That was my first time using grease proof mini liners. I'll never buy them again.

What do you mean by "wedding cake"? Wedding cake isn't a specific cake flavor, it's just cake eaten at weddings, which can be anything from almond to red velvet - and all points in between.

It's pretty silly, don't you think, to give up on greaseproof liners after ONE go? There are so many variables involved which affects the final product (ESPECIALLY when baking from scratch), that it is almost impossible to determine exactly why you think the liners were crap. Maybe the recipe sucked, maybe that brand of liners are crap- or maybe they are awesome, but for some odd reason didn't work with that recipe. If I interpreted the previous posts correctly it seems like you jury-rigged a recipe without test baking several times in case there was troubleshooting that needed to be dealt with.

Umm, yeah. I assume she's making white or vanilla. But with all the hype where people name all their flavors crazy names, birthday cake seems to be a flavor now. I assume its a mild vanilla, like Walmart birthday cakes.

I love the Hershey's chocolate cake recipe on the back of Hershey's cocoa.  It can be made with cupcakes or cakes. I bet it is good with the mint chocolate mixed in them. I will have to try it some day but with normal butter cream icing.   I made a birthday cake from Hershey's recipe and did peanut butter- butter cream icing. Everyone loved it. 

In fact, a neighbor who had told me 8 months ago that she hated chocolate cake happened to be over there when they cut the cake. She tasted it only because the people were commenting to her that it was the best chocolate cake they had ever eaten.  She then later came over to my house  to tell me that she had never tasted chocolate cake that was so moist and that the peanut butter icing made it that much better. 

 

She said she never liked chocolate cakes made from grocery stores because they were so dry.  I also agreed with her because I hated chocolate cakes from the grocery stores as well due to being dry and tasteless.   It did make me feel good to have someone rave about my cake!!! Especially someone who normally hates chocolate cake!!!I have to give credit where credit is due and Hershey's recipe is the only chocolate cake I will ever use now./Mary

I live in New Orleans and here wedding cake is always white cake with tons of almond.

I have no need for greaseproof liners and bought them by accident. I don't buy liners with prints and prefer the see through look. I buy only white liners and occasionally brown. So I'd rather just stay away from them completely than go through what I did again. Even my trustworthy wedding cake that I've made in minis before messed up in those liners.

The chocolate was fine after it sat. In fact when I made the chocolate in the regular liners it was perfect...the best chocolate I ever made. I did not have a chance to get the ingredients for the chocolate until the night before I made it...was low on sugar, eggs, no buttermilk, etc. So I couldn't test it. I was going to get chocolate boxed mix if it failed but decided to trust the good reviews and ratings...which all proved to be correct icon_smile.gif.

That is our standard wedding cake flavor whether it is just called almond cake elsewhere. Every bakery in Louisiana labels their white cake with almond as uwedding cake...it's been like that for generations. We even have ice cream shops and snowball stands that sell wedding cake flavor and they label, spell it, and call it wedding cake(which is just almond flavor). I've never had to explain it so many times LOL. Normally when I say wedding cake people know its almond.

It's so cool how different areas have different foods, names, etc. unique to that area.

I'm near Baton Rouge. We take "wedding cake" to mean white almond and "birthday cake" to mean vanilla. Lol.

Exactly and it's been that way since my mother's mother was around lol...minus the birthday cake as that seemed to have emerged everywhere the past few years. Folks were making it seem I was living in my own world LOL. Thank you.

That is so strange! Do people ever order something else for weddings? Like chocolate cake, or carrot or lemon?

Definitely but if they order white cake w/ almond it's called "wedding cake". It's definitely more popular than plain vanilla and always the #1 selling flavor in the bakeries and cupcake shops here for all occasions...right with red velvet. I've only been to 2 weddings where "wedding cake" was not the flavor cake. I think it was called that bc white almond was almost always the flavor cake chosen for weddings.

And usually a filling is chosen with it like strawberry, raspberry, pineapple.

When I went to order my college graduation cake, I told the lady I wanted wedding cake(almond). She said she makes nothing with almond. My family and I almost fainted. People at my party were shocked. First and only bakery that I've had this happen.

I only went with her bc her work was the best in the area...and her from scratch vanilla was the best in the area...which I chose with half strawberry and half Bavarian cream. Would've bought an "almond" cake if I was living in New Orleans still then.
