Cakes for character pans

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello-

I wanted to know if a doctored "Box Mix" is sufficient for a character cake pan?

I've seen recipes for 3 D cakes and durable cakes, etc, but I'm curious to know if CC readers use those recipes or doctor up a box cake mix for any of the Wilton character type pans.

Thanks-

Bunchy

I've used a doctored cake mix in a character pan before and it came out fine.

Wonderful. Thank you. I'm assuming for wedding cakes and maybe 3-D pans there's probably a need for a more sturdy cake, but I wasn't sure for the typical character pans. Then again, people may use doctored box mixes for those too.

Thanks for the response-

I think some pans may need the extender recipe. Not sure which ones, but probably at least the older ones. I think they've always called for a single boxed mix, but a boxed mix used to be 6 cups, not the 4.5 to 5 that they are now.

That makes sense. Thanks.

It's a Blues clues head that I'm doing.
