I have a chocolate receipe that I got from my cake decorator teacher. Every time I make this recipe it comes out way too fluffy that when you eat it It falls apart. Why is that happening to me? It's too soft to ice it. Here is my recipe:
1 chocolate cake mix
1 cup of flour
1 cup of sour cream
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 of vegetable oil
Please help I am trying to make chocolate cupcakes for this weekend.
Try the Durable Cake for 3D and Wedding Cakes recipe on this site and make it with chocolate cake mix and chocolate pudding. I can tell you that the vanilla is wonderful!
That's my go-to cupcake base recipe (the durable one from this site)... it's never ever failed me. ever.
That is basically the chocolate version of WASC. I absolutely HATE that recipe for cupcakes! It's like biting into a dish sponge! Blecch!
I have found that chocolate cupcakes made with DH Devils food cake mix, following the recipe on the box, makes the best chocolate cupcakes!
I have to agree with Diane that the DH devils food cake mix is the best! People always ask me how I make them so moist.
I use a wasc recipe for my cupcakes, but mine is different - it only uses 2 TBSP oil instead of 1/2 cup, and it uses 7.5 oz of eggs (you can measure or weigh -how many eggs varies on the size but usually about 4-5) and 2 tsp of vanilla. They are dense, moist, and delicious!
