I have a bride that wants a spice cake (very light spice flavor).I got a recipe from the recipe section for a extended spice cake. The bride said it had to strong of a spice flavor. She wants it very lite flavor. So I was wondering if I could do the spice cake and mix with a white cake mix to just add a little spice flavor. Has anyone ever done that or should I keep looking for a good lite spice cake? Any ideas? Thanks for your help

I would just use a lighter spice recipe. Unless she wants the cake marbled with another flavor.

I would not recommend mixing a spice cake with a white cake, as the white cake uses only whites, and has a different density than a regular cake mix. By the time you blend the two thoroughly, you may end up over-mixing it.

I would blend it with a basic yellow cake mix. Sift the two powders together twice, before adding to the liquid.

Oh yes, I've done that many timesicon_smile.gif There is no problem.
If you don't feel you want to do thst, then use yellow cake mix & add 1/2 the spices you would for a scratch recipe.

Hi. I would suggest trying to find a lighter spice cake recipe. If you used the Spice Cake Extender recipe from the Recipe section, I see that it has added spices (2 tsp pumpkin pie spice and 2 packs apple cider mix), so that may have been what made it too spicy for the Bride. Good luck! icon_smile.gif

Pumpkin pie spice works well. About 1/2 teaspoon should make a nice, light spice flavoring.

Oh thanks for all the replies, I think I will play with different ones this weekend. I will try the yellow first without extra spices, see how that goes. Then maybe the pumpkin pie spice. I knew someone would have a idea.
