The bride I am making a wedding cake for wants her flavor to be marble. Should I use a traditional yellow cake or go for the white cake? Also, does anyone have/know of a good marble wedding cake recipe? Thank you!
I would do a white and chocolate marble for a wedding.
I would ask the bride if she has a preference. When I make a marble cake, I just make up a recipe of chocolate and one of vanilla, some as always and marble the two together in the pans. No special recipe.
To me a choco marbled cake is yellow and choco but there is no hard and fast rule. It could be white. When I make a fruit marble (cherry or say strawberry) I'd use white cake. I'd probably ask the customer if they have an idea of what they want. Here is a great recipe for wedding cakes. https://www.cakecentral.com/recipe/7445/the-original-wasc-cake-recipe When making a marbled cake, I'd save out about 1/4 to 1/3rd of the batter and add cocoa powder to it for the choco marbling part. If it's a fruit marble I'd just use a high quality jam and marble that through the white batter.
