Hunka Burnin' Love Cake

The first version of our Hunka Burnin’ Love cake was created in the late ’80s at Zingerman’s Delicatessen. Then, as today, the Deli version is a whopping 7-pound cake! It’s a four-layer, 9-inch round cake that can easily satisfy 30 people. (The Deli serves big pieces though, so each cake is cut into 16 slices for individual sale.) The cake itself is a fudgy, dense, chocolate butter cake filled and iced with lusciously smooth dark chocolate buttercream. 

In this class, we’ll teach you how to create a more modest-sized Hunka Burnin’ Love cake* that is great for birthdays or just everyday enjoyment. 

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and the 8-inch, 2-layer Hunka Burnin' Love cake you made in class.

We'll end the in-person class with a cake tasting and you'll go home with some great coupons.

*Please note, for the virtual class, you’ll need a stand mixer with paddle and whisk attachments.

My Weigh Kitchen Scale


A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!

The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. The price includes ground shipping.
