hey everyone.. i am sure this question has been asked before but i can't seem to find an answer.. is anyone able to give me a great tasting white cake (preferably) or chocolate cake recipe that holds fondant really well? the recipe i've been using tastes good but i just cant get it to look smooth the entire night.. nobody notices but me, but it annoys me haha. anyways, i have to bake the cake today so if anyone has a really good recipe they use for a cake that will be covered in fondant, it would be greatly appreciated!
thanks in advance
I would recommend WASC - White Almond Sour Cream if you want a cake mix based cake. It's in the recipe section and dense enough to hold up fondant. If you don't want the almond flavour, just add more vanilla instead, which is what I do.
Although, I've used straight cake mixes and they work fine. HTH
hey thanks for your reply! i made a similar cake i think? i found a recipe on here and it called for the following:
1 box cake mix
1/2 cup water
4 egg whites
1 cup sour cream
1 package of vanilla pudding mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
its baking in the oven right now.. do you think it will hold up?
Some people use straight box mix with no problems. I suggest you try the original WASC recipe by kakeladi. I think your recipe would hold up.
