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.
