Hi all, I think that I read here a little while back that some of you add dream whip to your cake mix to make a denser, higher cake. I'd like to try it today, but I can't find the thread. Has anyone done this before?
actually I just did used a recipe over the weekend that had dream whip added and it was AWESOME!! it makes the cake very moist!! If you want a really dense cake for example for carving and such, there's a really great recipe onsite called the cake extender recipe that makes the cake dense and very moist!!! It uses ingredients that you have in the kitchen rather than having to go to the store.... good luck
Hi, I always use a packet of Dream Whip to my cakes, and am pleased with the results. Janice
This may be a dumb question but what part of wal-mart would you find this dream whip. I would like to try it!!
usually by jello & pudding mixes
(which in mine are in same aisle as cake mixes)
Adding Dream Whip is my standard concoction nowadays, but I don't feel that it really makes a dense cake. It makes a finer-textured cake...that's for certain. I add a package of Dream Whip and 2 extra eggwhites. I prefer eggwhite for cakes rather than whole eggs. If the mix calls for whole eggs, I'll put one (or two, if it calls for four whole eggs) and then put in two whites for every egg called for....then add my two extra whites. I think the combination of Dream Whip AND the increased egg whites both contribute to the finer texture. I had only done it on white cakes until recently and found that I like it just as well for chocolate and flavored cakes as well.
