I don't need something dense enough to stack. How can I lighten it up a bit?

Stacking has nothing to do with what type of cake you use. It doesn't have to be a "dense" cake for stacking. I've stacked angel food cake before. Cake doesn't support cake your support system supports cake. People make dense cakes more for sculpted cakes NOT because they stack them.

That said...I use kakeladi's "original" WASC recipe. It doesn't have pudding in it like some of the others do and it's my most requested cake. thumbs_up.gif

I think we sometimes say "stacked" when we mean "carved". You do need a dense cake for carving, but not necessarily for stacking.

Try SeriousCakes' scratch version. I've made it twice this week using 5 egg whites instead of 4 whole eggs and made sure to cream the shortening and sugar for at least 10 minutes on medium. The scraps don't seem nearly as dense as the box version.

Yes, I mis-spoke. I intended to say carved.
