I need an advice. I have a request for a strawberry cake with fondant for a sweet sixteen. I have one recipe but I'm not sure if it will hold fondant.

I've made this one twice, it's from paula deen. It's moist and dense and should do fine for fondant. I plan to use it this weekend for my daughter's birthday..

You could use the WASC recipe with a Strawberry Cake mix and add some fresh or frozen strawberries to the mix.

I used this recipe http://cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-4403-11-Strawberry-Cake.html and covered it with fondant for my airplane cake. Quite good and the people loved it. I was very pleased with how it held up.

I just used the Duncan Hines strawberry cake mix and also used the cake mix extender recipe and it was great. I topped it off with cream cheese buttercream icing. Everyone loved it.

Although I've never tried it with fondant, I use the Strawberry cake from scratch recipe in teh recipe section (that's literally the name) I use half heavy cream and half sour cream for the milk, and I love it. It does seem like it would be sturdy enoguh to hold fondant (I am planning to test that in a couple months, maybe sooner on my prototype). Good luck. icon_smile.gif

I've used this recipe: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipes_rate-4403-5.html that is simply called "Strawberry Cake" with excellent results. icon_smile.gif

Hi. Im just wondering if you could help me! I looked at that recipe for the strawberry cake there and it sounds great....I need a strawberry cake recipe for the top tier of a cake so its going to be going in 2x 6inch cake tins. Can anybody help me adjust that recipe to fit the tins. I am useless at adjusting foreign recipes!

That recipe is for 3x9inch cake tins!! I will be two or three 6 inch tins, depending on the height of the cake....


help meee!!
