Cake mix vs. scratch

ttoommyy | Feb 11, 2010 06:19 AM

While I am a pretty accomplished baker, I find that a cake mix will give me overall better results when making a frosted cake or cupcakes. I've made plenty of scratch cakes and some are a lot better than others, but for moistness and consistent results in baking times, I find myself turning to a box mix more and more. I'd rather invest the time spent in making scratch frosting, filling, decorating, etc. Opinions? Let the cake-mix bashing begin...I can take it. :)
