I have a wedding coming up soon and I need a good chocolate cake that is yummy and will stand up under fondant. I've never made the WASC could I make a chocolate cake out of it and use it? Maybe just add cocoa to it? Sorry for all the questions. TIA

One of my most popular is the chocolate wasc. In place of the white cake mixes, use chocolate cake mix.

In place of the liquid (water) I use coffee and chocolate creamer to equal the same amount of water

In place of 8 egg whites, I use 7 whole eggs.

And I do not use almond extract in it. Just vanilla

I've never tried this under fondant - but it's a pretty sturdy has been the bottom of a 3 tier cake and was just fine.

Makes up quick and easy in the KA.

CBMom's Chocolate Cake

2 1/2 c all purpose flour
2 c sugar
1/2 c cocoa
2 tsp Baking powder
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 c margarine or butter - just melted to soft (still has solid bits)
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups hot water - not boiling

Dump all dry ingredients into mixer - mix
Add in wet ingredients - just don't pour the hot water on top of the eggs - and mix until smooth..5 minutes or so.. into greased 9x13 pan for 30-40 minutes at 350*

There are two really good recipes on this site similar to the one posted by CBMOM and they are great. I use a chocolate ganache filling under the fondant and it holds up well.

best chocolate cake ever- fondant only makes it more moist! people rave about how good this is and it is super easy! i always put a thin board under each layer and use lollipop sticks as support just in case though, but it works well with fondant. for bigger cakes i bake at 325 for longer times.

The chocolate candy bar cake is just delicious and it holds very well in a tier cake, and the fondant keep it very moist. I made a wedding cake last year with each layer a different chocolate variation, however this was a hit. This layer ran out very, very fast and people were asking for more. I am currently working on another chocolate wedding cake and all the layers will be the same chocolate candy bar cake. Good luck on your cake!!!!

Cupcakeshoppe- this recipe is pretty versatile and forgiving. I have made it with beer before, turned out great. I forgot the oil one, turned out great. I tuned it into a white cake, was great! So i would go ahead and try the dutch cocoa. I am pretty sure that is all my friend uses and she has never complained!
