I've tried it in a large sheet cake and cupcakes. I thought it was pretty good but, I did hear a little boy say he thought it tasted like play dough. I'm not sure if I take that as a good thing or not. The cupcakes I've tried with vanilla bc that had a bunch of mini chocolate chips. They looked cool and tasted pretty good. Maybe someone else can give their opinion to...

well.... I made it and did not like it. It tasted weird...will not be doing it again. Maybe that is why the lil boy said it tasted like playdough because it has a sweet but weird taste to it.

I thought it was just me, but I wasn't a big fan of it either.
It sounds like it should be a winner, but maybe not.
I did use milk chocolate chips in my batter, don't know if that made a difference.

Maybe he meant cookie dough not play dough? I haven't tried it yet but would think semi or bitter sweet chips would help cut the sweetness

dandelion, maybe that little boy did mean cookie dough. That would make sense. Especially when that is what it is suppose to taste like. icon_lol.gif That would make me feel better anyway. icon_wink.gif

I haven't done this with WASC, but I have made chocolate chip cakes before. I would recommend using all vanilla or vanilla and butter, and NOT almond, because almond extract and chocolate chips can do weird things together. I use the Nestle mini-morsels...my local cake store has another brand of mini-morsels I want to try next time. But the minis work out a LOT better than the full-sized things. Full-sized chocolate chips just wind up tasting awkward in a cake, I've found.

White chocolate chip cake is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE kind of cake, yum yum!

Sounds Yummy. This is the recipe I used: perhaps I did something wrong?I mean It wasn't terrible but I would not make it again.

Chocolate Chip Cookie WASC - HeatherC
2 boxes yellow cake mix
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups packed dark brown sugar
1 1/2 teas. salt
6 eggs
2 2/3 cups water
4 Tbls. vegetable oil
2 cups (16oz carton) sour cream
4 teaspoons vanilla (or maybe a little rum or butterscotch for part of it?)
3 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips

It's actually a lot better if you use white cake mixes and regular sugar. You some up with a cake that's a little more...delicate a flavor, so the chips can create more of a contrast. Up to you whether or not you want to use the whole egg or egg whites; I've done both. You might back off just a little on the vanilla, too--possibly 3 teaspoons instead of 4. I don't know about the rum or butterscotch; I ADORE vanilla, so I don't usually bother with anything else in a white cake.

I made a chocolate chip WASC and it tasted amazing. I used mint extract, so maybe that spared me the overly sweet cake some have mentioned.

Thanks for your tips, perhaps I will try that next time icon_smile.gif
