Thank you for posting this recipe. I have never tasted a pink champagne cake, but it has always been a favorite of my husbands. I added strawberry mousse for the filling. I used strawberries that I soaked overnight in champagne and a little sugar. I also wanted to be sure that you could taste the champagne, since some of the reviews said it cooked out during baking. So I brushed the top of each layer with champagne. I also used a whipped cream frosting. I like the red and white look with the strawberries and topping so my version is not pink. I did use the exact cake recipe. My husband thought it was even better than the professional wedding cake he had. Thanks again!
I tried making this cake for my birthday and followed the rcipe just as it says and I got one of the best tasting cake ever. All my friends enjoyed it and more that I loved it :D Thanks for the recipe!
This is a very good cake. For the cake and the frosting in addition to using the champagne I also added a few drops of Lorraine oil in Champagne flavor from my local craft store. The champagne flavor cooks out while baking, so the oil really helps. I just made a buttercream frosting and used the oil for the flavoring and put a thin coat over the cake under the fondant which was also flavored with the same oil. I had tried to make the cake from scratch but did not turn out as good as this one did, so for my daughters wedding this is the recipe I made. This cake does not produce a dense cake suitable for stacking, rather a lighter one, so I used pillars and stacked the rest, since I had done other flavors. I should have left this for one of the top layers, not the bottom! Everyone loved the cake.
This cake has been the standard birthday cake cake in my house for years. I used a sweet Asti Champagne this year and everyone loved it. I prefer whip cream frosting and I have been known to dig a well in the bottom layer and fill it with custard. This cake has always been a hit no matter how I fix it.
Sorry, but this cake was nothing special. Neither I nor the 3 other people eating it could detect the champagne at all. It just tasted like a slightly better version of a cake made from a cake mix. I followed the directions exactly for both cake and frosting.
I have actually made this cake twice for my 16 year-old nephew's birthday. I subsitute the champagne for whatever energy drink he is into when his b-day rolls around.This is a great recipe. Thanks for posting it.
mmmmm...mmmmmm....good... Used this recipe for cup cakes at a baby shower...they were a hit! Make me feel special...thank you Jessica.
Made this for my parents 60th anniversary and niece decided this is the wedding cake she wants. Easy, easy, easy. The cake did not take as long to bake I might add. Thanks Jessica
