HELP! Gourmet flavors???? - Page 6

post #76 of 6395
MacsMom, now that you told me you look everywhere for inspiration I've found myself doing it too.

I picked my dd up some new Skittles (Wed are our treat day) that are double flavored. They had a cherry lemon that was so good, so my wheels were turning and I thought

Cherry Lemonade: Lemon cake w/ cherry filling

Then I remembered how much I LOVE Sonic's Strawberry Limeade

Strawberry Cake w/ lime curd (not too tart though)

I can't wait to give these a try. Or if someone has let me know how they turned out. I think they would be so refreshing in the summer

My problem is coming up w/ a complimentary buttercream.

MacsMom, forgive me for being stupid, but can you please tell me what WASC stands for and perhaps a recipe for it.

Plus, explain what you mean by adding a white mix to a flavored mix.
Does it mean you add more flour to the cake mix, wouldn't you have to add more eggs and liquid as well? How much flour and how much liquid?

I would like to venture out of the boxed mixes and tackle my fears.

Baking is a science that one cannot screw up. I am not a scientist, just a decorator. Most of the time I use box cake mixes because they're no brainers. I do add pudding to my mixes to make them more dense.

Thank you sooooo much for all the cake flavors. They are much more creative then my 5 basic flavors.

My only thing is that ALL of my cakes need to be non dairy. so i am always on a lookout for substitutes like non dairy sour cream, non dairy creamer, Margarine instead of butter, etc.......

Well, I tried to venture away from boxed mixes but I found that 100% scratch cakes just weren't as good. The WASC (white almond sour cream) recipe is scratch enough for me! It is 2 mixes, 2 c flour, 2 c sugar... Here is the link with more info
http://www.recipezaar.com/White-Almond-Sour-Cream-Wedding-Cake-69630

The strawberry, banana, and lemon cake mixes tend to be a bit too sweet and moist, almost too synthetic. So I use one box of white cake mix and one box of flavored cake mix, then enhance the flavor with pureed real fruit (banana, strawberry) and flavored yogurts (and lemon juice for lemon cake).

I do NOT like the butter-recipe cake mixes with this recipe. They don't taste as good and have a different texture.

The WASC uses only 1/4 c oil and I quite often use yogurt in place of sour cream.

MacsMom, you are the best!!!
I would have never found this recipe on my own. The posibilities for me now are endless. I feel like I just lost my virginity. icon_smile.gif
I have been on the web site before, but was overwhelmed with all the recipies. The way she explains the substitutions is fantastic.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. you have made my day.

I cannot use yogurt in the WASC recipe, but I can use non dairy sour cream. Plus, I looked up LoRann flavored candy oils and I have never seen that many flavors in my life.
How much of the oil do I put into a recipe?

Now you got me brainstorming about different funcky flavors.

...I know! My mom brought me a recipe for honeycomb last night and my mind went immediately to. "How can I use crushed up honeycomb in a cake?" A honey cake?

1 dram of LoRann = 1 teaspoon. It is very concentrated flavoring so 1 dram is usually all you need to add to a double recipe like the WASC or to buttercream.

wow, in that case, it's a bit expensive.
Still, I am really excited to be opened to a whole new world.
I am at work right now surfing on recipezaar. I really should be working. Can't concentrate on work with all this brainstorming. icon_smile.gif

Right now you can get 15% off with coupon code "Anniversary" if you buy them at already reduced prices at
Fo nd ant Sou rce .com/lorannoils.html

(I had to break it up like that because CC blocks their website. I don't know why, though - they offer 10% to CC members with coupon code "cakecentral").
