Looking for a good recipe for cupcakes and frosting for a wedding - Page 2

post #16 of 27
Shanter is right. It is best to go to allrecipes.com and find recipes. I've used it for years for all kinds of foods.
Look for the recipes with the most ratings, and highest. Read through the ratings to see if there are many people who changed things. Then make test batches to see if you like the recipes.
Or do what Mimi said, and work with existing recipes you may already have. Only you can figure if a recipe is good enough for your purposes.

I use buttercream dream (you can find it in the recipes on this site) for almost all of my cakes.  Plus, you can modify the flavoring to suit your needs (use some almond extract and some vanilla extract, lemon extract, etc).  One batch of it if whipped up a little higher speed should frost at least 35 cupcakes.  It takes on color pretty well, but if you are adding a lot of color to the frosting, you might need to add a touch more extract to soften the flavor.  If you can't find the recipe on cakecentral, message me and I'll get you the link.

 

Good luck with the wedding!

I love the WASC cake.  Also called White Almond Sour Cream cake.  I use vanilla and almond extract for my flavor of choice.  I also make it chocolate by using a chocolate cake mix and using only vanilla extract.  My cake mix of choice is Duncan Hines.  I'm on my laptop and don't have the recipe on this computer sorry.  I'm sure you can find it on this site, or Google it.

Are you looking for chocolate or vanilla?

Hi, I am kind of in the same situation as you. I need to make 88 cupcakes for my father's 88 year-old birthday party (coming in two weeks) And the cupcakes and frosting/buttercream need to stay at room temperature for more than 10 hours so the guests can take some home. I am using Rose's Heavenly Cake (the book) where she has some really nice cupcake recipes, I have already done 3 to 4 batches, all turned out great. I don't eat cupcakes (a weight watcher) but once I had my first bite, then I could not stop! The only problem I have now is the buttercream/frosting all too sweet to me as I don't like sweet thing. Good luck.

Does your frosting have any salt in it?  I like using a little salt to cut the sweetness.  I use a 1/2 tsp. per 2# of confectioners sugar.  You could always use a little more, but be careful you don't add too much.

Try Elisa Strauss' White cake, you could be able to find it on Google or at your library (where I originally found it and have since gotten her book). I've tweaked slightly the recipe for my own use but it is usually the one I use and  should probably be a good start for you. It is very fluffy because of the egg white but try to use a higher quality vanilla extract because you can really tell the difference. Hope this helps!!
