just got a order for an italian cream cake, have no clue how to do this one so i looked in the receipes found several, she wants it for a birthday can this be done dont know if she wants writing or not, if it has coconut in it can decorating it be difficult?? what would you charge for it im making a 8 or 10in rd if i do it Thanks everyone
Decorates the same as any other cake--really great with cream cheese filling!!! My recipe has coconut, pecans and maraschino cherries in it--it's my daughter's favorite kind of cake!!! YUM!
I use a white cake base and then add:
Have never tried the cherries but sounds YUMMY!!!
I make italian cream cakes for alot of weddings and a few birthdays. I usually frost w/butter cream icing or add some cream cheese to it for a cream cheese buttercream icing. I always use cream cheese for the filling. It makes it easier to decorate if you use straight icing without adding coconut. Makes it better to put designs/decorations.
This is Chocolate Italian Cream Cake... I had such a hard time carving this cake because of the nuts and coconut in it. But taste wise, it is very good. I substituted butter/shortening with oil to make it more moist, and it worked.. This was my entry to the CA State Fair last month and I got First Place for it.. it was judged on taste, not so much with looks..also toast your coconuts.. it enhances the flavor.
mencked... do you mind sharing your recipe? It sounds so yummy I would love to try it! My daughter loves...LOVES cherries.
