The Wacky Cake, It was believed that Beatrice Fe O’Hearn was the inventor of the wacky cake recipe. The recipe was passed down to generations among her family and friends. The cake has been a favorite delicacy in many rural areas of the United States since in the late 1930s. The wacky cake has spongy texture and cocoa based. This cake is unique in a sense that it does not contain eggs and milk unlike the other common cake and pastries. It has active ingredients such as cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, sugar, vanilla extract, vegetable oil, and white vinegar. You can also add brewed coffee. And wacky cake may be served plain or with toppings like confectioner’s sugar and icing. A basic wacky cake recipe has cocoa, flour, baking soda, sugar, salt, vanilla, vegetable oil, vinegar and water.
When in doubt, make a test cake to see what happens when you refrigerate your cake with the intended filling and frosting/fondant. You don’t want to be surprised about this. Refrigerated fillings are delicious, though sometime they are a double-edged sword. Butter cakes do not taste their best right out of the refrigerator. Combine them with a refrigerated filling, and you have to make a choice. Cold cake or warm filling. Either one is not good. And, you don’t want people telling the host/hostess that the cake was ”dry” because it was cold. Switch to a different cake recipe or use sugar syrup on your cake layers before assembling to help the cake retain moisture so it doesn’t dry out while in the refrigerator. Remember that gum paste and royal icing decorations on a cake will be ruined if it is refrigerated.
Bake at 325 degrees to ensure that your cake stays level. This is important so that it will save you time because you won’t have to level the cake. You can go three or four layers without using dowels for support. Use a butter based frosting so that when the cake is refrigerated, it gets cold and your cake won’t move. Your cake can also be set in a cold area if you don’t have room in your refrigerator.
