making boxed cake mix better

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have always used boxed cake mix, but now that I am going twoards a more professional avenue with my hobby I was wondering:

What do you do to make a box cake mix better for special occassion cakes?

Does anyone have any recipes for different flavors of cakes using box cake mix as your base?

How do you improve a box cake mix so that it stands up better when making a tiered cake?

I love using pillsbury cake mix, and I think it works great on a single tiered cake, but I don't really know how it stands up when doing more than 1 teir, or more than just a double layered cake.

I am sorry if this has already been posted. I have searched all over for ideas about this but can't seem to find any. I would love to know how to make a lot of different flavors using the box cake mix. I have tried homemade cakes before, but I don't have much luck with them. Thank you for all of the help.

Click on the 'Recipe' tab here on CC. On the right of that page is a list of cake types. Click on 'Cakes from Cake Mix'. There's a boat-load of enhanced recipes there. HTH icon_smile.gif
In my opinion, cake should be at the base of the Food Pyramid.
