Why do people like box cake better than homemade?
I have been baking from scratch since i was 10 years old, but when i was in my early 20's I started using a box mix. The best white cake is Pillsbury, ether way you prepare it is ok, I
prefer the whole egg recipe myself. Chocolate, Duncan Hines , but I add some real cocoa to
it and it taste like homemade. Yellow, I use Duncan Hines but over the last couple of years
they have changed something and I not quite fond of the mix anymore. I have been working
as cake decorator for over 25 years and the cake shops i have worked at, all, use some kind of cake mix only one place made her chocolate cake from scratch. Mixes do seem to bake better with less crumbs and more moistness , but that's just my opinion. I have never
had anyone say that cake was awful, I have had more compliments on my cake but
i actually think it is the frosting!!! Always use butter, ratio of half butter and half shorting and real vanilla extract, no one has ever complained only compliments. Good Luck to all
PS I've worked in grocery stores all I can say is FROZEN!!!! and for how long, too long!!
