Did you use the recipe on CC that calls for 2 cake mixes, flour, sugar etc? I've been meaning to try this one. What kind of frosting are you going to use?????

Gets even better with the raspberry filling! thumbs_up.gif I love it with a whipped cream/raspberry filling--to die for! I just got a recipe from Tastefully Simple for a raspberry mousse that I am dying to try with it. The recipe is just 12 oz. of coolwhip, 8 oz. of softened cream cheese and the Tastefully simple Raspberry Divine sauce (how ever much you want to add) and just whip it all together. It is soooooo yummy it would make a perfect filling!

And just where did you find this amazing recipe for this mouth watering cupcake?? icon_smile.gif

Missy,,, I have never seen the sauce before. Is it in the cold food section?

ccwkg, Tastefully Simple products are sold through reps and home parties (like Mary Kay). You can often find their products on eBay, though.

Thanks for the info Beckalita. No wonder I had never heard of it before. Sounds like something worth looking into though!

Cynda Posted 13 Jan 2007 , 11:32pm

ps3884 Posted 13 Jan 2007 , 11:40pm

I want the recipe too!!! Another CC'er raved about it in a different post. Is it in CC's recipe file?

joby1 Posted 13 Jan 2007 , 11:47pm

I just made it for the first time today and just used half the recipe. I could not stop eating it either....

joby1 Posted 13 Jan 2007 , 11:48pm

I meant to add: here is the link to the recipe...oops

karenm0712 Posted 14 Jan 2007 , 12:28am

Here is the recipe that I used. I think that I was "googling" and found this but I am sure that the same recipe is on CC as well. icon_smile.gif

White Almond Wedding Cake
(also known as White Almond Sour Cream Cake)

2 (18 ounce) boxes white cake mix
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 2/3 cups water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons real vanilla
2 teaspoons almond extract
2 cups sour cream
8 large egg whites, room temperature

1. Place all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir together with a wire whisk.
2. Add the remaining ingredients and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
3. Pour into greased and floured cake pans, filling each pan about half full.
4. Lightly tap cake pans on counter to bring air bubbles to top.
5. Cut through batter with a toothpick or tip of a knife to break large bubbles.
6. Bake in preheated 325° F oven until cake tests done.
7. Baking time varies according to the size and depth of pans being used.
8. I used Wilton's Bake Even Strips on my cake pans to ensure a level-topped cake which required absolutely no trimming-- I highly recommend these.
9. This recipe makes: One 14" round and one 6" round or One 16" round or One 12" round and one 10" round or One 12 X 18" sheet cake or One 12" round and one 8" round and one 6" round Two 9" squares.
10. Half the recipe makes: Two 8" rounds or Two 6" rounds and 6 cupcakes.
11. These cake size yeilds are approximate, and can vary widely according to the depth of the pans being used.
12. As a general rule, fill your pans about half-full of batter or use the number of cups of batter specified by the cake pan manufacturer.
13. For chocolate cake: use chocolate mixes and substitute 6 whole eggs for the egg whites.

can NOT wait to try it!! NOw what's a good recipe for raspberry filling?? thanks icon_biggrin.gif

Tug Posted 14 Jan 2007 , 1:19am

Do you HAVE to use a white cake mix or can you use a yellow cake mix? Or even the DH butter cake mix?

mconrey Posted 14 Jan 2007 , 1:29am

This recipe is FANTASTIC with raspberry filling! It's my favorite.

I have not tried it with yellow cake, but I'm sure you could. The chocolate variation calls for 6 whole eggs instead of 8 egg whites - you could probably do the same thing with the yellow cake.

georgies_girl Posted 14 Jan 2007 , 5:50am

Try it with lemon curd filling and a lemon buttercream......it's verrrrrrry good!!

swillshaz Posted 14 Jan 2007 , 10:23am

errr... can someone tell me what is white cake mix and yellow cake mix? I dont think I have seen it on the shelves here... and what can I use to substitute. The recipe sure sounds fab.

mommabear Posted 15 Jan 2007 , 4:29am

OMG you mean theres a chocolate version?? I LOVE this cake. Your house smells amazing when your making it and suddenly everyone comes out of the woodwork looking to catch a piece straight out of the oven. icon_lol.gif

StephW Posted 15 Jan 2007 , 4:41am

I have made this cake twice now - first time with chocolate cream cheese icing and filling. Yesterday with strawberry filling and whipped icing. Both times it was just delicious!! The cake comes out sooo moist. I'll definitely have to try the chocolate version - maybe with a cherry filling... hmmmmm

I believe that the reference is to the box cake mixes such as Duncan Hines or Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, etc. Where are you from?

STX44703 Posted 15 Jan 2007 , 4:29pm

ohhh that sounds soo good! Think I have to try it tonight!!

bobwonderbuns Posted 15 Jan 2007 , 4:37pm

This recipe is FANTASTIC!! Everyone raves about it (making me look like a true cake hero!) icon_wink.gif I tweak it a tad more, but I like the variations I've heard here. Also, I did notice that when I bake it in Wilton pans, it browns considerably more, but when I bake it in MagicLine pans it gets a very light golden color rather than brown.

msmith Posted 15 Jan 2007 , 4:53pm

This is the cake recipe I use for my cakes. It is wonderful. I add a little apple pie spice to the chocolate recipe. It makes it a very unique cake. Wonderful with buttercream or whipped icing.

NoviceBaker2 Posted 15 Jan 2007 , 5:10pm

Sounds wonderful my grandfather's 80th birthday is next Tuesday and I was looking for a fabulous recipe for his special day. Thanks!! icon_biggrin.gif

bobwonderbuns Posted 15 Jan 2007 , 5:16pm

I'm wondering what variations of this cake y'all have done -- I've heard using a yellow box mix with whole eggs (how many?) What other variations are there?

bonnscakesAZ Posted 15 Jan 2007 , 5:28pm

I use this also.. all variations are good. I have done it with all kinds of mixes also. There is a lemon variation and a strawberry one that I know of.. I am sure there is more I am not thinking of. Love it!
