Some years back I ran into a excellent website that had multiple recipes to convert box cakes into professional/home made, but lost it (computer glich lol). I am into making cakes now and find that making from scratch is cumbersome. Does any one have resources to make any/multiple types of cakes from box taste like professional/home made...?

there's a popular formula called wasc you might want to look up--


and i think i get what you mean but when you say, " taste like professional/home made"


those seem to be opposing thoughts--mutually exclusive as the saying goes--


all the different bakers everywhere use mixes and recipes some use both--


i guess what i'm trying to say is there is no one particular "professional/home" made taste--

and when i make a wasc cake--i use self rising flour and if the wasc recipe calls for baking soda, baking powder or salt i eliminate those and just use the self rising flour--those ingredients are covered in there already--rises better imo--easier too--


happy baking

even if it's only overnight, I freeze them.  The cake just has a better texture. don't know why.
