Six Cakes with a Mix Magic
Cake mixes are the perfect answer to busy people who want homemade taste. If you’re looking for new flavor to a regular cake mix, the following recipes will do just that. Just follow the recipe on the cake mix box but substitute ingredients where indicated. Each cake mix will make 2 8-inch round cakes, one 9 x 13 rectangle cake or 24 cupcakes.
