Hi. I haven't been cake decorating that long, but my question pertains to a homemade cake versese a box cake. I have made both. the homemade cake receipe I got out of a cake book. Although, my husband and I find it really tasty and like the densness of the homemade cake (I'm assuming it's that way for carving). A lot of people like the boxed cake, because they, obviously, come out more moist. I am following the homemade receipe to a "T" and it has come out the same way every time, so I am assuming that that is how it is supposed to be. Is there any way to make the homemade cake more moist and fluffy like a boxed cake would come out, but keep the flavor of my homemade cake, which I find so much better? Also, for carving a cake, do I have to make the homemade cake or can you carve a boxed cake? If you put it in the freezer?

Thanks for all your help.

Try Wiltons Butter Cake or Go to Karen's Kitchen.com and try the "Yellow cake" recipe. That's the name of it. "Yellow cake"
