Dark Chocolate Mock-Mix Cake

By summerki About This Recipe: This is a great stand-in for a devil’s food cake mix. It differs from the vanilla variation by the addition of cocoa powder and the corresponding reduction of flour and using water instead of buttermilk (which can mute the chocolate flavor). The addition of cocoa powder eliminates the need for the cornstarch since it acts as a starch would in the batter. Dutch processed cocoa gives a rich chocolate flavor to the cake with a beautiful dark color. My favorite cocoa powder is Pernigotti which has incredible chocolate aroma and as an... read more

Light Chocolate Mock-Mix Cake

By summerki About This Recipe: This chocolate cake, similar to German chocolate cake, has a mild chocolate flavor that can meld well with many buttercreams and fillings. In this cake, whole eggs are used because the presence of lecithin in the chocolate acts sufficiently as an emulsifier and negates the need for the added yolks. This is a recipe referenced in the Cake Central Magazine article on cake mixes.       Ingredients: 1 ½ cups (10 ½ ounces) sugar 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) vegetable shortening or unsalted butter 8 tablespoons... read more

White Almond Sour Cream (WASC) Mock-Mix Cake

By summerki About This Recipe: While the name of this cake says it is has almond in it, my variation does not. The name is a nod to the popular mix-doctored cake attributed to Rebecca Sutterby. This cake is the vanilla mock-mix variation doctored in a similar way that the WASC cake is. There are endless variations of this cake around, but I particularly like a lemon variation that adds 1 tablespoon lemon zest and 1 teaspoon lemon oil. Feel free to try experiment with flavoring this cake in various ways. It is an absolutely delicious base cake with a perfect light,... read more

Deb Miller's Vanilla Marshmallow Fondant

By debm1 About This Recipe: This is my recipe for Vanilla Marshmallow Fondant. It's very smooth to work with, drapes beautifully, and tastes somewhat like candy corn. I've been asked for the recipe, so I figured I'd finally write it down and share it. It's color is a perfect match to my homemade butter cream. It is not a bright white...more an ivory. It has more ingredients than many recipes, might take a little longer to make, but it is worth it. Enjoy! ….This recipe makes about 3 lb. 13 oz. fondant. Recipe Doubles well.     Ingredients:   1/3 cup -... read more
