Ok everyone, the verdict is in! I made 4 yellow cakes and I have ratings for all!!
T. Garrett's cake --- it was too heavy and not moist enough. It felt like my mouth was overwhelmed with cake and I needed something to wash it down with !
I'm sure again it's operator error! - Thumbs Down!
Swan Down's 1234 Cake: It was Great! I like the flavor, it was moist and light. In addition it was sweet! (Which I'm a fan) -This is the only receipe (besides the Hershey Chocolate cake) that calls for both baking soda and powder. Wonder if that makes a difference on the texture? - Thumbs Up!
Naty's Cake: It WAS GREAT! I liked the taste.It too was light and moist and SWEET!! My husband thought it was a little too sweet-- but how can a cake be too sweet!
hehehe It was very similar to the 1234 cake above... - Thumbs Up!
Rose's Favorite Yellow Cake -- It was ok -- it wasn't dry. This receipe called for sour creme -- which made the texture different but not bad. Overall I liked it but not better than Naty's and the 1234 cake on the swan down website. -- Thumbs in the middle? (Is that even possible? )
So everyone who has come to my rescue --- THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! Thank's for all the PM's and everything. My launch party is Saturday -yes I'm in business. I'm doing this part time since I still work full time. I wanted people to taste both chocolate and another flavor cake -- so again, thanks for helping out!! I will post with this thread a picture of the party and will be thinking of all of you!!!
Thanks again for all your help! I LOVE CC!!!!
