's last full day as mayor began at a meeting of the city's spending board and wound down at a happy hour party at Milan, the new Little Italy hot spot.

The world's first mass-produced, certified gluten-free crab cake? At least a Maryland company is making it. Bread crumbs used in typical crab cakes contain gluten, a type of protein found in wheat, barley or rye that many people — potentially millions worldwide — have trouble digesting. So Salisbury-based Handy International Corp., which has been in business since 1903, found a way around the problem. After months of testing recipes, the seafood company crafted a version with crumbs made with rice flour.

Mary Beth York from Niles, Mich., was copying some old recipes a friend had collected over the years and stuck in the back of a cookbook from 1942 when she came across one called "Crisco Breath o' Spring" cake. Unfortunately, there was some damage to the recipe and she was unable to read parts of it. Apparently, the recipe was on the label of a can of Crisco, but when York contacted the Crisco company, she was told that they do not save all their old recipes and no longer had the one she was looking for. York was hoping someone still had the recipe and would be willing to share it with her. Diane Jensen from Alamogordo, N.M., sent in the recipe for the cake York was looking for that Jensen said was copied from a photograph of the original Crisco advertisement from 1945.

Sophie Filippetti from Santa Rosa, Calif., was searching for a recipe for Italian king's cake. She said her mother-in-law used to make it often and even won first prize at their county fair some time ago. She has lost the recipe and wanted to be able to make it for her family again. Kathleen McMalin from Potter Valley, Calif., sent in a recipe for torta del re - king's cake in Italian. Not to be confused with the king cake common during Mardi Gras in New Orleans, this traditional, flour-less almond cake from the Piedmont region of northern Italy is a popular choice for Passover dessert.

Alice McKeehan of Elkhart, Ind., wanted help locating a recipe for making a Twinkie cake. Her friend who used to make it has died, and McKeehan cannot find her copy of the recipe. All she can really remember is that it was an easy, no-bake cake that had Hostess' Twinkies as the base layer. According to the Hostess website, the Continental Baking Co. first made Twinkies in 1930. Although Hostess briefly went out of business in 2012 amid bankruptcy and an employee strike, Twinkies are back on the shelves and have been a part of the American snack food culture for the better part of a century.

Every spring and summer, almost like clockwork, I receive multiple recipe requests for the Baltimore peach cake. Linda Terlizzi from Hanover, Pa., was one of several readers looking for the recipe this year. She said from the time she was a young child in the 1950s, her family loved the fresh peach cake made at the New System Bakery on 36th Street in Hampden. The bakery has since closed, and Terlizzi said she has yet to find a peach cake that equals the one from there. Peach cake is one of those uniquely Baltimore things, like coddies, that live long in people's memories.

Susan Kuhn from Monkton was looking for a recipe for a dessert that her mother used to serve. As she recalls, it was made with pieces of angel food cake, fruit cocktail and whipped topping, and had the consistency of a pudding once it had been chilled. Barbara Crowley Booth from Baltimore saw Kuhn's request and thought it sounded familiar to her. She searched her recipe files and found one that her mother, Agnes Crowley , had written down for her many years ago. Booth hoped it was what Kuhn was in looking for. Her mother called it "Great and Easy Dessert.

"Ace of Cakes" star Duff Goldman whipped up an array of rainbow-colored cakes for Katy Perry's new "Birthday" video. The founder of Charm City Cakes made confections shaped as a cat, a suit (a "birthday suit"), a Rubik's cube, a hamburger and a gift, among others, for the pop singer's video, according to People .  Perry plays a baker in the video, placing cakes on pedestals, spelling out words with candies. The lyrics to the song are written out on icing or with other sweets throughout the video.  That took a lot of close collaboration between the producers and the staff of Cakemix , Goldman's Los Angeles bakery.

The article on how to slice calories from sweets was informative from the baker's point of view, but from a health point of view it was quite disappointing ("Slicing calories from cake," Nov. 10). For this article not to include the health implications of artificial sweeteners does a big disservice to those who might consume them. I realize that this article was placed in the "Taste" section and not the "Health" section, but information like this should be more sensitive to health implications that may exist, as we should not be just concerned about caloric intake.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner! Except replace chicken dinner with doughnut breakfast. After four weeks, the Rodgers Forge Elementary Walking School Bus Doughnut Challenge has concluded. And the winner is: the Heathfield South route. Led by Marianne Lohr, Michelle Dinsmore and Holly Storck, this route far and away surpassed the other routes - not only in number of "riders" (37) but in the number of adults who signed up to "drive" the bus (20). Word must have spread that the Heathfield South route won the contest, because on March 5, 20 kids showed up for their jelly-filled reward. And there was much rejoicing.
