Does anyone have any suggestions on a really good wedding cake recipe. I'm making my daughter's birthday cake & I really just love the flavor of wedding cakes. Also looking for something very moist.
Thanks - Gina

White Almond Sour Cream Cake is good. Alot of top-end wedding cake designers use this recipe. It always tastes better the 3rd day...so make sure you don't cut into it till the 3rd day. icon_smile.gif You can halve the recipe if you don't want that much cake. But really, it's so good perhaps you do want that much cake! icon_lol.gif

I love the chocolate cake recipe from scratch, too. Also I love the Red Velvet Scratch cake recipe (revised) here on CC. Um, let's see. Oh, the Lemon cake...well shucks. You didn't really say what flavor you like!? Any cake can be made into a "wedding" cake. I even have a wedding cake recipe...er...just a really good cake...for a scratch carrot that I received from a CC member. Wow, it's my number 1 fav cake, too. icon_biggrin.gif

So search the recipe sections. Pick one that looks best to you and appeals to what your taste buds are calling!

Wedding cake and birthday cake are the same thing inside. Any recipe you like will do. If there is a particular bakery's cake that you like, you might start by inquiring there (at least for general type).

i love a victoria sponge recipe. but with any cake you can add simple syrup, and that will add extra moistness.

I love the WASC recipe. I make the original and most of the variations. They all taste great, look great and stack great!

Here is the link to the WASC variations and some yummy fillings, some of us CC members came up with in the gourmet flavor thread!

Wedding cake flavors that are unique and not just one flavor (like almond) are probably the result of one of these flavorings:

creme bouquet (my fave)
wedding bouquet
princess emulsion

WASC, or any of its flavor variations. thumbs_up.gif

Here's a thread that has both versions of the basic recipe (with and without oil) and flavor variations....
(Also has popular CC recipes for crusting American b/c's and fondant.)

Everything you need to know to bake, assemble and decorate tiered/stacked/layer cakes:

the simple syrup i use is 1 tablespoon water, 1 tablespoon sugar, heated on the stove, til the sugar dissolves. theres other ways to do it i think though, but that works for me.

I agree. It probably just tastes better at a wedding because youre getting a free meal and drinks LOL!
