Can this be done , I have a bride that is getting a free cake. "family" I know I know . Can I mix a box cake with a scratch mix to get more for my money ? I know it sounds bad but like I said its a free cake . I still want it to taste like a scratch cake because our family is a family of very good bakers and they can tell the difference.

I've used a recipe that starts with a box mix, then you add more ingredients to give you a full 7 cups of batter. So it would be a combination, of sorts, of a box and scratch. I can't see where it wouldn't work!

Everything you ever wanted to know about making your 1st tiered cake:

The above link has the expanded flavors WASC recipe. Using DH white cake mixes, a full recipe yields a tad over 14 cups of batter which is great for larger or multiple pans.

Use WASC, you start w/ a box & end up w/ a dense moist cake!
