Im just curious how people go about different cake flavours?

For instance, do you make a basic cake mix then add a certain flavour to it? or do you purchase a flavoured cake mix?

Just trying to think of ways of getting different flavoured cakes to offer other than vanilla and chocolate.

It depends on what you want to do. I doctor cake mixes and only buy 6flavors. White, yellow, devils food, spice, banana and red velvet. Every cake that goes out that is not scratch is doctored, even the banana and red velvet.

Experiment using different ingredients such as adding coconut milk and coconut to white cake, add melted chocolate, cocoa, or chocolate syrup to the devils food to make a richer chocolate cake. Add pineapple and use the juice instead of the water to make pineapple cake. Its what you want to make, and go from there. Cake mixes are pretty resilient to additions.
