For a long time I would use the doctored cake mix recipe 

1 cake mix (Duncan Hines) , 1-small box pudding, 3/4 cup milk, 3/4 cup oil, 4 eggs 

it was strong enough to cover with fondant and most importantly it tasted great but for the last year I’ve noticed that it’s not as dense anymore it would also collapse when I cover with fondant. Has anyone else noticed this problem? Any suggestions on what I can do to save this?

Seems the makers of mixes might be playing with them again:(   Have you tried the *original*WASC recipe?   It still works well even with the reduced size started a couple of years ago

kakeladi's  *Original* WASC Recipe is the only doctored cake mix I use and I have had no issues with it.
