I make WASC(white almond sour cream cake) for all my cakes. The recipe can be found on this site. Also love these variations of the recipe too. https://docs.google.com/Doc?id=df4f9hbq_46cs9f28fs

For my cupcakes I just use the lowfat recipe on the back of Duncan Hines cake mix box! icon_smile.gif very moist cupcakes!!!

I find that if you are gonna use a boxed cake than DH is the best, I think that if it is crumbling than either you need to adjust your temp of oven or not cook it to so long. It sounds like it is being overcooked! HTH

I agree with the others. Sounds like you are overbaking. Bake your cake at the recommended temperature but shorten the baking time by 10-15 minutes in order to check to see if the cake is done. Insert a toothpick in the middle of the cake and if anything at all comes out on it then keep baking. If it's batter, bake for another 10 and recheck. If it's just some crumbs, do 5 minute intervals.

Also buy an oven thermometer. Your oven might be baking hot.

Yes, the lower fat recipe is very moist, but so is the WASC and the 3D durable cake for carving.(NOT low fat lol) I would bake at 325, for a little longer, but do not over bake. Then I cool my cakes for about 10/15 mins. wrap them in wax paper, saran wrap, and foil and stick them in the freezer to lock in the moisture.
