I have an anniversary cake that i'm doing in 2 weeks. it's a re-creation of their wedding cake with some modernized updates. their daughters are doing this for them and have given me free reign of flavors. This gives me an opportunity to do some "experimenting" on flavors since the guests are going to be my family. I"m curious as to which flavors are most requested for wedding cakes. so far i've only gotten white, butter, chocolate, carrot and red velvet. I"m going to do vanilla b/c icing so something that goes with that.

the cake is structured like this: (top to bottom) 6" 8" stacked; seperator pillars; then a 10 and 12 stacked.


Thanks!
Aimee

I'm not positive, but I think I read somewhere on here that white almond sour cream was the traditional wedding cake flavor.

Italian cream is a popular flavor.

I love pink champagne cake!!! Although, We've always bought it from a place near Seattle. (McGavins Bakery) I have been trying to duplicate that recipe, my only problem is....I can't remember what it taste like anymore icon_cry.gif

First thing on my list when I go back up is to buy another one of those darn cakes!

http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/MOIST-YELLOW-CAKE-109358

I use Toba's moist yellow cake recipe pretty much for all my cakes...BEST recipe EVER! btw.
I just tweak it to whatever flavor I need...and I ALWAYS add 1 tablespoon of Creme Bouquet....God, I love that thing...!!!

To make pink champagne cake:

*I substitute half of the liquid with Pink Champagne, I don't remember the brand but I got a big bottle from the liqueur store for about $5.00.
*I also added 1oz. of Loraan Champagne oil flavoring (the tiny bottle), I bought them at a farmers market, but you can get them on ebay or on their website.
The oils gives the cake not only a better flavor but a very distinctive champagne smell...
*A TINY bit of red food color to get the pink...just the tip of a toothpick.


To make Pink Champagne BC, I substitute ALL the liquid with Pink C. + some Loann oil +tiny bid of red food color.

I've never made pink champagne cake or heard of it until now...but it sounds delish. I did a quick search on Google and came up with these sites.

This one looks VERY simple and lists the icing to match.

An orange filling goes well with a Pink Champagne cake too...just like a Mimosa! icon_biggrin.gif

alvarezmom Posted 8 Oct 2008 , 5:48pm

Orange BC or another type of orange filling?

dellboi2u Posted 8 Oct 2008 , 5:49pm

The most popular ones for me have been Chocolate and French Vanella.... but after my last cake testing open house, it opened some brides up to some new flavors!!! I introduced a Root Beer Float cake (sounds wierd but is so yummy!) I made up... and a cake that has strawberry fruit filling in one layer, and then I tort the top and bottom layers and do whipping cream in them (so in one 4" thick layer there are 3 fillings) Brides LOVE these flavors!!! The ones that go with fun cakes like a whimsical one usually go crazy over the rootbeer float one!!

tye Posted 8 Oct 2008 , 5:50pm

what other filling would go with pink champagne?? i love this idea but not a lot of people like coconut

ShopGrl1128 Posted 8 Oct 2008 , 5:51pm

Orange curd, or orange BC (flavored with Loann's Oil) or a mix of both.
I'm pretty sure I've seen already made orange curd at the supermarket, in the Peanut butter/ jelly isle.

alvarezmom Posted 8 Oct 2008 , 6:28pm

dellboi2u-your marshmellow guy is fantastic. How did you do him?

cryssi Posted 10 Oct 2008 , 6:12am

I'd imagine that strawberry filling would be nice with a champagne cake...

bejewelled Posted 10 Oct 2008 , 6:48am

Wow pink champagne sounds SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good

Denise Posted 10 Oct 2008 , 7:25am

The two most popular flavors that I make are French Vanilla and Butter Pecan. Half of my weddings are all Butter Pecan!

Swede-cakes Posted 13 Oct 2008 , 12:07am

Oh, my! What does the pink champagne cake taste like? In other words, does it have that little twang on the tastebuds that real champagne has or is it sweeter? Reason I ask is b/c my friend made white champagne jello with raspberries in it for dessert at her dinner party, and I really didn't care for the champagne taste of that.

loriemoms Posted 13 Oct 2008 , 11:49am

Almond with strawberry filling is my most popular. And my double chocolate chocolate chip cake with vanilla mousse comes in second.

Speaking of cakes, I make a mean sweet potato cake and had a request to have it with caramel filling. Does anyone have a recipe for this? It sounds wild.

I also make a fuzzy navel cake: Its orange cake with peach schnaps mousse.

I will have to try the champagne trick! Does it have to be pink champagne? We hate champagne and I have a few bottles of it sitting in our garage people have brought to parties and it never go opened..

mcdonald Posted 13 Oct 2008 , 2:16pm

I've always wanted to try the pink chanpagne cake but didn't want to buy that big bottle of champagne!! I guess I could drink the left overs!!!

apclassicwed Posted 13 Oct 2008 , 11:48pm

Loriesmom---

Would you mind sharing your Sweet Potato cake recipe? I think it will be fantastic at the family Thanksgiving dinner with the Caramel icing below:

Wasn't sure if you wanted a Caramel icing, which is one of my most requested flavors: 1/2 c butter, 1c dark brown sugar--firmly packed; 1/4 c milk; 2c powdered sugar--well sifted
Melt butter over low heat, add brown sugar and milk, bring to a boil--remove from heat and allow to cool; Add powdered sugar and mix until well blended.

My most requested Wedding cake flavors are, Yellow or white, chocolate, Red velvet, Lemon.

I think I will try the Pink Champagne cake for my birthday or Christmas holidays

A:smile:when making a pink champaign cake for the bakery, I use a white sour cream cake with a pink champaign custard filling with whipcream icing. Back in the day( years ago) when I made a pink champaign wedding cake, in place of the liquid, I replaced it with pink champaign . And filled it with champaign custard. It received big raves. :-)
