Reliability – An indication as to how reliable your Cake Maker is going to be can be gleaned from their reputation or testimonials and reviews that may be posted on Internet forums and review websites. However take any testimonials that a Cake Maker may offer you or display on their own website with a pinch of salt (they’re not likely to publisise any negative testimonials). Normally professionalism and reliability go hand-in-hand so try and assess how professional your cake maker is. Some Cake Makers take on so many bookings that a delay to one cake or an unexpected illness could jeopardise the delivery of your cake, however other cake makers deliberately take on fewer bookings in order to give themselves some flexibility.
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.
If you decide to use fresh fruit in your filling, please make sure to use the freshest fruit you can find and prepare it as close to serving time as possible. If you must put the cake together the night before (for example, strawberry cake with fresh strawberries in the middle, cut the fruit in half. Smaller pieces will get mushy overnight and not make a good presentation. Not sure how to properly whip the cream for your filling, use the aerosol can version, sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar and add your fresh fruit and cover with more canned whip cream and more confectioner’s sugar. If your cake has a fresh fruit filling and the cake is covered in fondant, stack the cakes at your venue. The fondant will get gummy if you stack them sooner.
Okay, by now, you know, I do research on trivial/little known traditions, so let me tell you why, supposedly we are to keep the top of the cake for a year and then eat it with your spouse on your one year anniversary. You know I had to know. One, because it seems so random. Two, our cake did not make it through the first six months (My husband had never heard of that tradition and thought that I’d forgotten that we had cake in the freezer. Ate, some of it and then called to remind me that we had cake. Do I hear a collective intake of shocked breath?) The tradition comes from the 19th century [There were a lot of things pertaining to cakes happening during that century. I wonder if Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom loved cake. Yum.] Anyway, during the 19th century, it was usual and expected that the bride and groom would invariably have a child 9 months or so after their marriage, so the top layer of the cake was saved to have at the Christening. This was before refrigeration, so where were they keeping it? For nine months and was it still any good? Boggles the mind doesn’t it? Maybe they were filled with liquor to keep or fermented or fermenting fruit?
