absolutely! why not? There are other posts about cake mixes on here and what advice people have to make the cake more dense and easier to cut.

I do! I use Duncan Hines with water, eggs, sour cream and pudding mix. Chocolate and Vanilla works especially well. I find both bake up nice and dense for carving.
