I've a request for a white chocolate wedding cake - anyone have a great recipe to recommend that would be fine for wedding cake? It'll be 6in, 8in, 10in squares stacked.

TIA!

I don't have a recipe, but I've seen several versions of a white cake with either white chocolate pudding or melted white chocolate in the batter. Hope that gives you a starting point! icon_biggrin.gif

If you're using the "traditional" WACS (white almond sourcream), here's the addition you would make...
For white chocolate: melt 8oz white baking chocolate & cool slightly. use 6 whole eggs in the recipe instead of the whites, temper the chocolate by stirring in a small amount of the batter, then add the white chocolate to the entire batter and stir well. Doesn't bake up quite as high as the original, so add a pinch more batter to the pans.

I found this at grouprecipes.com http://www.grouprecipes.com/58702/white-almond-sour-cream-wedding-cake.html

Anna Olson (from Food Network) just aired a show where she made a friends wedding cake that was white chocolate berry w/ white chocolate buttercream...I'm sure you could omit the berries b/c they're part if the filling. Here's the link:

I just made this cake. It's taste good but it's extremely dense. I was wanting something a little more "fluffy".

I've really liked Rose Levy Beranbaum's White Chocolate Whisper cake (http://www.yumyum.com/recipe.htm?ID=5744 )
I've found it to be light, and she says the cocoa butter makes it firmer easy to cut though still melts in the mouth.

Thanks! I'll give it a try.
