white almond sour cream cake. It's in the recipes section on here. icon_smile.gif

I don't like almond, so it took me forever to take the plunge and try it, but once I did... I'll never go back to mixes. icon_razz.gif

Give it a shot! You'll get hooked. icon_twisted.gif

PS Don't be embarrassed... we all started out not knowing about that... icon_smile.gif Never be afraid to ask, if you don't know. We're all thrilled to share. icon_smile.gif

Does anyone know a recipe from scratch for the WASC cake?

Here is the link to the *original* recipe that I posted years ago.

http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopic-584319-30-days0-orderasc-.html
Hope that link works. I'm not real sure how to put links in.

Since I'm traveling I suggest someone who bakes from scratch experiment as I have never seen a scratch recipe.
I would think the liquid in any white cake can be replaced w/sc; the flavoring to be almond (Or a conbination of vanilla, butter & almond).

You know what, ask JanH. She had a link to one of the WASC recipes on some recipe site that I believe was made from scratch. Of course I could be mistaken on that, but it seems to me... icon_rolleyes.gif I used to have the thread but I'm not locating it at the moment.

I make lots of variations of this recipe. Chocolate kahlua, french vanilla-almond, lemon with raspberry preserves. The list goes on and on. It's wonderful. kakeladi thank you for coming up with this recipe!

I posted this question on a new thread, but haven't gotten an answer yet. Can anyone here help me?

I have to make a double batch of chocolate version WASC and realized it would call for 16 egg whites. Can I use whole eggs instead w/o compromising the texture or structure of the cake too much? How many whole eggs would I use? Has anyone ever tried this?

I really need ot get these cakes in the oven tonight. Please help!!???

Yes! Use 6 xlarge or 8 large whole eggs. You do not need to use the whites only for the Chocolate version. Also, I use whole eggs for the White version too unless someone tells me specifically NOT to use the yolks.

Good Luck!

Substitute a chocolate cake mix for the white one. Hmmm, add maybe peppermint flavor. I could see almond, vanilla, orange or lemon flavorings being good in this cake too. I never follow the directions on the flavorings, I use what I think would be good for what I am making.

Good to see that I wasn't the only one that tried the WASC recipe this weekend. I made a cake for my Mom and sister for Mother's Day. OMG, I am on a diet (and you all know Jenny Craig is expensive), but I CAN'T STOP eating the darn cake. Thank God everyone loved the cake and I get weighed in on Sundays, so I have 6 more days to get it out of my system.

The cream bouquet is a good flavor to add too.

Okay. note to self and everyone else:

2 batches of WASC DOES NOT FIT IN A 6 QT KA!!!!! LOL icon_lol.gificon_razz.gif
I should have taken a pic of the mess I had! I ended up having to transfer it to my stock pot and mix by hand! icon_lol.gif My dh and I were dying! Total "duh" moment for me!

I've read on CC that you can add fizzy drinks in place of the water like Dr Pepper, Sprite ect I think this sounds great but was wondering if you had to de-carbonate the drinks first?? icon_confused.gif I mean if you had a can of Dr pepper would you put it in a container and shake it to get the fizz out or can you just throw it in as is?!

Also the variation links says you can sub 1 cup water for alcohol, so does that mean I could put 1 cup of flavoured vodka in it? (I'm thinking Cranberry Vodka, Yum! icon_biggrin.gif )

OMG... those variations sound delish! I am so glad I tried this cake... now I cant wait to try all the flavors. The peppermint in the chocolate WASC sounds interesting... good idea!

Thanks all!!!

I've said this a thousand times, but I love the kakeladi's version since it's a smaller version and you can use the whole eggs thus no waste! But instead of the almond, I used syrups (in my last cake) Kiwi; strawberry; mango; and orange. They all were fantastic in this cake!!

DaisyLisa17 Posted 13 May 2008 , 2:31am
post #29 of 49

Ok, here comes the newbie in me again....

But, what kind of syrups are you using? Is there a certain brand to look for?

vickymacd Posted 13 May 2008 , 11:14am

On this forum they have been talking about Torani syrups, I used the syrups that restaurants put in your flavored lemonades, but in your grocery store they have different coffee syrups such as raspberry, hazelnut, etc. If you look, they have different flavors from the sweet to Kahlua type. I find that you have to use more than if you were using an emulsion or extract. And if you want the 'color' of the cake to match the flavor, you need to add coloring as the flavorings don't produce a strong color, just a hint of color.
Hope this helps.
Oh, and you can google Torani syrups to see the different flavorings, but there are many other brands on the market.
