Great ideas! Thank you!
She has post it notes under the cakes.. of course going to know which is boxed.. should’ve been blindfolded..
Very helpful, exactly what I needed
Enjoyed this and you
I did some of your hacks and it turned out GREAT! Thanks for the tips :)
What! Being a taster is a PROFESSION!
Where do i get that job!
Lol they are both homemade
Add coffee to your chocolate cake mix…
Could plain yogurt be used instead of sour cream?
I want to be a professional taster! Im in the wrong career
Visually, a homemade cake is much denser than a box.
the milk substitute is only for non-chocolate cakes. In boxed choc cakes, use water and add a little coffee plus sour cream. Dried meringue powder also.
She loves the word, "RICHNESS"
I am not a good baker. I always used the box cake hacks Nicole recommended for 30 years. Milk, butter, 1 extra egg and vanilla extract. My family always thought my cakes were homemade. They were. I made them in my home.
Would you please tell me how to make a Sacher Torte from a box cake mix? 😄😄😄
