I'm new to all of this and I kept hearing about WASC cake so I figured I'd give it a try. I used the recipe on here that is called the Original WASC recipe. I used a yellow DH box mix for the base and added all the other ingredients according to the recipe. The recipe called for 1 tbsp of flavoring so I used 1/2 almond and 1/2 vanilla. The cake baked beautifully and smelled wonderful. It had the perfect amount of moisture and a good crumb. My husband said it tasted like there was an alcohol aftertaste though. Tasted like wedding cake to me. Anyway, should I cut back the amount of flavor from 1 tbsp? or should I not mix the 2 flavors? Any advice would be welcome!

That is the amount I use, and the flavors I use too, and it is my biggest selling cake flavor. It may just be him that tastes the alcohol??

Could your flavorings be bad? WASC is very popular with my clients and I have never heard that complaint

Some of the people I work with just don't like anything with almond extract - so I don't use it.

brand new flavorings but it could be the almond flavor that he just wasn't used to. I had never baked with almond before. So, do all of you use a complete Tbsp of a single flavor or do you have any suggestions for combos?

Yep, I'd bet it was the almond. I never use it, we don't like it. I use either just vanilla or with a tiny bit of butter flavor.

Almond is strong. I literally use just a couple of drops, and the rest is vanilla and butter flavoring.
