Always room for more ....Welcome marzipan30!
Wondering what type ingredients you can't find there ?

We don't have Bettercreme here nor do they sell a huge amount of boxed cake mixes (think at the most there are 3 Betty Crocker ones!!). which is a huge pain as some of the doctored recipes that are posted I cant try but they all sound soooo yummy!!

Oh yep those are main ones icon_sad.gif(
Bettercream is also the same as ..I believe pastry pride....and I think under one more name that's real close to being the same as bettercream..
Would you maybe find it under a different name ?

Welcome Marzipan.......I live in the USA--northeast and can't find bettercreme....so don't feel alone!


Did everyone enjoy their holidays? As well as holiday baking? It's monday night and the snow blizzard is on here in the northeast. I'm looking forward to getting back to a "regular" schedule now that the holiday are over and that means trying to finish reading this HUGE cupcake post!

I'm loving this thread, but I'm only on page 40. LOL....I've learned so many wonderful things, both in here and on this site in general. Thank you to all you dedicated CC'ers. Thought I'd post a pic of my cupcakes made with YummyMummy's recipe that I got from this thread. They are totally awesome. Thanks to the OP!!

Okay, I guess the pic won't post. I'm so pc challenged. icon_sad.gif

Help with doctoring a cake mix & frosting.

I wanted to use juice concentrate, would it best to use a white cake mix or a yellow / butter cake mix ? What would be the good and bad of using each one ? & how much concentrate should i use ?

Also when making frosting / icing Whats the difference between using unsalted butter vs using shortening? Would it be best to mix combination of both ?

Thanks again!

If it was me I would use a white cake...when I add flavors I add them in place of the water in the recipe.
I still add the oil but replace the water with my new liquid of choice icon_smile.gif
It may be fine with a yellow cake as well but I like that you can really see the coloring when you add it to a white mix!
Not only tasty but pretty as well.

HOLY COW it's taken me a week to get through pg 90, so I apologize in advance if someone has asked this... I made the Double Chocolate Layer Cake (from Gourmet) last night and it had a weird floury texture to it. Everything else about my cupcakes was perfect, except for this after taste. Has anyone else had this problem with this recipe or clues as to what I could change?

I think I've only made it once and I don't remember why I didn't want to make it again but it obviously didn't work out for me either. Here is a link to the recipe with reviews. It looks like it works for a lot of other people though and I noticed it is one of the highest rated chocolate cakes here on CC.
