How To Make A Box Cake Taste Like It Came From A Bakery


  1. Add one more egg to the mix, or add 2 more if you want it even richer.
  2. Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount.
  3. Use milk instead of water.
  4. Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla.
  5. Fill cups 3/4 full.
  6. Preheat oven to 350F but reduce to 325F when inserting cake or cupcakes and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. 
  7. For chocolate cake mix: Add the amount of water the recipe calls for but use HOT water. It makes it taste more chocolate.
  8. Sprinkling the top with SUGAR not only gives it a sweet crunchy texture but the weight of the sugar prevents the cake from rising too much while it bakes.
  9. Make Extra LAYERS- Cut each round of cake in half to create more layers creating an equal cake-to-frosting ratio! More frosting will create extra moistness throughout the cake. 
  10. Used coffee for the water! There wasn’t any coffee flavor but somehow it enhanced the chocolate flavor and made it so moist!
