Concerning Wasc-Style Cakes

I have a strange question.
I am just now becoming familiar with the versions of cake that use a mix and add other ingredients to it. They look great and I am sure they are wonderful too.

My question is this--Has anyone added the extra ingredients to a homemade mix? I make my cake mixes ahead of time (the dry ingredients and butter/shortening) and freeze them, just to add the milk and egg whites later.

Would it even make sense to try this as an experiment? If anyone has I would love to hear about it. I know the boxed mixes have chemicals and such that make the WASC-type cakes work just right, but I just had to ask.

Do pardon me if the question has been answered before, I do admit I have not made it through the entire archives yet as I just joined this week.

Thanks so much!

It actually works really well. I make my own cake mix from scratch and adapt it all the time. It works great with this recipe too. I find!!
Hope that is helpful.

That is GREAT to hear! Thank you!
I was really wondering about it and had my fingers crossed.
I was mostly intrigued by the addition of sour cream the moist and yet sturdy properties described by other members.
I don't tend to use boxed cake mixes though unless requested by someone, so I was darn curious.

Many thanks!

I am already a hopeless case...
It has been 2 days and I think I have scanned several hundred pages of posts and seen almost every picture...

I can't believe it took me so long to find this place!

Thanks for the welcome too! icon_smile.gif

I know I was wondering what whole I had fallen into that I didnt know about it too. It is terrible addicting. I have been on for almost 2 yrs and still on it daily.
It is just crazy but a great learning tool and fun.

Ditto. I am not one to re-visit many sites, but it only one look here and now it is a full-blown addiction. There is no other site like CC!
