I realized it too late that it's muffin mix icon_sad.gif How do I turn it into cake? I bet it will be dense and heavy. It says to add 2/3 cup of water and that's it. Any suggestions? It's for my grandma's birthday and it's orange and poppy seed AND chocolate chip. So there'll be different flavor on each layer.

Thanks ladies!

I would of thought the same thing, dense and heavy from a muffin mix. could you not do muffins?? and do each one the different flavour with a different decoration? you could turn them into a 'muffin bouquet' or something ?

Hey Cupcakeshoppe lady! icon_smile.gif Here is a link that makes a cake from a muffin mix: I would think though that maybe adding another egg or two plus some oil would make it more "cakey." What do you think? Here is a recipe from Betty Crocker that DOES add extra eggs and oil. They have a few of them in their recipe section. Just type "muffin mix cake" in the search. Hope this helps! icon_smile.gif

oh yay! Thanks for that link. I'll check it out. Although I'm warming up to the idea of a cupcake bouquet too. icon_biggrin.gif
