I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED BAKING CAKES AND SEEING THE FACES OF THOSE EATING THEM. BUT RECENTLY HAVING TO LEAVE MY JOB DUE TO HAVING ANOTHER BABY, I DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO START MY HOME BUSINESS BUT I'VE ALWAYS BAKED FROM BOXED MIXES AND I MYSELF CAN ALWAYS TASTE THAT BOX TASTE NO MATTER WHAT I SEEM TO ADD AND FEEL I CHEAT PEOPLE. CAN ANYONE HELP ME TO GET MY BUSINESS STARTED? IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPREACIATED!

Well, I can help you with a great yellow cake recipe:




This is like a base recipe, you can swap out the vanilla flavoring and use a different extract (example-me and the kids used peppermint extract along with some vanilla-OH so good!!)

My *Original;* WASC cake recipe is a wonderful cake based on a mix w/sour cream added.
Here's a link to where I have posted the recipe.

I bumped a thread up for you in the "How Do I" section. We were discussing cake recipes earlier in the week, and there are some more recipes included in that thread.

If you like the idea of a doctored mix, my all time most requested is the Cake Mix Doctor's "Butter Cake" recipe.

Take 1 white cake mix (I use Pillsbury)
add 1 stick melted butter
1 cup milk
3eggs
2 tsp vanilla

I bake mine at 325....for a 9x13 it usually takes about 25 to 27 minutes. It's done when the sides pull away from the pan and a toothpick comes out clean or with a few crumbs.

I finally have tried all the recipes. Now I don't know which one to chose icon_biggrin.gif My family loved them all and are split on which is best. I thought of using one for fondant covered cakes only and one for buttercream because of the different textures i found the cakes had and thought the more softer cake should have the buttercream frosting. does this make sense or am I just making more work for myself? icon_redface.gif
