Is there a spread sheet for the chocolate, with recipes, as well?

I can't open this link either.  Help!  Is it working for anyone or does anyone have it saved that you could share?

I love this thread. I'm going to try the new SW yellow cake today and decrease the milk to 1/4 cup.  I'm testing it out on a sheet cake.  Has anybody tried this recipe in a sheet cake?  I would hate for it to sink in the middle!

 

 

Also, question....why was the White on White recipe included in the yellow cake scratch off?  I was under the assumption yellow cakes have yolks.  Am I wrong in this?

I just made the Slyvia Weinstock yellow cake (with 1/4 c milk adjustment).  I was really disappointed at how much it shrank! The taste was ok, but I didn't fall over with excitement. 

 

Also made CakeLove's yellow cake.  Loved the texture.  Taste was ok too, but I subbed all vanilla for the brandy.  Why can't I get happy with a yellow cake recipe?

i use the original sw yellow the one with sour cream--and i typo-ed the flour--i use 2.5 cups--works great though--i use 2 whole eggs and two egg whites and i just add them to the well creamed butter and sugar--i do not whip the egg whites & yolks separately--just toss 'em all in and get a good emulsion from that point--

 

and it comes out as a white cake--ti's very pale--someone else made this and it was super yellow--don't know why mine comes out this way but it does--

 

yellow and white cakes can take a lot of trial and error

  I'm surprised it works so well with half the eggs!  Maybe the other person's cake was more yellow because they used all the eggs.

 

I'm just about to throw my hands up in the air and use butter cake instead of yellow. I think part of the issue is that I grew up on yellow cake mix, and I'm having a hard time replicating that without all the chemicals, lol.

the sw one that i modified is only lacking two egg yolks--it has 4 whites and 2 yolks--more than ample--

 

i got another recipe that is more of true yellow cake--will send it to you by pm--i think the 'yellowness' comes in through the flavoring when you add lemon, almond and vanilla--imo--but still yet it is called a white cake--but it comes out golden--

 

most of the bakery bakers i ever worked with would tell you that yellow food color is what separates the white and yellow cakes 

 

color, chaos & cake :lol:
