"Oh, well, darlin, if you want to pay LOTS of money for a 100% scratch cake, we can set you right up! Now, how much more did you want to pay for your cake ... that will tell me how close to 'scratch' I can get this."
(but then .... I tend to take the smarta$$ approach to things!)
LaBella, I don't know why some have a problem with it. I sometimes flat out tell them, "If I baked from scratch, you couldn't afford me." No one ever walked out the door after finding out that I start with a mix.
But I will say (thanks to you bad influential CC'ers) that my chocolate cakes are scratch, now.
