Need Wedding Cake recipe

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a good plain/vanilla cake recipe for wedding cakes. Mine tends to be too light to handle the weight of the fondant.

Thanks in advance,

Just putting this to the top so people will see it....
I know lots of people are using the cake mix doctor recipe for theirs. I can't think of the name but it sounds like a winner! Sorry I couldn't help.

I've tried the cmd recipe for white my opinion, I wouldn't say it's amazing...but it does taste good and is quite dense...almost pound-cake like.

From the top of my head, I believe you use cup whole milk instead of water, 1/2 cup of butter (melted), and one extra egg plus vanilla extract.

If anyone has a great white cake from scratch that they'd like to share, I would love to try it! Thanks.

If you can get a hold of "The Cake Bible" there is a recipe for a white velvet cake. That cake is great. I have "The Cake Bible: but right now I have no idea which box it is in. As soon as I find it I will post it. MC

I've made the "Wedding Cake" recipe I found on this site. It's definitely dense enough to hold weight. Pretty yummy too! You should try it. Here's the link:

Here is one that I have used off the box of Duncan Hines Classic Yellow cake. I think you can do it with other flavors as well.
1 Packsge Duncan Hines Yellow Cake mix
1 4 oz box vanilla instant pudding/pie filling(or you could probably use whatever you want)
4 eggs
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
Mix together and bake.
I think this makes a good moist dense cake...but not as firm as pound cake. It stacks well and you can easily cover it with fondant. You might try it on a practice cake to see what you think. Good luck! Let us know which recipe you end up using! icon_smile.gif

The recipe I use is:
1 box cake mix
1 package pudding mix
4 egg whites
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup water

Mix together and cook according to pan directions.

It makes it really moist and dense.
