I am making a double layer 11x15 of white cake and doing the extended mix. I usually do scratch cakes, will I have enough if I just have two boxes? One batch doesn't look like it will fill the pan enough but I have not put it in yet. I was wondering if I can do a third mix of extended yellow and mix half of it with each of the white batches. The white has a slight yellow color from the eggs, could I blame the color on eggs? icon_biggrin.gif TIA!

Wilton says you need 22 cups of batter. You get 15-16 cups of batter out of two cake mixes that are extended so three boxes should be about perfect.

I googled Zaxapoaphobia and I couldn't find anything on it.

Thank you K8--what about the yellow mix, do you think it will fly mixed in with the white?

My white cakes always have an ivory tint because I use whole eggs. - I would think if 1 is mixed with two whites, it won't be "that" bad. Yes, blame it on the fact that you use REAL EGGS and BUTTER (which I do)... that always works for me. (wink)

Now I am thinking about the fact that yellow cake seems to be a bit softer than white. It may affect the density of the cake. But I'm just wild enough to go for it.

Thank you tryingcake, you inspired me to go for it, lol. The texture is a bit odd, hmm, lol, I will havet to cut a wee piece to test it, otherwise it looks good. I put some of the Wilton white-white stuff for the icing, worked well, haha!

You add ingredients to a box mix to achieve one and 1/2 mixes. icon_smile.gif

Here is a wilton thread with several extender recipes:

I love that white-white. I even used it in Spackle one time. I was moving from an apartment and was spakling those tiny holes from hanging pics. In one room the spackling was a shade darker. I added the white-white and it was perfect. I was still living there three weeks later and it was still perfect. I don't know if it lasted forever or not, but it lasted those three weeks.

Funny, huh?

Maybe white-white is the MacGuyver of the baking world!

The cupcakes are good! They look a bit odd and are very spongey but not in a chewy or dry way, they're still sweet and moist! Might have a new concoction! thumbs_up.gif
