1st - this site is amazing I found it about a month ago & am addicted!
I'm doing a baby shower cake in a couple weeks and have been asked to do strawberry layers and chocolate layers. I found the 2 recipes above and like them but I don't know how to modify them to get the flavors I need. Any suggestions? Thanks for the advise in advance!
Hi and Welcome to CC, kim2733.
Link to CC acronyms:
The WASC cake and its variations are very popular on CC. The recipe has the reliability of a cake mix but with a more homemade taste.
Here's the expanded flavors recipe:
Using DH white cakes mixes, the full recipe yields a tad over 14 cups of batter which is great for larger pans or multiple smaller ones.
If you're making a sheet cake, the above recipe will yield enough batter for two 13x9x2 layers or one 12x18x2 layer.
To make a WASC cake into a strawberry cake, just use strawberry extract in place of almond and vanilla. (Other options are also given in the above link.)
Another recipe I really like is from blakescakes:
(However, it doesn't make as much as the WASC cake recipe.)
(This recipe uses buttermilk, and pudding mix.)
Look forward to seeing pics of your shower cake!
Thank you very much for the suggestions & links!!! I can't wait to get to them and start baking. I will post pics when I'm done. You guys rock!
