I have seen more than one person post this question on different threads but no one really gave a straight answer. So here goes my question - I am wanting to try to enhance a box mix as I have been having trouble with my fav scratch chocolate recipe as of late and don't want to take any chances this week. I have Pillsbury Moist Supreme Devil's Food Cake with the pudding in the mix. Anyone have any experience with this brand and which enhancer recipe I should use? It will be a 3 tier wedding cake with the top and bottom to be Devil' Food. I have not used a box mix since I was a teen and usually bake everything from scratch. I have see many posts from those who swear by the reliability of a doctored mix and would appreciate any info please.icon_smile.gif Thank you in advance

That's the brand I use.  I make the AMAZING Chocolate WASC cake found in the recipes here, except I also add a box of instant chocolate fudge pudding.  It's very good!!

Thank you flourgirlz, I wasn't sure if adding more pudding to this brand would ruin it.

I just baked a chocolate cake for my boyfriend's birthday and I added a box of instant pudding, it was delicious! His mom (who is a chef) even complemented me on the cake.
