How to Make Perfect Cakes from a Boxed Cake Mix


This week, I am answering all of your questions about how I make boxed cakes taste like your favorite bakery cake! My “cake mix magic method” is versatile, fail-proof, and simple to follow. 

Episode At A Glance:

While many of us love the taste of homemade cakes, few of us have the time to make them from scratch. For years now, I have been formulating my “cake mix magic method” to turn store-bought mixes into fabulous homemade treats. My method of “doctoring” is basically the same for every cake mix, with a few tweaks based on the flavor of the cake. This week on the SavvyCast, I share my tried-and-true formula, my favorite add-ins for different mixes, and the best ways to glaze your cakes.
