What is the best way to make a cake mix a little bit more dense for covering it in fondant without using the cake mix extender recipes? I just made the wasc recipe and didnt much care for it. I may be the only one here that doesnt like it. icon_redface.gif Any input would be greatly appreciated.

What was it about the WASC cake you didn't like? And which recipe did you use? (kakeladi's *original* or the other one?)

To make a cake dense, add sour cream (about 1/2 cup per mix).
OR, add pudding - one 4 serving box - dry - per mix.

Thanks for the information. I used the recipe that uses all egg whites in it. It was too heavy for me. I didnt like the texture at all, too gummy . I was also wondering why some people use milk in their cakes instead of water. What does that do to the texture of the cake? I guess I can always bake one and find out, but the last thing I need is more baked goods around here. Ugggghhhhhhhh, trying to lose a few pounds before my daughters wedding.......Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
