JA is asking: (3 answers)
Hello, I am going to make a mold cake (Wilton lamb cake) for the first time and it is recommended that I make a heavy cake, like pound cake. I am making this cake for a birthday and would like to make something like a strawberry cake like this recipe ( I am not sure if this qualifies as a heavy cake- my sister doesn't like chocolate cakes and I feel a pound cake would be too plain. I know she would love a cake like this strawberry cake (which I've made before and is amazing, by the way.) Can anyone please help as while I love to bake, this would be the first time I'm baking a cake that is supposed to stand on its own as a mold (versus regular cake shape) Thanks! J

You can use a strawberry cake mix & add 1 cup water 1/3 cup oil, 3 eggs & 1/2 box vanilla pudding mix (use the small pkg of pudding). This will make a dense moist cake that will hold up when you take it out of the mold.

I made that Wilton Lamb cake many years ago using only a cake mix and it held up just fine. It's not a huge mold so I don't think you'll have problems with it being so large and heavy that it falls apart.

There's a lamb cake recipe on here and Wilton has a recipe too. THere are tips on the Internet and decorating ideas. Google "Wilton lamb cake". (if you haven't already). Hope you find what you need!

Any WASC recipe would work fine. Strawberry WASC variation - 2 white cake mixes 1 3/4 c sugar 2 c cake flour 1-1/2 t salt 1 1/3 c strawberry daquiri drink mix 1 1/3 c water 2 c sour cream 9 egg whites 1/4 c oil 2 tsp strawberry extract or 1 dram LoRann strawberry 2 tsp vanilla You can cut the recipe in half if you don't need that much cake batter.
