Usually white cakes are the norm, but over the years I have received many unusual requests. Such as a cake made with rice krispies, yes I said rice krispies. (That's another story to write about later).
But you know what? you can make this as a plain every cake/dessert. Who says all wedding cake recipes has to be just for wedding cakes. So make a cake for the special birthday or just for the family as an after dinner dessert. Better yet, for just plain snacking.
