Cake mix for 16" round

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am making a wedding cake and the bottom tier is 16 round. I would like to use a white Betty Crocker mix, but I am afraid the top layer will crack when I place it over the bottom layer. Should I use a yellow cake mix instead since it is more firm? I hate to bake another cake last minute because it cracks. Any tips on cake mixes or scratch recipes are so appreciated! I would love to keep the cake white.

I have used the French Vanilla BC Cake mix. And I didn't have a problem with it cracking. I put my layers in the freezer for a while, just to make them a little more sturdy. Good luck

I always use box mixes. I have a 14" round and it takes 2 cake mixes. AND please make sure if you are stacking cakes ontop of cake that you have a good support system. Read the forum below. Just a thought. GOOD LUCK!! http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-4844.html
