I usually use DH and add a small box of pudding. I have to make Funfetti, so bought Pillsbury. Do you add pudding to it since it already has pudding in it?

On the rare occasion that I use a cake mix I always use Pilsbury and I do add a box of instant pudding to the mix, along with one extra egg. I also use 1.5 times the oil it calls for. My cakes this way always turn out great. For the funfetti mix, I'd suggest using the white chocolate or cheesecake pudding. The vanilla pudding will turn your cake a tinge yellow.

Otherwise, if you prefer to stick with the DH and pudding that you normally use, you can always make a white cake and add a jar of colored jimmies (or sprinkles) to the cake to make it funfetti. You can also choose the colors of the funfetti if you do this.

Hope this helps!

Thanks so much! I wasn't sure if I should add the pudding and extra egg! Thanks for the quick reply!

Ok, my cake is finally done. It's a 12in round, I used the pudding and extra egg, a flower nail in the center, and baked at s this because I used the extra pudding? I hate to bake the second layer the same way if the pudding is the problem.

I don't understand your wording. Did you encounter a problem with the cake?
And BTW, whenever I do funfetti cakes, I just use my standard white mix, whether box or scratch and add 1/2 cup rainbow jimmies to the batter.

Sorry...I was using the laptop with the pad mouse thing, and it skipped words when I typed.

I baked at 325 with a flower nail, and it took forever. It's much darker than the cakes are normally.

To clarify - how long was "forever"? I've had cakes take longer than I thought they should, but I've never had mine come out darker than usual. Have you calibrated your oven temperature lately to make sure that it's accurate?

I didn't really time it...I started checking it when I started smelling it. I just know that it took longer than the cake I made last week the same size and is darker. Off to bake #2. Hope it works fine!

I primarily use Pillsbury and I still add a box of pudding to the mix.
