I am a lover of the Cake Bible and now have a small cake business that is based almost entirely on Rose’s recipes which I think are the best out there. I am forever gratefully for that wonderful book that is now falling apart from over use.
I need help from all wonderful bakers out there. I have had my business for almost two years now and it is growing in leaps and bounds because people love my moist delicious cakes (Thanks Rose!!) but I have one thorn in my side that is causing me to fail. I keep having requests for marble cake and I guess I just don’t know what marble cake really is or how to make it properly. You see, I don’t think I’ve every had a marble cake and honestly I guess I just don’t get it. I thought it was a white or yellow cake with thin swirls of chocolate running through. I’m guessing from this womens reaction that I am way off. Previously I used the Checkerboard Fantasy cake recipe but instead of using the special pans I marbled them together. I kept getting complaints about how dry it was…which is so unlike my usual comments. So I thought I would try marbling a white cake recipe so I took the White Velvet Buttercake and mixed in some chocolate in to some of the batter and swirled it in. I call a scalding review and am horrified. What am I doing wrong? Does anyone have any suggestions? I refunded her her money but I have another cake order on Saturday for White Marble…any suggestions would be so trememdously appreciated. Thank you in advance for anyone willing to take the time to help me.
