If you're looking for a dense and delicious, professional quality cake that does great for icing, here it is. It is quite versatile (chocolate, lemon, white, marble, and more). Have fun and enjoy! icon_smile.gif

White Almond Sour Cream Cake*

* (or 2 c. + 2 TB cake flour)

Double the recipe makes:
One 18 round and one 10 round
All 4 sizes in the Wilton petal pan set

For berry flavors: *You'll need to add a little extra batter to each pan for this version.* I found I needed at least another cup and a half of batter for a 10 inch round when using the fruit version.

Lemon cake: This variation is excellent with a raspberry filling.

Marble Cake Poundcake:
I follow box instructions but add 1 package, 4 serving size, of instant pudding - I use vanilla, use 3 tbsp. oil, reduce water called for by 1/4 cup or use that amount in milk, use an additional egg than what is called for on box.
Follow baking instructions per box.

*When you don't have a Marble Mix but have a yellow mix, you can turn it into a Marble Mix easily by following the above but with the Yellow mix and reserving 1 cup of your batter to which you add 1/3 cup cocoa powder and proceed as directed.
