I need to make a 24 cake sqaures later in the month and I want to know what is the best cake recipe for cake squares.I tried using a box cake and adding extra cream cheese and milk but this did not work. I dont know if it was the icing or the cake.but the sides just soaked the icing.
was the cake warm when you iced it? that could cause the cake to melt the icing and make it 'disappear'. so are you asking for a cake recipe that doesn't soak up icing or an icing recipe that doesn't melt into cake? also, what flavor cake and what type of icing (buttercream, smbc, imbc, cream cheese, etc). all this information will help you get a better response
I need a better cake recipe. The box cake was to moist. I used a no cook icing recipe to cover the cakes I did not use buttercream.
I used a no cook icing recipe to cover the cakes I did not use buttercream.
American buttercream is no cook.
If you provide more specific info - you'll receive more specific help.
try the 'white almond sour cream' cake (found under the recipes tab) for a no-fail delicious cake that stands up to icing and fondant. and as jan h mentioned, buttercream is no cook so maybe you could give it a try as well i use half butter/ half shortening to stabilize it a little, but there are many great recipes out there and i'm sure you'll find the on you like!
