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.
Thanks. That helps some. Any other ideas?
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!
Thanks again, everyone who answered. You guys rock!
