Pleeeaaaase. You think you are better people because you are making a cake from scratch instead of the box mix. You are not. Your mom made it from a box! Some people make it from a box, some people make it from scratch. It's the same **** made of flower and sugar. Chemicals or or not, cake is bad for you. Smart people make it from a box, because it's easier. If you have no life, knock yourselves out, and make it from scratch. You want to believe you are better than the rest of the millions of others, but you are not. Same thing. Get over yourselves. This discussion is useless. Get a life.
Pleeeeeease you are trying to say you're better because you bake from a box, which, fyi, my mother never did. Actually she never baked a cake in her life, but my dear grandmother took the utmost pride in baking me a beautiful cake from scratch for my birthday every year, a skill she was glad to pass on to me.
Although I've lived in the US for almost 7 years and will become an American myself next year, I have to say that the state of food in this country is shocking. The jokes people make outside of this country about how fake our food is are almost all true sadly. Most people here probably did grow up eating box cake, but that doesn't mean they can't appreciate a well made scratch cake.
