Yes, I've tried it. It worked and tasted just fine.

It's all I use (unless I need a flavor they don't have). They only carry chocolate, white and yellow. I also use their powdered sugar(don't even have to sift it) , marshmallows (for MM fondant) shortening, sugar, flour, eggs, sour cream, butter, oil, vanilla and pudding to make my cakes. Everyone says they are wonderful. I have been an Aldi shopper for over 30 years and their quality is great. And the prices can't be beat.

I bought cake mixes from Aldi for one wedding cake and I returned every one of them. They were horrible and it made my experience absolutely stressful and horrible. They were nice about it, and took back every single mix, even the boxes that I had used - they refunded me every penny. I would like to try them again with some docotored cake mix recipes possibly, but won't be doing it on a customer cake until I get it exactly right. I love Aldi, and shop there all the time - their dairy and eggs are perfectly equal to other stores, I haven't tried marshmallows or shortening yet, but have a project for the weekend with RKT and may try their krispies and marshmallows since it is for family.....

langranny - do you use the directions on the box for the cake or do you use totally different ingredients? Any information would be welcomed as I would love to be able to use the mixes.

Hello everyone.

I am not familiar with Aldi, where do you buy them from?

I use Aldi cake mixes among other things. I love their stuff. Great prices and fantastic quality.

I do not follow the recipe on the box for ANY cake mix. But I have family members that do and they turn out fine.

I ONLY go to ALDI for my cake making ingredients! (unless of course I am in a pinch and have to go to the chain grocery stores, which kills me to pay the price) I use their box mixes as a base for my cakes and then add additional flour, sugar ...etc. I have always had raving reviews that my cakes were excellent and very moist.

I also use their mm, shortening, eggs, butter, chocolate chips for my fondant and fillings. I highly recommend Aldi to anyone.

For those of you that aren't familiar, check out their website ... www.aldi.com. They are all over the world!

Plus in the instance that you have a bad experience they do cover their products 100%!!

Thanks for posting the question - I too shop at Aldi's and have been curous about their cake mix.

I don't like the cake mixes from Aldi. I thought them fairly tastless and had a hard time icing the cake.

I agree that the staple stuff from Aldi is fine, milk, eggs, flour, sugar etc are all fine.

I almost always make the WASC cake. I really like Aldi products better than the name brands. Tonight I made some cupcakes with a Betty Crocker mix that I made last time with the Aldi mix. The Aldi batch tasted better. I used the WASC recipe.

I used their white cake mix to make the last two wedding cakes. The only trouble is that during wedding season, it's hard to find. When I asked the clerk why they were out she said it was because cake decorators came in and bought all the white mix...

I too buy all my basics at Aldi's - per pound, things like flour, sugar and powdered sugar are even cheaper than Sam's Club. Unfortunately some "basics" like corn syrup are only sold seasonally for holiday baking.

For those who may not know this, Aldi owns the Trader Joe grocery store chain.

Aldi's lover here too!!!

Love Aldi's too...but I might mention their chocolate chips are gross thumbsdown.gif

Use most Aldi product and have been pleased with everything (including cake mix).  Today I used  an Aldi Angel Food and it turned out fine.  I was bakig extra for our church festival, so I decided to bake an Aldi Chocolate Layer Cake which looked beautiful when I took it out ot the oven.  Five minutes later it started to shrink.  It was in a nine inch pan but soon became an eight inch cake and fell flat.

 

Very disappointing!!!!!!!!! icon_sad.gif icon_sad.gif

I love Aldi Chocolate Chips!  And I use a TON of them.  I think I've bought them by the case, actually.

mnurlife Posted 23 Mar 2014 , 9:15pm

I like Aldi's product's too. I used their chocolate chips for my fudge and it didn't turn out very well. They were "leaking" grease.

I normally never use anything but DH, but recently I was in a pinch and while in Aldi for some other things, I bought white cake mixes.  They were absolutely delicious.  The cake had a really fine crumb and a very delicate flavor - I actually think it was the best white cake mix I've ever tried.  Can't speak for the other flavors as I've not tried them yet.  I buy their eggs, butter, real vanilla, marshmallows, krispy rice cereal, and flour.  I only use Baker's and Chefs powdered sugar from Sam's Club - absolutely NO GRIT at all.
