It stands for White Almond Sour Cream cake. There are basically two slightly different versions of the recipe.

Here is one

and the other

They are slightly different. One uses whole eggs and the other uses egg whites only a bit of oil.

Good luck. There is also a scratch version in the recipe section here on Cake Central.

WASC is an abbreviation for White Almond Sour Cream cake. Was that your question or do you have a question about the recipe?

WASC's do start with a cake box base to which additional ingredients are added. As Sillywabbitz said, there is a scratch version in the recipe section.

Whole eggs means you don't have to add addional fat which is what the oil does. Also, if you are making a white cake and use whole eggs it will be off white where if you use just the whites and oil it will stay white. I personally perfer the non-oil recipe.

Thank you HereKittyKitty!! I didn't know if whole eggs/egg whites changed the texture of the cake or not! That's for the clarification.

It's ok-your English is fine. My French is REALLY bad. I haven't been to France in a couple of years. I used to go regularly for vacation but due to the economy I haven't made it back.

You know what they say about the language-if you don't use it, you lose it! I had a friend who was from Italy and he had been living in the US for about 20 years. He said when he went home he forgot his Italian!
