I am making a marble (choc. and vanilla) WASC cake for a friend's daughter's 1st birthday and I just realized I have never made one! I bought choc., vanilla, and marble box mix, but I have no idea where to start or which one to use! I have made the vanilla WASC a million times though. Help! I need to make it tonight (or tomorrow morning at the latest)!
I just did a marble cake for 150 serving graduation cake.
I actually used the yellow cake mix and made it exactly the same as the WASC but used butter flavoring instead of the almond flavoring.
I also made my regular dark chocolate fudge WASC (that uses instant coffee in the recipe).
To make the marble I filled my pan with 1 cup yellow batter then 1/2 cup chocolate batter and continued this until my pan was filled appropriately. I then used a toothpick and did a quick swirl through the batter.
It turned out VERY nice! People were going back for 2nd and 3rds so I am assuming they liked the flavor.
Hope that helps.
Thanks! That's what I think I'll do. I've never made a choc. wasc either though! Uh OH!!!
I just make a regular WASC recipe large enough for the entire cake, then add cocoa powder to a portion of it. Add the cocoa flavored batter by spoonfuls to your batter in the cake tin and swirl it around to mix with the regular batter. I've found if I make the chocolate batter really chocolatey. it's best to add a little bit more liquid to it so that it is the same consistancy as your regular batter. HTH
