Help! Has anyone heard of a wedding cake flavor called "wedding cake"? I have a consultation Saturday and the bride asked me if I know it. She's from Louisiana and said it's popular there. She said the closest thing is almond flavored cake. I'm thinking WASC if I can't find it. If anyone knows about this, please help. Thanks.

Further digging just confirmed it's WASC. Yay!!! Here's the recipe I found from a lady in New Orleans. She said the cake is very popular there.

Cake Ingredients:

1 (18.5 oz) box white cake mix
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated white sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup sour cream
4 large egg whites
1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 325° F. Place cupcake liners in cupcake pans (approx. 36)

2. In a large bowl, whisk together cake mix, flour, sugar and salt. Add remaining ingredients and beat with hand mixer for 3 minutes, or until blended.

3. Use an ice cream scoop with a sliding arm to fill cupcake times. Fill about 3/4 full. Bake about 18 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.

Icing Ingredients:

3 cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter (at room temperature)
1/2 teaspoon clear vanilla extract (add additional almond or vanilla extract to taste)
1/2 teaspoon clear almond extract
1-2 tablespoons whipping cream

Directions for Icing:

1. In a large bowl combine sugar and butter on low speed with hand or stand mixer. Mix until well blended.

2. Add vanilla and almond extract and whipping cream. Continue to beat on medium speed for 1-2 minutes more adding more cream as necessary for desired consistency.

3. Decorate your cupcakes as desired. I used a piping bag with a star attachment for the icing. Many wedding cake cupcakes are decorated with edible pearls for a cute finish.

Hi, i think this is what you are asking. Might not be. Sharon Zambito from Louisiana, got us aquainted with this in her icing making. A lady from La makes this and is now offered at gsa and maybe other sites. Wedding Bouquet flavoring.

here when people ask me that I give them almond pound cake to taste and they always say OH YES that's WEDDING CAKE!! I would imagine "wedding cake flavor" is subjective to WHERE you are and the local traditions.

Thanks. I own this flavor already. I'm going to see which she likes better.

That's so good to know! I wanted to at least get really close, but now I think I can nail it knowing this info!
