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.
White Velvet Wedding Cake
A delicious, rich white cake with a tender crumb that can only be described as "velvety"!
Makes 7 ½ cups batter, enough for two full 8" rounds or one 9x13" sheet.
1 box Pillsbury or Betty Crocker White or Vanilla cake mix
1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. + 2 tbsp. cake flour (NOT all-purpose flour)
1/8 tsp. salt
1 1/3 c. water
½ c. melted butter (lightly salted)
1 c. sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract or almond extract (optional)
Mix with paddle attachment at medium speed for approximately 2 minutes, or until most lumps are worked out. It is not necessary to work out all the lumps.
Pour into prepared pans and bake at 325 until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, or with just a crumb or two clinging to it.
