This extender does wonders for a cake mix. I have always loved the convience of mixes, but was always dissappointed with the size of the cake. Well, this weekend I tried this on a layer cake, and no one would have ever guessed it was a mix. The only change I made was to sub apple sauce for the oil. Watching that fat you know. Anyway, thanks again. This is definately a 5 star tip.

This is definitely a "Good Thing" I tried it with a devil's food cake. I did however add 1 heaping tsp. of cocoa to make sure it did not diminish the flavor of the mix. I also added all dry ingredients with dry cake and then all liquids. Thanks:>

This is perfect. I used a red velvet cake mix and added all the dry ingredients together, then the wet ones. I baked it for 50 minutes in a dark 13x9 pan. The cake was *huge* and very moist, and adding this mix probably cost an extra 20 cents, if that. Great texture and the flavor was unchanged. I'll use this every time I make a cake from a mix. Thanks Laurie!
