Contacted Pillsbury about Smaller Cake Mix Boxes - Page 4

post #46 of 48

I don't see where the recipes posted have been adjusted to account for this size change.  I am fearful of trying any of the recipes that are older than this change for fear they won't work properly.

I just found this thread when I went to the internet to see if anyone else was having trouble with Pillsbury since the change in the size of the cake mix.  I own a bakery and have forever used  9 boxes of the 18.25 oz size of Pillsbury to mix a batch in my 20 quart hobart.  But you guys are correct in saying that something has changed as well about the formula of the mix.  I am still struggling to come up with something halfway presentable to the patrons of my business.  I am having to add cake flour, sugar and baking powder and it has to be mixed very thoroughly and carefully by my bakers to come to any point acceptable by me.  This takes much more time and effort as well as expense and it is still not as good as using the cake mix alone as it was before all the changes were made.

 

As far as the huge 50# bag that I can get from Bake Mark.  This one has changed as well.  It used to be a very good one in the 50 # bag, but this one has changed in that it is very, very salty.  The rise is good on it, but it tastes like you are eating salty bread.

 

I have a cakecentral account or membership, but I don't come here often, so if anyone finds out anything that will get us back closer to the old cake mix, please let me know.  I will be checking in a little more.  Glad I found this thread!

They have white and devil's food cake mix at TBK, The Baker's Kitchen. Haven't tried either, but the white has great reviews; the other only has 1 review. You can order 2.5 pounds or a 25 pound bucket. I'm going to order some of each to try it out.
