Homemade Cake Recipes and Wedding Cake Recipes From Scratch

Homemade Cake Recipes and Wedding Cake Recipes From Scratch

Making wedding cake recipes from scratch is not that difficult. Take it from me. I have been doing this for over 25 years now. The very first of my homemade wedding cakes was a carrot cake recipe and it was from scratch. Homemade wedding cakes are the best. The only time I Ever used a mix was in a high volume situation. It was exclusively the white wedding cake recipe that was slightly time consuming, and the chefs insisted upon my using their mix. If you have ever worked in a pro kitchen then you know how those head chefs can be at times, it is more about rescue money and time, but for me it is so much more about quality. I did administrate to sneak in all of my homemade fillings though.

Whether you are a pro pastry chef or an amateur baker manufacture homemade wedding cakes for friends and family, these tips may help.

Chocolate Cake Recipe


Try to stick with a simple homemade recipe such as one that does not need a lot of fancy steps. A dump cake recipe is a good choice. I know it does not sound so appetizing but dump recipes basically have one requirement and that is that all ingredients get dumped into the bowl at once and mixed. And that is it. What could be easier than that? One of my best and most frequently requested cake is chocolate buttermilk dump recipe. Have all of your ingredients measured out and at room temperature before you start the process of putting it all together. Making a wedding cake if taken in steps is just a matter of multiplying your beloved homemade recipe and baking them off in larger pans. Fill the cake pans 1/2 to 1/3 full. You can fill a pan a minute more if using a lighter batter a minute less when using a heavier batter. This is the part that you will need to judge as you gain experience. Always grease, flour and put parchment or wax paper along the lowest of the pans. Always let the cakes cool completely before surface and storing. You will need cardboard circles to put under each cake for withhold when lifting and animated the cakes. You need to decide how many layers your cakes will be before baking, you can bake each layer separate or cut your cakes in half to make two layers. (It depends on how deep your pans are and how much you fill them as to how many layers you get out of each cake.) For wedding cakes I prefer using a two layer cake with one layer of filling because it keeps the cake a minute more stable. But you will need to frame out your preferences.
