the cake mix that is available at Bulk Barn? Just wondering if it is more cost effective to buy it in bulk verus store box mix?
Was it easy to use? How did it taste compared to box mix (DH, BC).

Any info would be great.

Traditionally the bulk mixes are very dry....Most of the grocery stores here use bulk mixes and we all know what they taste like...having said that....I use Betty Crocker all the time.I started using them many years ago and that's what I like.Many people will dispute the box verses scratch method but that is a different topic for another thread.I buy my mixes on sale when they are 10 for $10.00 or 2 for $3.00...I get the grocery manager to order me 4 or 5 cases at a time.I don't know what the bulk bag would be in price but if it is anything like the prices in the past 3 years which is going up...they probably aren't that cheap anymore and by the time you add the water,oil the bulk may not be such a good deal.

On the same topic, I was thinking of ordering the bulk mix from Dawn Foods. Do you think it would be the same as the Bulk Barn mix? I'm super happy with DH so I'm afraid to buy a 50lb bag of something that will end up being dry! TIH

Hmmm don't know. I didn't even realize they carried bulk cake mixes. I'm interested to find out too.
I use betty crocker and if lucky can find it on sale for 1.00 and that's when i stock up.

Some of my students have used the BB mix and really like it. It's different from box mixes in that you apparently only add water.

Like Kiddiekakes I stock up on box mixes when they go on sale for $1.00 each.

Great question...I was wondering the exact same thing. Unfortunately you can only get 2 different kinds of mix - white or chocolate. I was thinking of buying a small quantity and trying a cake out - family and co-workers are always willing to try something for me!
