Hello All,

I wanted to know if anyone has any ideas on how to doctor a cake mix (Yellow or white). I know that you maybe can add sour cream or buttermilk and things like that. But I need a surefire recipe for a doctored Yellow or White cake mix.

Hi! I use the Cake Dr book. The yellow cake calls for:

1 yellow cake mix
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla

I use this all the time and it is a big hit and very moist.
Also, here is the one for the white mix:

1 package white cake mix
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup oil
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla

I have not tried that one, but all of the ones I have tried have been good. Hope this helps!

I used that recipe to carve a construction site cake and it was fine.
