I’m meeting with a wedding cake client in a couple days, and she has already told me that she wants a couple tiers to be
“french vanilla cake” ... I hate to sound ignorant, but I have no idea what this means! I would like to have an idea of what she is talking about before I meet with her… I’ve googled it.. and it seems to be a popular box cake mix. Help?!

Thanks everyone smile

It’s funny, some recipes don’t even call for vanilla but use buttermilk and others just use a teaspoon of vanilla….

I"ll see the bride tmrw and will keep you posted on what this “really means! lol

I agree with both Charles and CRenee…

I think I would add the extra vanilla in the cake as vanilla bean or vanilla paste for the speckles!

I’m very curious to hear the bride’s interpretation of the flavor!
