OP your posts are a little confusing but from what I grasp, you're being taken advantage of. You pay the cost, labor, and delivery while all she does is recommend you (which she should be doing anyway since she's a planner and the client is paying her already for such services). Have you tried looking around for rental rates for other kitchens? Calculate the cost of using her kitchen (your current arrangement including the hefty chunk of your cake money you're giving her)...

OP, even if anyone handed you a fool-proof scratch recipe, you're almost guranteed to have to bake it a couple of time to get it just right, and adjust it to your own specifications and circumstances (especially since you're transitioning from box cakes to scratch cakes which is a whole 'nother animal).FromScratchSF's white cake has been recommended but more importantly, look at her instructions. Even the best scratch cake recipe will not...
