Well, I may not be the best person to ask, but I wanted to give you a bump up.

I had to do a wedding for a friend recently and thanks to my crappy apartment oven was having a heck of a time with my regular white cake. I gave in and did the WASC (I am usually just scratch--not that I have anything against the box! icon_smile.gif ) and it worked like a dream!

I had no issues with drying out at all, and some of my layers sat out for up to 12 hours waiting to be iced. None ended up dry and it was really good!

If you don't get responses, do some searching for threads about WASC and see if others have good tips or opinions.

Good luck!

Thank you for responding I'm getting ready to make the chocolate recipe I sent the other cake with hubby to work he said everyone loved it I was just wondering if anyone had problems with it sitting out and drying

I know this may be a late response, but I've made this cake several times and not always frosted it. It has never dried out and when I take it into work for them to eat, it is usually left uncovered as the employees eat it by the spoonfulls or cut pieces as they walk by it!

Let us know how the chocolate version is. I've never made that one.

I LOVE WASC! In fact, it's the only recipe I use now icon_smile.gif And I use it with any cake flavor, I just change the extracts. I've never had an issue with it being dry. I do add a box of pudding to the mix now (thanks to some helpful people here on CC!) and it stays nice and moist for a long time. I usually have leftover cupcakes, uniced, that sit on our counter for a week or so (in a covered bowl) and we eat them throughout the week. Can't tell a difference in the ones we eat toward the end of the week. YUM-E! icon_biggrin.gif

I too have never had this cake dry out and I have had one sit on the counter all day. The chocolate version is substituting a chocolate box mix (I use a milk chocolate mix) and using 6 whole eggs instead of the 8 whites. As posted by other CC members I also substitute 1/2 cup cocoa for 1/2 cup of the flour as the boxes don't seem to be chocolatey enough. I have also read some add a little coffee to enhance the chocolate flavor also.

Thank you all for the input. Winter I have a recipe that says to add 2/3 cup of coco instead of all the flour and coffee in place of the liquid and omit the almond it sounds yummy.

Hi Tootall,

Did I read correctly, do you add pudding to your WASC mix? Does that help the cake be even that more moist? Let me know.

Thanks!

I'd like to know about the pudding as well.
I love putting pudding in cakes.

What flavor of pudding do you use, and how does it change the baking time?
