When converting a cake to marble, do you prefer using yellow or vanilla? I see most are yellow, but I was considering using vanilla.
Thoughts? Experiences? Personal preference?
I use vanilla, but have done yellow twice. It is my preference for vanilla just because when I marble with, say, red velvet, or strawberry, I like the contrast as opposed to yellow. I don't even think anyone ever notices lol
I think that originally a 'choco marble' cake was yellow w/dabs of choco batter swirled through it. If you want to make a vanilla/white cake go for it :) There really is no right or wrong. You can make all kinds of 'marbled' cakes -- I've done strawberry, raspberry, and even butter pecan in white/vanilla batter.
I remember one time yrs ago getting an order for a somewhat large cake because another decorator refused to make a yellow/choco marbled cake w/choco icing. If I remember right she inisited 'NoONE makes a cake like that!"
Haha, that is funny kakeladi! Why would anyone refuse to make something as simple as a marble cake with yellow cake and chocolate cake?! Talk about finicky!
It was the chocolate icing she was so upset about I mean I’v made dozens of WASC white cakes w/Bavarian cream (Henry&henry sleveved) for one customer which I think is rather boring & could not convince her to try any other flavors but of course I would not refuse her order
