Can anybody tell me what is a 'cake mix' please? I really want to try WASC recipe in the following link that i heard so much about it in this forum but we don't use cake mixes where I live icon_sad.gif

What can I do instead of using a cake mix? Please help...

Wow! Thank you sooooo much Emma37!

Inorder to prepare the WASC recipe I have to make this cake mix recipe that will be equal to 2 boxes of cake mix. Can you please also tell me whats the measure of 2 boxes of cake mix in the recipe of WASC?

oh great question shepsit because I was also really keen to try this, but didn't know if the cake mix i could access would be the same!! Where abouts are you from?? I'm in Aust, you?

I'm from Turkiye (Turkey) lollyponpon.

I hope we can learn the size of the boxes or the amount of their ingredients in the recipe, then we can manage to make our own cake mix, hopefully icon_smile.gif

I never used any cake mix, i think we dont have it in here but even if I can find it, i really don't prefer to use any cake mix, I believe its always better to make it from the scratch and know what u r eating icon_smile.gif

ohhh, yes maybe it is a "Western world" type of thing... many of the cake mixes on here we can't get in Aust. We have cake mixes, but lots of them are differnt to the USA and nowhere near as much variety!! even on that note, the advantage of scratch baking is that i can work out a recipe, without the need for a special "base" that i cannot buy icon_sad.gif
anyway, nice to meet u and happy caking!!
