I am in the process of trying MacsMom Red Velvet Cake, WASC version. I have added:
2 boxes white cake mix
1 box of dark chocolate cake mix
2 pkg choc pudding
2-3/4 c flour
1/4 c cocoa powder
3 c sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
3 c sour cream
8 whole eggs
1/3 c oil
2 TBS vanilla

As I am writing this the mixture is sitting on my counter to thick to stir. There has got to be some wet ingrediant I am missing. Please help.

Thank you for the reply. I was missing the coffee creamer. You saved my cake.

Awesome! You're gonna love it. And don't worry about it sitting for a while before it makes it into the oven, I think the texture actauly improves when it sits!

Here is link to several variations of WASC we've been playing with:

...and how it all got started

I'll have to try this..
I usually use the regular wasc recipe and just sub red velvet mix's for the white and use all vanilla extract instead of the almond.. works perfectly.

Are these suppose to be the same recipe? The 2nd one has sugar, water, creamer, red food coloring, and salt and the first one doesn't. It also has different amounts of ingredients then the 1st.

MacsMom - that first link you posted is absolutely AMAZING! I have several customers who love the WASC (over a scratch cake) and my family prefers WASC as well. This is an extraordinary list!

Thanks a bunch for posting it!!

The second one is the correct recipe. To make a smaller batch, use 1 white mix, then measure out the dark chocolate mix to use half of it... and then use half of everything else icon_rolleyes.gif

Is anyone else having trouble finding the BC dark chocolate? I have found chocolate, double chocolate, german chocolate, etc...but no dark chocolate...I haven't been able to try the recipe yet because of that. Can I substitute just regular chocolate cake mix instead?

The Wilton (1oz) jars red-red...are they the regular wilton gel/paste colors that you find at Michaels??

I know, it is hard to find. The only place I've found it in CA is Vons and Pak-n-Save.

Use devils food cake and, if you can find it, Hershey's special dark cocoa powder.

Oh! Sorry. Instead of 3 cups flour you would use 2 2/3 c flour and 1/3 c cocoa.

It's my favorite RV. It's good for carving topsys, but I add 6 to 8 oz melted chocolate to any cake that needs more intricate carving like a car or animal. (For the RV I'd add white chocolate).

I was searching high and low for a great tasting cake that was also carve-able, and the WASC fit the bill perfectly.

Thank yu MacsMom and sorry to ask stupid questions....using two jars would not turn the cake bitter?
I found red food coloring at my grocery store...it's a 1oz jar and it's by McMormicks so, do I also add 2 of these?
Ok, thank you very much!!

McCormick's isn't as intense as red-red. I even prefer the red-red to Americolor's super red. But it doesn't have to be such a deep red, so the McCormick's should suffice icon_wink.gif .
