Toba Garrett - Moist Yellow cake - Page 4

post #46 of 58
Toba's Yellow Cake recipe is on page 277 of her "Professional Cake Decorating," the SMBC is on page 262, and Amaretto Mocha Buttercream is on page 263.

I agree, you should buy the book to get her recipes...it's soooooooo worth it and it respects her copyrighted material.

( i read up on this afterwards and i understand now what toba means)so in my opinion, the best thing to do is go by her weight measurements. you can get a very inexpensive scale from walmart for less than ten dollars to start out with.



Thanks for this! I'm going to look into her cookbook.
I ended up getting a digital food scale. Helps me when I'm baking....not to mention the never-ending diet! icon_biggrin.gif

playingwithsugar, I just found the recipe in her book and realized that I made SMBC. Ha ha, no wonder it's so good, it's all butter and liqueur.

I'm going to try her decorator buttercream for this week. It's supposed to crust.

I have my new scale now that will handle larger quantities of ingredients so this time I'll weigh them for the Yellow Cake. Mine was a bit dry last time and I think that was partly it and maybe I baked it a titch too long.

Taking the class that goes with her book is a dream of mine. Actually flying her here and getting private lessons would be first on my list. icon_lol.gif

Until then, I'll just dream, read her books and attempt to make my cakes look sort of like hers..... icon_biggrin.gif

Taking one of her classes would be a great excuse to vacation in NYC. Let me know, and I'll come in and show you around my home town!

I am in Toba's cake deco I class right now and we get to try her Yellow cake recipe this Saturday made by Toba herself. I am so excited!!! Ihave made it a few times myself for cupcakes and it comes out too dense for my taste. Maybe I will ask her this Saturday how to change it if I am making cupcakes! It is my last class in cake deco I and I am getting so sad that I won't be able to bombard her with questions anymore icon_biggrin.gif

Sue, please let us know her reply about the cupcakes! I am always on the lookout for a good cupcake alternative, and I also found that this recipe was too dense for my taste when made as cupcakes.

I was once told that replacing butter with margarine gives a recipe more suitable for cupcakes, but as I dislike margarine, I haven't had the courage to try it, yet!

I saw buttermilk as one of the ingredients...but no baking soda?  Should we add some?
