Is it too cheap to make a wedding cake using a cake mix?
I always use a doctored cake mix, and I have always had wonderful reviews. I just use the whole egg, use buttermilk instead of water, and add a little vanilla. Everyone seems to love it.
Not if that's what you use, it is tried and true for you and the client loves the flavor.
I am a mix baker but have developed my own recipes for doctoring up a mix to make it a bit more interesting. I'm learning to bake cakes from scratch but I wouldn't dare try anything that important because I haven't done it enough to feel confident enough-yet!
Been using cake mixes for over 25 years. People who are self-professed cake haters tell me that mine are the only cakes they will eat. To quote what a fellow CC'er said on a similar post: I see no reason to change now.
I wouldn't call it "cheap" to use a mix. It's a personal preference of what works for you. You will find die-hard scratch bakers and die-hard mix bakers on here. Lots of experiences to pull from to help you find what works best for you and your clients.
