Still trying to figure this out... substituting these things for ... what other things...?

 

 

GREAT list ~ thank you for sharing! We have some of the same ideas, I just don't know how to pull many of mine off!

I want to find this cupcake thread ~ that's what I bake is cupcakes! Wondering how all these recipes hold up transferred to a cupcake instead of cake... only pages in... 400 more or so to go!

I am so grateful to have found CakeCentral and this thread! I've never posted before but i feel like i've received an education over the past year while reading through all the threads. So thank you all!

 

I am doing my first four tiered wedding cake for my sister-in-law in a couple of weeks. The person she originally ordered from just had surgery so is unable to make her cake now. She is a very laid back bride and has left the flavors ( and the design) to me. :shock:  I was hoping to use some of these recipes to really give her an awesome and unique wedding cake. The wedding is 400 people. I am doing 14,12,10, and 8inch rounds and making 2- 12x18 kitchen cakes.

 

My questions are: 

 

Iv'e noticed its said many times that some of the recipes are very moist. Are they sturdy enough for stacking 4 tiers of this size? They will be covered in fondant.  I plan on using SPS (first time) too, so that should help.

 

How many different flavors of cake is appropriate? Her only request was banana and chocolate.  I always seem to go the most challenging route, and after reading the fist 137 pages of this thread my head is spinning and I want to make 6 different cakes!

But then I remember my children are in the wedding. I will be very busy that week!

 

Thanks in advance!

 WASC versions are the only recipes I use, and I've been making fondant cakes for 7 years now. I use them for carved cakes, as well.

 

I suggest only 3 flavors, or you'll have an abundance of guests requesting particular flavors, or grabbing a second piece to try another flavor.

Friends of mine recently went to a wedding where they ran out of cake as the guests all took at least 2 if not 3 servings to taste the 3 different flavours....the bride and groom were mortified and didn't even get to taste their own cake (even though they did cut it)!!

the peril of serving more than one flavor

I didn't even think of running out of cake! That would be so embarassing. We usually have two giant sweets tables at either side of the hall at our family weddings. It's mostly Greek pastries and cookies, but usually every family brings something then packs up take home containers at end of evening. If anything, we have waaay more desserts than needed. I'll probably stick to two or three choices.

all they had to do was control it as it was being served by having the cake cutter and servers say, "please make one choice, after everyone is served you can come back for seconds"

 

i advised my brides to order more servings if they wanted more than one flavor

Yes, I love it as a cupcake. Just be careful not to overbake!

Thanks so much for that info. this is my first time in cake central, I am a new to the world of baking cakes, for a while all I've ever baked were a variety of flavors of cornbread and monkey bread, it wasn't until this year where I started taking cake decorating classes, now I think I'm stuck on cakes.
