doctored cake mixes? - Page 3

For the "Chocolate Covered Cherry" Cake, I just wanted to add that King Arthur's no longer sells the mini cherry chips.
To be honest, I wasn't sure what they even looked like...morsels or dried up cherries. Here's the info: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/items/Cherry_Baking_Mini_Chips

I found a few other places that sell them, although I don't think they're mini sized.

Macsmom - thank you, thank you, thank you. I love the WASC and I have tried it in varius flavors, but I had never thought of some of those. What a great resource!!

By the way, add a Mudslide to your list...

Use the WASC recipe with White Cake mixes and substitue water for Kaluah and Vodka. Fill with fudge or chocolate buttercream....


YUMMY, YUMMY and turns out of the pan beautifully!! It is one of my most requested cakes now!

Thank you flour pots and Mandi!

I guess I hadn't thought outside of the box: I had a Mudslide cake but I took it off the list because everyone recognized the Kahlua cake more and they were too similar. But I was making them both with chocolate mixes!

Maybe I'll call it a "White Russian" and use a Kahlua flavored white-chocolate truffle filling (LoRanns Kona Coffee flavor).

(I have about 55 flavor combinations on my list! icon_eek.gif )

MacsMom, I apologize if this has already been asked or if it is common knowledge for everyone else, but how much is 1 dram? I did a google search and it says 1/8 oz, but I wanted to check. Thanks so much for the amazing recipes. I have them all saved in my recipe file and just have to decide which one to try first!

mbt4955....on ebay the little Lorann flavorings (1 dram) are advertised as 1 tsp.

I don't think the Lorann site mentions an amount specifically.

In any case, I have found that 1 dram measures out to a little less than a tsp.

Thanks, FlourPots. I usually order larger sizes directly from Lorann, so I will use a measuring spoon!

Yes, 1 dram = 1 teaspoon. LoRann sells a few of their flavors in larger bottles, but not the butter for some reason. I know that CK brand butter flavor goes rancid very quickly (I've gotten a bottle taht was rancid before Iopened it!).

They are candy flavoring oils that are very concentrated, but some of their flavors are a lot stronger than others. Cherry, amaretto, and pina colada are powerful!

MacsMom, I can't wait to see your post . . . Anxiously waiting . . .
Some people are afraid of heights, not me. I'm afraid of widths.

I intend to live forever . . . so far, so good.
