Sure does. There are a whole variety of them out there! icon_smile.gif

How about using the recipe as an extender or would that make the cake mix lose its flavor since I'm not adding the extract? Do I need necessarily need vanilla extract if I'm using BC french vanilla and just put in the strawberry extract? Would the flavors clash?

Has anyone tried reducing the amount of sugar used in the recipe? It just seems like a lot of sugar to me...feel like it might be too sweet. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. icon_smile.gif

I find the recipe very sweet, too. Anyone use half the sugar or some other amount less than one cup?

Can anyone tell me what the weight of a cake mix is? I ask cause I bought a cake mix that is 2 flavors (for cupcakes) and is 590 grams combined and I wanted to make it into a variation of WASC.

Thanks!

Cupcakeshoppe lady, I just pulled one off my shelf and it says: 18.25 oz OR 1 lb 2.25 oz OR 517 grams. They probably vary a bit from brand to brand, but this would be good to go by. Hope this helps! icon_smile.gif

We don't follow the instructions on the box right?
When is the flavoring added in?
Which one is normally cheaper, sour cream or yogurt?
I can use any kind of yogurt except for fat free right?
How about Greek yogurt?
Do I measure the sour cream/yogurt in a dry measuring cup or does it already say on the package?

I tried it with reducing the sugar and it turned out just fine. icon_smile.gif

I realize these are VERY OLD ?s but I guess I'm just now seeing them and any new people reading this will get the benniffit of the answers :)

 

1) No you do not follow the instruction the the cake mix box but use the instruction in the recipe.

2) flavoring is not used in the batter.  I only use it in the icing.

3) I don't know which is cheaper and it will vary according to where you live.  Check out your local markets.

4) I have used fat free.  5) As for Greek, it is thicker than 'normal' yogurt but I don't think it will effect the recipe.  To me it is much more 'sour' so it might help cut the    

  sweetness some for those who find the recipe as stated too sweet.

6) I do not measure.  I use a whole carton as the size is stated on each carton of yogurt or s.c.

Lately I've been playing around with the recipe a bit and have reduced the sugar so far by 1/3 cup.

I'm extremely new at all this other then just having fun at my house for family and friends. I have a friend's birthday next month I'm doing a cake for and was going to try something new based on this recipe. Unfortunately she has a milk allergy so I can't use sour cream or yogurt. I have a list of cake mixes I can use but was wondering if there was any other substitute for the milk product. 

 

 

By the way totally loving this site, I have learned so much from all of you!!

I'm sorry to say I know of no subs for sour cream - unless there is a soy type of product that might be sold.  Since I have no need for such a product I'm not familar with them.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."
