I have been saying that I can't find a good scratch white cake, I think I finally found it. Its the shubox bakery white coconut cake. It turned out so good, light and fluffy, and great flavor, I was impressed. The only problem I wondered is it too fluffy for a wedding cake. Has anyone used it for a wedding cake, it seems a little soft, was wondering how it stacks. but I loved the flavor. I had never done the method of adding the eggs seperately and whipping the egg whites, it made all of the difference.
Saw the posts talking about this cake and so I tried it today, very good.

If you are dowelled correctly, the lightnes of the cake shouldn't matter, as you are resting the upper tiers on the supports, not the layer below it. HTH. icon_smile.gif

Ditto what crisseyann said about supporting the cake layers. thumbs_up.gif

Here's an Everything you ever wanted to know to make, decorate and assemble tiered/stacked/layer cakes thread:
