Enhanced Box Mix Recipe..

Posted by SammieB I have tried a couple of the other enhanced cake mix recipes on here, and for some reason none of them really did it for me. Most contained sour cream, and my cake just didn't seem to have the flavor I wanted. So I kind of mixed a few together to see what I could come up with, and this has been my winner for a while. It's dense enough to stand up to the weight of buttercream and fondant, but still has a nice light feeling when you eat it. Ingredients 1 Box Cake mix (preferably Duncan Hines) 1 Box pudding mix* 1 stick softened butter... read more

Red Velvet Cheesecake Cake

Posted by love2box This an absolute FAV of my son and neice. I made this for my son's birthday last month and he actually forbid me to eat anymore of it (which I should be grateful for!). If you love the one from CCF, then you will love this one. Ingredients Red velvet cake mix Cream Cheese Frosting (store-bought or make your own favorite). I prefer from scratch just because it holds up better. CHEESECAKE RECIPE 2 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 tsp. vanilla 2 eggs Instructions Bake cake as... read more

My Ultimate Red Velvet Cheesecake Cake

Posted by love2box My son loves the Stephanie's Red Velvet Cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory/Sam's but they are so expensive. This is my version of the cake, since I don't do red velvet cake from scratch (too difficult for me). You have the option of using the store-bought cream cheese frosting or use the cream cheese frosting you like best. You can also choose to double the cheesecake and make 2 layers of cheesecake Ingredients 1 box red velvet cake mix 2 containers of cream cheese frosting (or homemade) 2 pkg cream cheese, softened (4 pkg if you want 2... read more

Pumpkin Cake

Posted by rogslov I make this every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is just a simple cake that I sprinkle confectioners sugar over the top of when cooled or as ready to serve. This is also good with a cream cheese pumkin icing(I add a small amount of the pumkin mix to the cream cheese icing) Ingredients approx. 1c. pumkin ( I make the larger can of pumkin, pour what I can into a reg pie crust(8") then what is left is what I use for this recipe) 1 box white cake mix 2 eggs 3/4 c. water 1/4 c. vegetable oil Instructions I mix the cake... read more

Easy Poppy Seed Cake

Posted by sav421 This has been in my mom's recipe box for as long as I can remember. The cream sherry is what makes this cake so special - it can be made without, but it just would not taste the same to me. We usually baked it just as a bundt cake with confectioners sifted on top, but I recently baked them as cupcakes, and they domed beautifully! Ingredients 1 pkg yellow cake mix 1 pkg vanilla pudding 4 eggs (room temp) 1 cup sour cream 1/2 cup oil 1/2 cup Cream Sherry 1/2 cup dry poppy seed Instructions Combine all ingredients and mix at... read more

Chocolate Almond Cake

Posted by Anonymous After a little tweaking, I came up with this yummy chocolate cake. Very moist and delicious, but holds up well to stacking and fondant. This makes about 8 cups, enough for 2 - 9"x13" (but you can halve it and it comes out just as great). It's really great with chocolate peanut butter frosting! Enjoy! Ingredients 2 boxes chocolate cake mix (I used DH devil's food) 2 cups sugar 2 cups flour 2 - 3.4 oz. vanilla or chocolate pudding instant mix 2/3 cup oil 8 egg whites 2 tsp almond extract 2 cups Parisian Almond Coffee Creamer (Coffee... read more
