Any brands of delicious cake premix to recommend?....I would like to use it to make for carving cakes and for any celebration cakes such as wedding cakes.

Are you asking about box mixes?

I haven't found any premade box mixes to use by themselves that stand up to wedding cake weight or carved cakes. Try WASC recipe, which is pretty close to already premade.

What is wedding cake weight? Nothing of the cake supports any thing. Support comes from the support system, not the cake.

Thanks for the replies.

I'm looking for premix which is not found in thesupermarket aisles but premix that professional bakers uses. I want to make cakes firm enough to carve. My home made madeira cake never comes out perfect...unlike the premix madeira cake, which tasted light and soft but still able to carve.

At the Atlantic City Bakery Show two years ago I tasted the Duncan Hines bulk cake mix. It was really quite good - nice texture and good enough for carving.

Although I liked the cake quite a lot, I enjoy the process of scratch baking so I did not pursue it.
