What about adding some unsweetened Kool-aid for flavour - the one when you have to add your own sugar? Dissolve it in the liquid. Your cake should be sweet enough.

I've tried adding orange juice before...a little is okay but too much and you mess with the PH balance of the cake and it won't rise.

ok, so I am a new baker/decorator, but I do not understand the WASC. To me you are making a cake from scratch and adding cake mix. If you are going to go through all that, why don't you just make the whole cake from scratch? What is the cake mix for?

For me, scratch cakes and mix cakes are not the same. I prefer (I guess because I was brought up on) mix cakes.

I think the WASC is similar to a "Gourmet mix"

Scratch cakes can be tough...you need the right recipe as well as the skills to properly make it. Mixes almost always come out good (so long as you don't over/under bake.)

The WASC is a box mix with an extender used to extend the amount of batter you will get from the mix. Also the mix adds stability to the recipe and the cake itself where many scratch cakes cannot hold up to heavy decorating because they are too light.

You HAVE to check out the thread with the gourmet cake flavors - I'm sure that's the link that Bobwonderbuns has. At least for the recipes. I have learned SO much from that thread. I know that you can use flavored creamers to enhance the cake flavor, but you have to be careful because too much sugar will mess up the texture of you cake.

Go fix yourself a pot of coffee and check out the thread about the gourmet flavors - just be ready to pull an all nighter icon_lol.gif !

The link in my signature is to the one thread where I put all the different recipe links (google documents) and the threads they came from all in one place. icon_lol.gif The links to both the Gourmet Flavors thread and the recipes that stemmed from it are in there.

Where can you buy creme bouquet? I've heard of it being used for buttercream for icing wedding cakes. But I've never seen it.



I bought it from a local store in town but I know Country Sweet Arts sells it also.
