          Is this the one that you said tastes like Wedding Cake????????

          Wedding Cake is one of the few types of cakes that I like.

              EMail - yes, this is like a wedding white cake that is not too heavy in sweetness. We really like it because it is more dense than your standard white cakes. You can use this as a base for the Lady Baltimore cakes also because the fillings are generally heavy and sweet or even the raspberry filled cakes. OH YUM!!

                This sounds really good, and I love a dense cake.
                A man of words and not of deeds, is like a garden full of weeds.

                  I'm saving it - as I thought I had previously but hadn't.

                        Got my attention too ... we also prefer our cakes to be a bit dense. Printing also!
