Hi, I'll be baking my own mini cakes or cupcakes for my own wedding and
would need a really good, tested recipe for both chocolate and vanilla flavors.
I baked some cupcakes/mini cakes last night using Duncan Hines Devils Choc. flavor but came out really soft and fluffy. I used a cup of mayonnaise in place of the oil and added a tbsp. of Hershey's cocoa powder. It was delicious but It's obvious that the cakes can't handle the fondant that I'm thinking of using to cover the mini cakes because of it's too soft/fluffy. I think I need something dense to be able to handle the fondant cover.
Can someone be kind enough to share their choc./vanilla moist recipe that I can use for my mini cakes and the 8" wedding cake? I really would appreciate your help.
The recipe on this website most of us call is WASC (white almond sour cream cake) is a really great recipe. you use a box mix and add other ingredients to it. You can omit the almond flavor for the white cake and theres a choc version as well.The cake comes out dense but moist and alot of decorators can carve with it so it can stand up to fondant no prob.
