since joining CC i've been seeing WASC all over this site so its only right that i try the recipe to see what all the rave is about lol
well, after so some research i discovered 2 "original" WASC recipes. one includes just egg white and the other mentions 3 whole eggs.
my question is, has anyone used any version of this recipe and what were your reviews.
i would like to use this recipe tonight for a 3 tiered bridal shower cake, so i want to make the best cake possible.
I use the 3 egg recipe - fabulous results every time. Have never used the egg white recipe, so I cannot compare. Also learned that you can change the 1-1/3 c water to another liquid. For instance, I have a wedding cake in April that is made with Raspberry Champagne - all I will do is make WASC using a sweet raspberry champagne (flat) instead of the water. Amazing results. I have made several flavors of WASC - lemon, orange, red velvet, chocolate, yellow, devils food, french vanilla (yum) and champagne to name a few. All perfect every time. Good luck
great! i was gearing toward the recipe that calls for the whole eggs because i really wouldnt know what to do with all the left over yolks lol
anybody else have any reviews on the WASC recipe?
Just for future information - the eggbeater egg whites are just as good as cracking eggs and there are no yolks to contend with. I use them for SMBC and angel food also.
hmmm, i've never made SMBC...is the recipe on here?
Yes and it is to die for - I have never eaten anything so silky in my entire life. Here is the one I use.
One detail that seems to be omitted is after mixing in all of the butter and finally vanilla, put mixer on med/hi to hi speed and let it whip - it will go thru a stage where it looks like curdled milk, but keep whipping, when it makes a slapping sound against the bowl, it is done.
thanks! this recipe is totally different from using PS and butter
I actually combine the two. I like the egg white recipe because it has the extra water and oil. The "original" recipe seems a little denser to me, but I don't like hastling with the egg whites so I use the whole eggs but the other recipe. Also when you want the white white cake you should use the egg whites only. I buy the carton of egg whites and just measure them out. You can freeze the egg whites so I can buy more than I need and then I have them handy.
