Anybody add extenders to the pink or blue velvet boxed mixes by DH?  I just assumed it would be identical to a white mix (WASC). However when looking at the back of the box (after I had bought them) I see that DH instructions say to add 2/3 Cup water, 3 eggs & 1 stick butter. Love the WASC & was hoping to adapt in same way. (4 eggs, sour cream, almond flavor etc....) Thanks!!!

I'm just going to sub in much the same as wasc recipe. Since I know there is not a smidge of chocolate in the 'pink' mix. We'll see how this works out. Everyone must be 'stumped.

Don't know if anyone wants outcome of experimentation, but here is what I've decided to do; after baking usual wasc & adding a little red food color to get a nice shade of pink, this was the winner with "quality control" people here at my house.  (*family : ))  The Pink Velvet by DH might be better with some other things added, but trying to use same things as wasc to transform it into a good tasting w/a good crumb was a failure.  It was tough, too dense & tasted rather blah. Sticking with the tried & true. :cake:
