    One of my favorite blends is H&H Anniversary Kake. I love the presentation. My problem is there is no way to search for other tobaccos that are produced in this form. Does anyone have any suggestions for a blend similar to AnniKake?

    Marble Kake, Classic Burley Kake, Briar Fox, is Pirate Kake a kake?

    Yes, but it's not similar to Anni Kake... Anni Kake is a VaPer, Pirate Kake is a Lat bomb.

    You can search smokingpipes.com and tobaccoreviews.com for "kake" or "cake" to get some ideas, but you will have to read the descriptions to see if any of them are similar to Anni Kake.

    I was just naming kakes I could think of, that seemed to be the question.

    H&H Royal Blunder Kake (bulk only) for a nice mild (light-latakia!) oriental-forward blend in the kake form. Oh, and C&D's Pirate Kake is very much the lat-bomb, IMO, but the lat-hounds adore it.

    Sorry, I thought this was the question:
    Perhaps I inferred (incorrectly) that the question included flavor profile, when it was simply about presentation.

    I'm sorry, I should have been clearer. I mentioned I loved the presentation which would lead anyone to believe I meant any tobacco in cake form. I am looking for a tobacco similar in both taste and presentation. VAs, VaPers, Burleys etc. Thank y'all so much for the input.

    Look up C&D's Briar Fox, Night Train & Kajun Kake. Also as mentioned H&H Marble Kake and Burley Kake. If you ever get a chance to pick up a tin of Butera's Kingfisher, do it. But it'll be a rare find.

    And if you really don't mind a Lat bomb, C&D Black Frigate is an excellent choice (IMO, of course).

    There is no substitute for Anni Kake, except more Anni Kake.

    Speaking of which, I better make another order!

    Yeah AK is one that I'm ageing a lot of, I have a really good feeling about it in 1 year, 5 and 10. This is going to be giving us a big suprise.

    But you read the post how I meant it to read. I did a poor job communicating.

    Sherlock Holmes Pipe Club (SHPC) VR blend is a VaPer crumble cake, and is available from P&C as well.

    I prefer Anniversary Kake, but it might be worth checking out, as it gets generally favorable reviews.

    Classic burley kake from H and H is good. Seattle Pipe Club's Mississippi River is a Crumble Kake and it is amazing. I highly suggest it. You can only get it from pipesandcigars.com
