Hi, my name is Lisa. I'm new to the group. Could anyone tell me if it's possible and with good results to mix a boxed cake mix with a scratch cake? Or am I asking for trouble?Thanks you inadvance for any support on this. I'm looking forward to interacting on this forum. I've been following it for some time now.

id say not really, theres too much going on. you might as well just do one or the other.
there are a lot of good scratch recipes on here. theres also recipes for modifying a box mix, wasc is a popular one.
mixes are good on their own too, but they might not hold up to things like carving, they are a bit soft.

Try the cake mix extender recipe or the white almond sour cream cake recipe both from this site. They both start with box mixes and and add different amounts of flour/sugar etc. I use the cake mix extender recipe for my cupcakes and everyone loves them, plus it gives me about 29-30 cupcakes per recipe. Good luck!

if you post a topic, if you go to view it, down the bottom left after the post is a 'watch this topic for replies' button, which helps you to keep track of things. also make sure your setting let you know when replies are posted too. at least, i think its in there, lol.
