Thanks for the answers.
Bobwonderbuns----I chuckle every time I come across your name. Would you be willing to share your modified recipe and what brand cake mix do you use?

Thanks everyone
Lily

Mine is similar to the one posted in the recipes section with several modifications. Do you want me to post them as well or stick with what's in the recipes forum?

Hi everyone icon_smile.gif . Okay, I'm a scratch baker but I'm no snob icon_biggrin.gif . I'm always looking for new recipes & when I came across this thread, I thought why not try Kakeladi's recipe. I baked the cake yesterday, had a slice of it this morning & had a second slice. It was delicious icon_smile.gif . Even my fussy DH enjoyed it.
I used a vanilla white cake mix & doubled the vanilla. Thank you Kakeladi for this yummy recipe thumbs_up.gif

stepping into this thread softly.....I also didn't care for the WASC cake with our homemade buttercream, but found it to be great when we filled if with orea cookie mousse and topped with ganache... it was also great filled with white chocolate mousse with fresh strawberries. I think it a less sweet cake than regular cake mixes so it allows the fillings to stand out...once again alone with buttercream it was not my favorite...i can also see why people who do carving like it, it is more dense than cake mixes alone...come one everyone likes different things and you just have to find the things you like.

I can't post it since it's a published recipe, but a quick google search should bring it right up. It's also in her book if you can find it at the library.



Hey Jeanne,

I see the recipe calls for sweet butter. Do you use unsalted or salted for this recipe?

thx!

I have used the WASC recipe for just about all my cakes and everyone loves them. Now I don't know if this will make a difference but I always fill them. Lately it has been with a homemade bavarian cream and fresh sliced strawberries. I needed a recipe to carve a guitar cake and have been using this ever since. Maybe it would help if you are not using a filling to use a simple syrup on the top or even poke a few holes in the top and pour some on.
