I just bought a box of the new cupcake mix from BC. As far as I can tell its just a half size of the regular mix. How do I doctor it? For a regular box cake I usually add a box of pudding and 1 egg to the instructions on the box. I can halve the pudding, but what do I do about the egg?

I could never figure out the logic behind a mix that makes half the cake for twice the price.

I say go buy another one and double it ... then just use regular cake mixes from this point forward.

Amen to that Debi. I saw them when it first came out and couldn't believe it only made 12 cupcakes and was more expensive than a regular cake mix. Bake up a whole mix and freeze the cupcakes you don't need. I do!

i saw them when they first came out and thought the same thing. 1/2 the mix for twice the price. it would be cheaper if you bought a regular mix and tossed 1/2 in the garbage,not that i ever would. always someone here at home that would eat them.........

it is marketed as cupcake mix because it makes 12 cupcakes. but in reality it is just 1/2 a cake mix. you could probably make a single layer cake with it if you wanted to. just another gimmick if you ask me.JMHO........

I personally have used the cupcake mix and used 1 box of sugar free instant pudding and 1 1/2 TBL of unsweetened applesauce NO extra egg to make a moist cupcake.
If you want to you could add just the egg white if you thought the whole egg is too much.

I don't understand the need for a cupcake mix. I've read in some cake decorating books that cupcakes shouldn't be made with cake mixes/recipes, but I don't get it. What's the difference?
