Hi everyone,

I have a question.....can you use chocolate cake mix with the WASC recipe? I wasn't sure how it would turn out, I have a birthday cake due Sunday and the little girl wants a chocolate cake. I tried making one from scratch but it wasn't quite dense enough for the unicorn I have to make....any suggestions?

Thank you!
Stacy

Yes you can use chocolate cake mixes. I do it all the time. The only thing I change is the eggs. I use 6 whole eggs instead 8 egg whites.

The double chocolate layer cake from Epicurious is dense, in my opinion. If you freeze it, it will carve just fine icon_smile.gif

But like the poster above stated, you can use wasc. I would sub. some cocoa for the flour though.

Here's the version I use:

1 box of chocolate cake mix [Pillsbury's - the one that contains 1 cup of pudding in the mix]
1/3 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cups cocoa [Hershey's unsweetened]
1 cup sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1-1/3 cups coffee [microwave 1-1/3 cups of water for 50 seconds and add 1-1/4 tsp. of instant coffee to it & let cool]
2 Tb. vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sour cream
3 lg. eggs

Place all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir with a whisk. Add the remaining ingredients and mix for 2 minutes. Pour into greased and floured pans [I use butter and a parchment circle], filling each a little over half full. Bake in a pre-heated 325 deg. oven till it tests done [Mine takes 50 minutes].

My *original* WASC recipe can be used with *any* flavor cake mix!
It's posted in the recipe section. Just search in the recipe section using: *original* icon_smile.gif

I do the same thing. Kakeladi's original is awesome!!! I have done many different flavors with sturdy but moist cakes always.

I have used cakepros chocolate variation on WASC here's the link http://cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-7367-0-AMAZING-Chocolate-WASC-Cake.html

i've used it for my own wedding cake (my mom and i made it) and received SOOO many compliments and also on birthday cakes. i used strong coffee instead of water and instant coffee (and like other posters on other threads have said you can't taste the coffee it just helps the chocolate) and i have done it with different brands of cake mix and they all work well/taste good

Kakeladi's WASC is the most awesomest thing on Earth icon_wink.gif ... I swear by it, and yes, I've substituted all sorts of flavors in it. Macsmom has a great version of the WASC ... look up the "Help! Gourmet flavors" thread and you'll find all sorts of nice variations. HTH!

Macsmom has all her recipes posted on her signature line in her posts. She has tonnes of WASC variation recipes!

They all look so good. I've tried 3 different flavors of WASC from her recipes, and I gotta say, she really knows what makes a flavorful, moist cake!!

TRY THE CHOCOLATE TRUFFLE FILLING!!! you won't regret it!!

I saw that amazing list and didn't know where to start, but I need a little variety in my cakes.
