Hi Everyone, I have been asked by a friend to make her daughters wedding cake. The only thing she wants is a white cake that is light and fluffy just like one she tasted at a bakery. I have been searching and trying out different recipes but they have all been very heavy. Does anyone know of a great white cake recipe that is light and fluffy? I need help!!!
Do you want a scratch cake recipe or do you want to use a doctored mix? If you aren't ready to tackle a scratch recipe, the WASC using all egg whites will give you a fluffy, white cake. If you are looking to do a scratch recipe, you will also want to find one with all whites. Even one with the egg whites whipped separately and then folded in. (personally, I prefer a more buttery and eggy cake that does not use the egg whites separately, mainly because i have not perfected that technique and the cakes usually come out a bit dry for me)
If you friend is looking for the taste of a bakery-white cake, chances are she is going to be looking for something that comes from a mix, as most bakeries that produce a high volume of cakes are going to be starting with a commercial base for their white cakes. Smaller, artisan bakers who advertise they bake from scratch are going to have a different texture and taste.
