A friend of mine is getting married for the 2nd time. She wants me to do her wedding cake, just a very small one, to serve around 20-25. She wants cream cheese frosting and white cake?? That doesn't really sound good to me. She said they're just plain and boring. Are there any sort of "white" dough flavors that will go well with the cream cheese frosting? Any ideas are definitely appreciated..... icon_lol.gif

You could do lemon flavored, or flavor with white chocolate or with a liqueur. Both the cake and the cream cheese frosting could be flavored. Check out this link for substitutions for WASC.

Thanks dmich! I did actually think about the white chocolate. I'm just not sure how that would taste with CC frosting. That has such a distinctive flavor and she definitely doesn't want BC. CC just seems a little heavier to me so in my mind it only goes with certain flavors. Is it more like plain BC that you can just put pretty much any flavor with? Sorry about the thickness in my brain today... icon_redface.gif just can't seem to quit thinking about red velvet combo.

Michelle could you do a white velvet cake instead of red. I've never tried it but it seems to me the taste would be the same just don't add the red food coloring.

OK! Different problem now! Talked to my friend today and she said it's not CC frosting that she wants, it's whipped icing! icon_eek.gif How do I do a wedding cake with whipped icing? I'm sure someone out there has done this and I need some pointers....PLEASE! Is there a way to smooth the icing well? Can you pipe with it?

This is the style she wants except she wants it on square tiers...? Can I get clean corners with whipped icing? Thanks for any help! icon_lol.gif
