In need of good dense cake recipes - Page 2

post #16 of 29
I always just use a cheap Pilsbury mix (I've heard too many horror stories about Duncan Heinz to use it!) with an extra egg and a box of pudding mix added to what it calls for. My "white" cake is the Pilsbury white mix and a box of cheesecake pudding (and I use the whole egg). I haven't had anyone complain yet that it's not totally white. It's YUMMMY!

Does adding an extra egg and the pudding mix make it denser?

Yes! It's really good and I haven't had trouble torting or carving yet. It freezes well and isn't too crumb-y.

It's a carved butter cake covered in fondant. The wheels are RKT covered in choc fondant. The hat is a sugar cone. I'm very pleased with how this turned out. It's a little bumpy, but not bad for my first fondant cake.

Now I need to try some chocolate cake recipes for the stand up M&M cake my oldest son wants for his birthday.


Your cake is very cute.

Thanks for the tip, KittyPTerror. I'm definitely going to have to try that.

Thanks for the complements Solecito and dabear. I had a lot of fun doing it.

Bijoudelanuit, that cake recipe sounds yummy. I'm going to have to give it a try next time.

This may be a stupid question, but.... do you use instant pudding, or cook and serve?

Cook & serve is best.

I don't actually have to make the pudding, do I? I just put the powder, and the egg in with the box mix, right?

......... don't actually have to make the pudding......just put the powder, and the egg in the box .......

 

Yes, put the egg in the box and add it all together :) hehe - joke:)

No, you don't make the pudding, just add the dry powder into the dry cake mix ingredients.
