Hey everyone! I know this probably comes up every few minutes, but I am wondering about making a cake for a client from a box, vs. doing it from scratch? Does this take away from the value/authenticity of the cake? It's just that my chocolate cake recipe STINKS!!! I'd rather have a good-tasing cake from a box than worry about whether or not they'll like my recipe!! TIA for the expertise!

I plan on making the 'field' out of two, 2-layer chocolate cake (2 9x13s side by side) (from scratch),...
