I'm not sure if this is a disaster yet but I'm not sure where else it would fall under.. Anyways I'm baking a strawberry cake; add the ingredients in the mixing bow and I don't know how I read the box wrong but I put in 1 cup of oil instead of 2/3 (using 2 box mixes so I doubled it)
Is this going to be OK? has anyone done anything like this or have any thoughts? Will it screw the taste up? This sucks lol
Not sure but just cut a little plug out after it cools and taste it.
Well, I always put 1/2 of oil to each box... even if it calls for less oil. I always get a very moist cake and love it... If i plan to carve it in some way, I make sure to freeze the cake a couple of hours.
So if your are baking 2 mixes, I think you'll be fine.
It's only 1/3 cup more oil. You should be fine.
When I do a butter cake I awlays add extra butter for a moister cake and never have a problem.
It will make it just a bit moister. I also add a touch extra oil. It won't change the tastes or consistency since it wasn't a huge amount extra.
Ha ha ha. I am also baking a strawberry cake this morning and did the EXACT same thing. Mine was butter so I just scoopped a little out.
So funny...Are you blonde too!?!?!?!?
you will definately be fine!!!! i would agree with lilica if you are going to carve make sure to freeze it for a while!!! good luck!!!!!!
Those box cakes are resilient little beasts lol Thats why I love them so much. I cant tell you all the things I have done to them, and have never had one turn out bad.
You guys are the best!! Thanks soo much! I am happy to report that everything came out A-OK! I would have hated to bake another batch.
luelue1971 - hahah that's soo funny we did the same thing, at least yours was easier to take out! I admit I am a blonde to haha
