I would like to use the WASC recipe for an anniversary cake I'm doing for a dear freind, but she's allergic to almonds. So...I need to sub the almond extract for something else. Any suggestions? Thanks!! icon_smile.gif Also wouldn't mind some filling recommedations. It's an outdoor event and I'll be frosting in bc. icon_biggrin.gif

This is a link to a big list of gourmet flavor combinations. It's the second post from the top. Perhaps one will suit your fancy:

I use vanilla and caramel flavoring in WASC. It's yummy! I've also used strawberry extract and filled it with fresh strawberries and buttercream, also very yummy (=

The pink champagne cake sounds really nice for this occasion. I just don't know about the filling. Anyone have experience w/ this flavor that may have recommendations for filling? Do you think it's a well liked flavor by most people?

I made the pink champagne cake for my daughter's best friend's 21st birthday. I filled it with white chocolate buttercream and fresh sliced stawberries. It was a huge hit! And it smells wonderful while it's baking!

That sounds lovely! Did you place the strawberries on top of the filling and then the next layer of cake on top of that?

I used the pink champagne WASC recipe form the gourmet flavors list. Basically the original WASC with a white mix and then added Loran's champagne flavoring and a bit of Wilton Rose gel color. I can't remember which buttercream recipe I used but it was out of the recipe section here and probably had a good rating, LOL!! I tend to try the ones with more stars first. I made a 8" two layer cake, White chocolate buttercream filling with strawberies layered on top of the filling, then iced the whole thing with the buttercream. It was so good!! I only used 2 drams of the flavoring, next time I would use 3, just to kick it up a notch!!

Thank you!! That sounds delicious! I hadn't even thought of the Lorann flavors. I think a trip to my cake store is an order. She sells them for $1.50 icon_smile.gif

Ok, I am dumb when it comes to links and whatnot, but that is the address of the recipe for the buttercream. I got my Loran's from a local cake decorating store. I love them and they are fun to experiment with. Enjoy!!
