my aunt wants me to make a yellow sheet cake for her superbowl party this weekend. first time doing a yellow cake (i know...i'm a rookie lol) i'm going to try the yellow wasc...hope it turns out well
anyhow, i plan to decorate it with mmf. i normally cover them in buttercream but never had a yellow cake with buttercream...it's usually chocolate. anyone but me think this would be too sweet? any other suggestions on a good icing with yellow cake that won't show under my fondant?
Buttercream works well with any flavor. Yellow cake isn't any more sweet than white/vanilla (in my opinion anyway). You can use a pudding type fillling and just ice the cake in BC and cover in fondant.
also, for the yellow wasc variation would i just change the mix to yellow, use 6 whole eggs and 4 tbs of vanilla?
how many mixes are you using? the full wasc 2 or the half 1 box?
How many cake mixes are you using? With regular cake mixes, I use one the following base recipe
1 box of cake mix
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1 cup sour cream
4 large eggs
1/3 c vegetable oil
Pinch of salt
1 1/3 cup water
1 tbsp flavoring ( whatever matches the cake, so in your case, vanilla)
I hope it works out great for you!
here are the 2 basic versions that people might use they are listed on the google doc with the other wasc flavors
*original* WASC- kakeladi version w/ whole eggs
1 box cake mix
1 cup flour*
1 cup granulated sugar
generous dash of salt
1 cup sour cream*
1 cup water *
3 whole eggs
1 tablespoon flavoring*
this one will make more of course becuase there are 2 mixes
WASC - Rebecca Sutterby version w/ egg whites
2 boxes white cake mix
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teas. salt
8 egg whites
2 2/3 cups water
4 Tbls. vegetable oil
2 cups (16oz carton) sour cream
2 teaspoon clear vanilla flavor
2 teaspoons almond extract
*Mix all dry ingredients by hand using a whisk in a very large mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and beat on low speed for 2 minutes. Bake at 325 degrees.
yes, im using the full 2 box recipe. thank you all soooo much!!!
I like to cut the sweetness down in that kind of cake with a fruit filling, such as raspberry.
hmmm....never filled a sheet cake before....i'm a little scared!
