I bought this book and love it! I am doing my 2 tier "wedding" cake for Wilton course 3 next week and was wondering what recipes you like in that book for stacking?
I made the Darn Good Chocolate Cake for my sister's bday and it turned out perfect and was so easy to ice and stayed together great!
I did the Fresh Orange cake the following week and it was so super moist that it was hard to work with.
What do you like out of that book for stacking/filling
I like the basic sour cream cakes from the book. white sour cream, yellow sour cream. they are durable. i also use the devil's food buttermilk cake all the time and love it. gotten rave reviews on it. its cheaper to make than the chocolate cake you mentioned because you don't have to buy choc chips which are expensive.
I'm with TMT and, too, love the sour cream white cake recipe. I've also used the pound cake recipes and loved them. Darn Good Chocolate is wonderful, chocolate cupcake recipe is great, the strawberry cake is yummy, and my mom has been making the Rum Cake recipe since it first arrived on the scene in the seventies. It's a great book for relocating some of the long lost recipes like friendship cake, etc. as well!
i have made the ice cream cake a couple times - always great and easy to swap up flavors
Love the book, too. I made the strawberry cake last week, and I'm not sure that would be a great choice for stacking...very moist, (but in a delicious way!) Like the others have said, the chocolates are pretty dense yet still moist, as are the pound cakes. hth!
I'd agree with Sweetjan regarding the strawberry cake... the first one I mentioned were my favs for stacking, the strawberry cake is moist, and fine as a single cake, but would not do well as a tiered cake. I should have clarified that in my original post.
The buttermilk spice cake recipe is a good one too, especially with cream cheese icing
