I haven't made a pound cake in a long time - but could you put a moistening syrup on it? That's what I do with all the rest of cakes.

how about the WASC (white almond sour cream) cake in the recipe section. it's very moist and delicious.

Use WASC. It is close enough to poundcake. You might want to up the butter flavor. That and the density will give a good poundcake flavor with the reliability you need for the wedding cake.

eggs with the yolks instead of just whites and butter flavor instead of almond or vanilla. i agree with matthewkyrankelly that the density is very similar to pound cake, i don't think anyone would know the difference

I agree, I think wasc with butter flavor would be fine. I have noticed when I don't use cake flour it seems to have a heavier feel to it but it is soooo good it is the only cake I want to bake now so I can have the scraps. icon_redface.gif

I have a great thumbs_up.gif pound cake recipe, I'll post it tonight when I get home from work. It's called Whipping Cream Pound Cake so you can find it. Everyone LOVES it and it is moist but not so much where it falls apart.

Thank You Guys!! I am going to be making some taste cakes this weekend and see which one I will use.

oh I had another question it is a 3 tier cake she wants the bottom and top layer pound cake and the middle cake wasc cake do you think that there would be enough of a difference if I used the wasc with the butter and yolk on the other layers (pound cake) or do you think it will all taste the same

I think it will taste different. But you will definitely be able to tell a difference in the texture.
