Theres no need to add unless that is what you want to do. Just my opinion.
THat's pretty much what I did for decades. Only in the last handful of years did I start adding an extra egg and in the last 2 years started adding an envelope of dream whip.
If anyone asks me, I tell them yes, like many bakeries, I use a mix. Some bakeries use a just-add-water-mix from a 50-lb bag .... I use a mix from a 18 oz box and add water, eggs and oil.
