I love making cakes from scratch because I know there are no preservatives added and also I can adjust the ingredients to our taste. Sometimes, I feel like the a ready to go cake mix helps with the baking a cake or cookies as it cuts down on time.

Also, it’s a great gift giving idea with instructions on adding the wet ingredients. Friends always loved it when I can gave them homemade cake mixes.

I’m giving the wet ingredients to make the cake as well. To make a cake, blend all the wet ingredients really well until combined and add the cake mix. mix until just combined. Pour the batter in cake pans and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
