Man am I easily influenced! I was at Wal Mart yesterday for about three things and bought some french vanilla non dairy liquid creamer to try in my buttercream, as suggested, and 6 DH cake mixes at 84 dents each. I'm making a french vanilla cake this afternoon and using the new icing recipe on it. Can't wait to try it. My stores here don't offer the variety of white cakes I've heard others talk about here, but I found french vanilla. Heck, I just love white cake. I'll find room someplace for the other mixes.
Guess I'll have to get me another tub and shelf for hubby to squeeze into the stairway. Ü

Usually I just make my cakes from scratch but if I am in a rush I use Country Organics brand, I have found it works very well. It is available in the natural food section or in a natural food stores. It runs more than DH or BC usually a 1.99 a box but tastes very good. Those who eat my cakes (family, friends) always complement on the taste and texture.

Flayv & Diane~

DH cake mixes are $1 here at the commissary. I stock up on yellow, white & devil's food every month. For the past 2 months I have not been able to get them because the shelves were empty! They only had the kind w/ pudding in the mix but I don't use that kind. I finally got mad & asked an associate why the shelves have been empty for 2 months. She told me that a lady who decorates cakes comes in every Monday & buys at least 25 cakes at a time!!!!!! I was POed big time!! She said the lady calls & orders her cakes. BUT the commissary has just been ordering for her & not for the regular customers!! That made me madder! I don't care if she buys all those cakes that's her business what I do care about is that the commissary isn't ordering enough for me. I said I was going to complain but I keep forgetting. My hubby was at Super 1 Foods over the weekend & there DH was 99 cents. So he bought me several. might just start getting them from there. AAFES does some stupid things! I know, I used to work at the BX. There so screwed up!
