I am looking for tips to doctor up a chocolate cake mix so it is more firm and dense for decorating and stacking. Thanks for any suggestions!
I usually add 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 8 oz cream cheese, an extra egg, and a stick of melted butter instead of the oil. I also freeze it overnight. It makes a really nice, dense, tasty cake.
If I add cream cheese will the cake need to be refrigerated? Thanks!
I don't refrigerate it. I have added the cream cheese in place of the sour cream like in the cake mix extender recipe or the WASC recipe. I stumbled upon it one time when I was trying to doctor up an Aldi's cake mix and ran out of sour cream so I used cream cheese.
