Hi! I'm pretty new to cake decorating and I always use a boxed cake mix. I would love to make a cake from scratch, but there are so many recipes that I don't know where to start. I really want a great recipe that my family will enjoy. Will anyone share their favorite yellow or white cake recipe? Thank you so much! princess.gif

Skylar,

Welcome! party.gif Get the book Cake Mix Dr. & dr up your cake mixes! That's what most of us decorators do! Use milk instead of water, use sour cream, pudding, buttermilk into your mixes. It's so easy & tastes homemade! Good Luck! icon_smile.gif ~Tina~

I found a copy of that book at my local library. It was nice to be able to check out the book before I bought it.

I HAVE READ THAT YOU USE PUDDING MIX IN THE BOX MIX CAN I KNOW HOW,YOU JUST MIX THE PUDDING WITH EVERITHIG OR DO I NEED TO PUT MORE MILK BECAUSE THE PUDDING IS DRIED. icon_redface.gif

Use about 1 cup of milk or water & no more Nejiad. Didn't you just buy the Cake Mix Dr.'s Book? Look at one of the recipes that uses pudding & see how much milk or water it uses just to be sure. icon_smile.gif

one word of advice, i made a cake with pudding mix and it was very dense, it was good, but it was the opposite of an angel cake. make sure that's the kind of cake you want.
