Classic white pound cake...tones of lemon and almond.

Plain ole' SMBC.

My fave as well. I could easily eat a 6" round of that all by myself.

And I didn't misspell "tons", I meant that the flavor of the cake has hints (tones) of lemon and almond. icon_wink.gif

vanilla pound cake with vanilla buttercream is always popular.

I sell a lot of coconut cake with pineapple filling for summer weddings.

It's really a simple thing to do. I'm a box mix caker so I start with a strawberry cake mix (I use DH), and substitute margarita mix for half of the water amount. I'll also grate in some lime zest for color. It's a big hit, and it's something I learned from my mother.

A toss up between French Vanilla or Chocolate fudge with WBH Buttercream icing.

I'd like to see the margarita cake recipe as well! My best cake is butter pecan cake with a caramel cream cheese filling.

KKC Posted 29 Apr 2009 , 5:52pm

Banana Cake with Cream cheese frosting or Devil's Food Cake with Milk chocolate whipped buttercream!

I dont't have customers yet but my friends and family usually rave about the WASC with blueberry filling and my decadent chocolate with dark chocolate ganache (my personal fave).

Thanks for sharing I will have to try that out! thumbs_up.gif
What do you use to fill & /or frost it?

Misdawn Posted 29 Apr 2009 , 5:59pm

Hey thanks aggie! I missthe area down around where you are! I went to college at A&M!

aggiechef Posted 29 Apr 2009 , 6:02pm

jovigirl - I usually use just plain buttercream (I'm a fan of the Wilton buttercream) with a little lime juice added in. I try not to play with the flavor in the buttercream because I don't want it to distract from the cake.

Misdawn - I went to the Galveston campus and I loved it. icon_smile.gif

Red velvet cake with cream cheese filling and icing Yummy

grammynan Posted 29 Apr 2009 , 7:33pm

My clients love Duncan Hines yellow cake with Wilton recipe buttercream!!!
How easy is that?!!

TC123 Posted 29 Apr 2009 , 7:38pm

Vanilla Bean White with SMBC.

(aggiechef, oooooh! What a neat way to use a cake mix!)

aggiechef Posted 29 Apr 2009 , 7:41pm

Just as an FYI (along the same lines as the margarita mix) - I've used pina colada mix in a white cake before as well. It gives a nice flavor for those who don't like the texture of coconut but like the flavor. I actually don't get many requests for this, but I've done it a couple of times.

sugardoo Posted 29 Apr 2009 , 7:52pm

I am looking for this icing my grandmother use to make. When you would cut the cake the icing would make a crackling noise . It was hard & sugary. I remember going to the church fairs & hearing that sound when they would cut you a piece of cake. She would beat her egg whites until she would turn her plate upside down & the egg whites would stick to the plate& not fall out. I do not know what she would put in the egg white. She would not cook the ingredients. Any one who would know any information please let me know. Thank you.

I tried a white DH cake mix with a can of Bacardis mix (undiluted). My cake didn't not rise in the middle. So, I did it again...lol still flat in the middle.
Anyone who has tried this recipe know why????
