I use doctored cake mixes, and I have never had a problem. I use the WASC repice and the chocolate version and get rave reviews. I have heard that just a straight box mix made according to the directions is pretty fluffy, and can squish under fondant. HTH

I use the WASC and versions of it. It is more dense and holds up well.
