I'm not sure if this is a disaster yet but I'm not sure where else it would fall under.. Anyways I'm baking a strawberry cake; add the ingredients in the mixing bow and I don't know how I read the box wrong but I put in 1 cup of oil instead of 2/3 (using 2 box mixes so I doubled it)

Is this going to be OK? has anyone done anything like this or have any thoughts? Will it screw the taste up? This sucks lol

Thanks !

Not sure but just cut a little plug out after it cools and taste it.

Well, I always put 1/2 of oil to each box... even if it calls for less oil. I always get a very moist cake and love it... If i plan to carve it in some way, I make sure to freeze the cake a couple of hours.

So if your are baking 2 mixes, I think you'll be fine.

It's only 1/3 cup more oil. You should be fine.
When I do a butter cake I awlays add extra butter for a moister cake and never have a problem. icon_biggrin.gif

It will make it just a bit moister. I also add a touch extra oil. It won't change the tastes or consistency since it wasn't a huge amount extra.
