I tried Rhonda's Ultimate MMF back in June when it was hot and humid and I had a really rough time with it. It was very crumbly and SO hard to roll out. Am thinking it was a heat/humidity issue. Need MMF for two cakes on Friday, is there another super popular recipe that will work well in high heat/humidity?Thx!
does it matter? when I read through the recipe thread, there didn't seem to be a definitive answer. i'm going to use the oreo filling in a kids bday cake this weekend.........thanks!
Thanks for the info............just needed some reassurance
Thanks, very helpful info. The extender recipe I have says it adds an extra 1/2box to the 18.25oz box size.
I have two cakes due on Saturday and would like to have one 100% decorated Friday night and the other, 90% done. One cake will be a 9x13 (which I'll have to bake 2 layers and I only have 1 pan (and one oven)), the other will be two tiers, 1 6" tier and 1 9" tier.

I'm making a 9x13, 6" and 9".Thanks!
If you use boxed mix, what's your favorite brand and why do you prefer it over others?
Gotcha. I read online somewhere, that when making a cupcake cake, it's best to use warm cupcakes when putting together the design as when they are warm, they are easier to push together.........
If I bake the cupcakes (about 40) and then (while still warm) cluster them together in the shape of the "cake", about how long after that would I want to wait for them to cool so I can frost/decorate them?Thanks!
Thanks, that's great to know!
