I have decided (and am really excited) to make my own wedding cake. I’ve been trying out different cake recipes over the last couple weeks and can’t seem to find one that I like – all of them are crumbly, dry and just don’t taste very good. Does anyone have/willing to share a good homemade wedding cake recipe? I was planning on just using yellow cake (to keep it simple, and its my FI favorite) but am open to any suggestions. If I can’t find one soon I may just have to hit up Duncan Hines, lol!
Thanks for the help and suggestions!

The “Whiteout Cake” with white frosting from the original BAKED book are fantastic: gorgeous, delicious, and easy to work with–I made them successfully even without sophisticated tools (more than one cake pan, stand mixer, offset spat), so I’m sure you can do it, too!
This is NOT my blog (don’t I wish), but Sweetapolita made it and has the recipe online: http://sweetapolita.com/2011/03/my-bakers-crush-baked-and-the-whiteout-cake/

Smitten Kitchen did a wedding cake on her blog a few years ago. She did a great job of documenting the entire process:

- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. In another bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Add the sour cream, vanilla and eggs, mix well. Add your dry ingredients in 3 steps–do not overmix, just make sure everything is combined. Pour into 2 round cake pans and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
**depending on the size of your cake pans, you may need to double this.
This is a basic yellow cake I modified from a recipe I found on chowhound. It goes really well with chocolate frosting or cream cheese frosting. The sour cream keeps it pretty dense and moist.

@gcwest: Her buttermilk cake recipe is awesome! Though my mango curd didn’t turn out as well for some reason.
