Hi, fellow bakers! I have someone requesting a birthday cake that "tastes like wedding cake". What does that mean? What particular flavors? I think some places sell "Wedding Cake flavoring", but I'd like to use something I may already have. Maybe a combo of vanilla and almond?? Help, please.

In my experience that usually means a white or white almond cake.

Most people who don't do cakes think birthday cakes come in yellow or chocolate flavor (anyone else find "yellow" as a flavor to be bizarre?). So when they go to a wedding, and get "white" cake, they call it wedding cake flavor.

In my experience, "Wedding Cake Flavor" white cake with almond flavoring

my cousin once asked me for a birthday cake that "tasted like wedding cake" but what she was really after was the look of it: You know, 3 or 4 layer with fillings inbetween; instead of just a two layer cake with filling.

I made an 8 inch WASC cake with filling and she was happy!

In my area, wedding cakes tended to be more like pound cake vs. a fluffy box mix cake texture.

I would dig a little deeper with at request and see if it's color, flavor, style or texture they are after!
