The only way my 20 qt. mixer does the job I want with cake mixes is if I sift the mixes first. I have a large hand-held "turn the crank" sifter, but it's slow-going and tiring. Surely there's a better option short of one of those major attachments that fit on the front of the mixer! What works for you?

I never sift anything. Do you add your liquids before you add your cake mix? I find this works well.

I sift my dry ingredients using a wire mesh strainer. It works beautifully. I also mix liquid ingredients first before adding the dry. It make for a smoother batter.
