Pink Champagne Cake Recipe

If you want to try something a little different from your usual boxed cake mixes why not try a champagne cake? Making a champagne cake is easy to do from just about any recipe. All that need to be done is for the liquids in the recipe to be replaced with champagne. So if your recipe calls for 1 cup water just replace it with 1 cup champagne. You can use whatever kind of champagne you prefer, you can even use wine. If you want to add a bit more of a pink color to your cake just add a drop of food coloring to your batter before you bake it.

Traditional Pound Cake

This is a traditional recipe for pound cake. It’s just a pound of everything! Now you can add to this recipe or even take away if you like.

No matter how you do your recipe this is the one you always start with.

Marzipan Recipe

Marzipan is a great medium to work with. It is usually used to make shaped fruits and animals. Whether tinted or airbrushed the marzipan holds color very well. It is also used to fill chocolates, as an ingredient in pastries, and to cover cakes. Some bakeries even add a layer of it underneath fondant so your cake taste even better! You can also flavor marzipan which is also a favorite of mine.
