I want to try a new doctored recipie tonight. Thought I had white mix, but I don't. I do have Pillsbury Funfetti. Could I use the mix and hold the confetti? Is is the same as white mix, or do you think it's flavored differently? thanks

Hope this isn't too late......but go ahead. That flavor is nothing more than white cake mix w/'sprinkles' added. Withholding the packette of sprinkles will be the same as a white cake mix.

I use to do it when I taught decorating and used the sprinkles for decorating the outside of the cake.

There was no problem with the taste.

I don't know about your mix, but the last one I used already had them encorporated, not in a packet anymore. but it is a white mix

Well then I guess its been a while. I used Betty Crocker funfetti cake mix. Guess you would have to sift thru. Uugghh!! to much work for me.

I tried it once and gave up! There was once a time when the sprinkles were in a separate packet, but that is not true anymore. I once tried putting the cake mix through a sifter and it wasn't happening for me! I ended up giving up. My FAVORITE white cake mix is Pillsbury. I don't think Funfetti TASTES different, but it certainly LOOKS different!

I have to say I used the pillsbury funfetti with the WASC recipe and it was awful. The cake got all thick and doughy. NEver have I had that before or since. So now I use regular WASC and just add jimmies to it.

That way is nice anyway because you can tailor the jimmies to meet your color scheme...

Way too much work to sift it out though....
