Hi Everyone,

I'm new to this forum, and I would like to attempt to bake the Wilton stand-up house cake for my clinic class on Saturday (9 of the interns are graduating, and Saturday will be their last day). On the instructions, it mentions some sort of pudding cake mix. Can I use regular box cake mix for this? I have never bake any sort of stand up cake or 3-D cake, so I would like any and all advice you all can give. Please speak to me as if I've never baked before--my skills are strictly beginner, although, I seem to have an odd gift for decorating, which is why I'm attempting this.

thank you very much!

The instructions are referring to either Betty Crocker or Pillsbury's pudding added cake mix formula....or regular cake mix. (Of the major brands, only Duncan Hines doesn't have pudding in their cake mix formula.)

Thank you! Also, thank you SO much. Every time I tried to do a search on the subject, it would come back empty. I need to figure out how to use the search on here. I must be doing something wrong because I can never seem to find anything aside from pictures :-/

Thank you heaps again!
