Does anyone know if that works with any flavor cake mix? I would think so but want to be sure. I like her recipe because it carves sooo well.

you mention that you prefer betty crocker mix. your recipe states to use a mix with out pudding added. in my part of canada the betty crocker mixes have pudding added to them, not sure about any where else. do you think it will be ok to still use the betty crocker or should i try a brand w/o the pudding added to it.

they do?

I was referring to Pillsbury mostly. Bc should work fine.

sugarshack do you still add the pudding with the bc mixes even though it says it has pudding in the mix?
also, where do I get the wedding bouquet flavoring for your buttercream...
