I'm crazy about the wasc cake, but my daughter wants a chocolate cake for her sweet 16 in a week. She wants a 3 tier crooked cake (I'm excited to be trying my first one thumbs_up.gif ) so it needs to be a dense, sturdy cake. A tweaked mix would be great. Can anyone recommend a good recipe? There are so many..........TIA! icon_smile.gif

I made the Darn Good Chocolate Cake in the recipe section and took it to work today. There was not a piece left and I got a cake order out of it, so it must have been good!

Dana8,

wasc stands for white almond sour cream cake. You can find it in the recipe section. I have yet to try it but it gets rave reviews on here!

I use the Barefoot Contessa's "Beatty's Chocolate cake recipe. IT is so moist and tasty.

I like the Epicurious double Chocolate cake (very chocolaty) and also the Hershey's chocolate cake that is in the back of the Hershey's cocoa box (very moist).

I have made the Hershey's chocolate cake and icing that is on the cocoa box and it turns out great also.

I use a version of an extender recipe found here on CC. I tweak it a bit. The recipe here calls for:

1 box mix, 1 c. flour, 1 c. sugar, 3 eggs, 1 - 1/3 c. water, 1 c. sour cream or yogurt, and 1 stick butter

Well, I decided one day I'd try it. The only problem was I was out of sour cream so I put cream cheese in it. It turned out really moist and dense. It has become a favorite of my customers. Today I was making a b-day cake for my BIL, who by the way was the first to try the cream cheese version. I didn't have enough cream cheese so I added the sour cream and instead of water, I added butter milk (well, actually powdered buttermilk and water) instead of just water. I tasted the extra after leveling and it was divine!
