If I wanted to substitute, say frozen concentrate, would you use the same amount as you do sour cream (1 cup)?

I substitute it in place of the water and still add the sour cream. Turns out great!

I use a recipe that is similar to WASC, and yes, I use the same amount when I do a liquid substitution.

Sour cream is not a liquid and it has fat in it. I don't think you can sub a concentrate for it. Additionally, the concentrate will have sugar and the sour cream won't. I think it will affect the consistency of the cake.

For high sugar substitutions several people cut back on the added sugar. I think the norm is to cut 1/2 cup sugar out of the 2 mix recipe. I tried subbing straight Torani syrup once and even though I cut back on the sugar, the texture of the cake was seriously off. Someone recommend I do 1/2 water and 1/2 syrup next time.

Substituting liquids is much different than substituting fats. The sour cream is part of the fat in this recipe.

If you let the frozen concentrate melt, it would still be the same amount that you are subbing when you are subbing the liquids.

Thanks for your help!! I got started on the cake as soon as I got home and didn't get to the computer.

Here's what I ended up doing

WASC cake.....no sour cream. Used white cake, Welchs Strawberry Breeze (it had pretty much thawed out), yogurt and a bit of Rum. No extracts.

I had a tiny bit left over to make cupcakes for me to try. O M G thumbs_up.gif

Texture good, tastes really great!

Again, Thanks! Its good to know you all are so very helpful!!
