I've been asked to make a transit bus for a party this weekend. (This is my first cake for someone other than family). The person wants it to be funfetti cake and I'm not sure if it will be durable enough. It will probably be 3 layers of cake plus it will be covered in fondant. I've never baked this cake before nor have I
even tasted it. Please let me know if this cake mix will not work..I would hate to waste the time baking and decorating just to have it fall over. Plus if it won't work I'll have time to talk the person into a different flavor cake. Any suggestion would be helpful Thank you!
Previously I have used the Betty Crocker Funfetti (with the WASC recipe) and it's been fine. Also, you could just add 2-3 tablespoons of colored jimmies (sprinkles) to your regular white batter to make funfetti.
If you add the WASC combination to the cake mix it will be just fine. And, I agree, that adding a tablespoon or two of jimmies will compensate for the added ingredients.
Thanks so much ladies...one last question I found the WASC recipe on CC Do I still add the vanilla and almond extract?
You can add the extra vanilla and almond extract if you wish, but it isn't really needed.
I wouldn't use almond for that.
