i am new to decorating cakes and i just had a question i am making a butterscotch pudding cake for my mom for mothers day and i needed to know if i can still decorate it or if it would taste bad if i did. the recipe calls for
1 (3 3/4 oz) pkg butterscotch pudding
2 cups of milk
1 yellow cake mix
1 pkg butterscotch morsels
1/2 cup chopped nuts

prepare pudding w/ milk as directed on pkg (let cool) stir into cake mix and blend well pour in 13x9 pan sprinkle w/ butterscotch morsels and chopped nuts and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 min.
would it still be possible to decorate a cake after that or does anyone know a butterscotch cake recipe that i could Still decorate. any ideas would be so much appreciated thank you so much!

Why would you not be able to decorate it? Were you thinking of doing buttercream icing on the outside of the cake? Fondant?

Why would it taste bad if decorated?

That sounds like an odd recipe to me.

What I would do is take your cake mix, and make it according to the directions on the box, adding in an extra egg, and the powder butterscotch pudding mix. You can think mix in your morsels and nuts and bake.

It sounds like its meant to be very rich, a "stand alone" type of cake.....I don't know if it would taste good iced, maybe you should try it and see how it turns out? Sounds almost brownie-ish....

I dosn't sound mutch diffrent than adding chocolate chips to a cake mix. Add the butterscotch chips to the dry mix before adding wet ingreadeancs, That will help coat the chips and help keep them suspended instead of sinking to the bottom...Sounds yummy Good Luck

1 cake mix
1 c flour
1 c sugar
1 pkg butterscotch pudding mix (dry)
2/3 c any type of caramel flavored liquid coffee creamer
2/3 c water
1 c sour cream
5 egg whites
2 tbls oil
8 oz melted butterscotch chips

Combine dry. Add all except melted chips. Temper melted chips by stirring in a bit of batter before mixing into rest of cake batter. Bake at 325 45 - 60 mins (depends on sizes of pans and depth of batter - could even be longer). Recipe can be doubled - this one makes two 7" rounds.

so do you think i could just add butterscotch chips to a yellow cake mix and then decorate it in buttercream and fondant? or would that not give a very good flavor? i dont want the cake to be a overly sweet cake but i do want to decorate it for my mom and she said butterscotch is her favorite cake

The chips will sink even if you coat with flour because they have a lower melting point than regular choco chips - you'll end up with a gooey mess at the bottom of your pans.

You can make a yellow cake according to pkg directions and just add butterscotch pudding mix and 6 oz of melted butterscotch chips to it, plus an extra egg.
