How to Make Wedding Cake

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Grease and flour three 8-inch pans.
  • Combine the buttermilk, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, margarine and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the egg yolks one at a time, then stir in one teaspoon of vanilla and almond extract.
  • Beat in the buttermilk mixture alternately with the flour, mixing just until incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  • Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.
  • Stir in pineapple, coconut and 1 cup pecans.
  • Pour batter evenly into prepared pans.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Allow cake layers to cool 10 minutes in pans, then turn out onto wire racks to cool completely.
  • To make the frosting: Cream together the butter, cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until blended.
  • Stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla and 1 cup pecans. If frosting is too stiff to spread, stir in milk a teaspoon at a time until it reaches desired consistency.
