Last weekend I mde a wedding cake and I used Pillsbury white cake mix and used buttermilk instead of water. The layers baked perfect. The cake was 4 tier stacked. Everything looked fine until Saturday morning. Around the bottom of each tier, it had a "tea stain" look. I don't know what happen. I've used pillsbury before but not with buttermilk, the BC was the same I've used for years. I notice something new on the cake box - "1 cup pudding added to mix for extra moist cake". Maybe the cake was to moist - but "tea stain" color?!??!?! I took pictures but did not show up. I was embarrassed but at that point I could not do much with it. I tried to cover up as much as I could with fresh flowers cassading down from top. There was no filling - just BC. Any thoughts?
