I made the WASC previously and it was amazing! But now I have a baby shower cake coming up and she doesn't really care for almond taste. So can I subsitute the almond extract for more vanilla? Thank you in advance! Also my husband says I shouldn't put a cake board under each tier but I was under the impression every tier has to have a board underneath or it will sink into the cake below it. This is correct right?

You can absolutely use all vanilla (or try another flavor).

I always omit all the almond and use lots of yummy vanilla. As for the cake board, you really do need them and a support such as bubble tea straws or dowels underneath each layer. That is the only way to stop your cakes from sinking. HTH

I like to add a little butter flavor in place of the almond.

Yes, every tier needs to be on its own cake board and supported from below.

You don't really need a cakeboard under each separate cake layer but each tier (two cake layers which together are about 4" high). icon_smile.gif

Thanks Jan..I indeed did mean each tier not each layer. Thank you for the correction. As for the question about the bubble tea straws..I am in Canada and I buy them at a cake supply store called Flour Confections in Pickering, Ont. I am sure that most cake supply stores carry them though.

If you have any Asian markets around you, they are definitely sold there - either under Bubble Tea Straws or Boba Tea Straws.

HTH!
