even more moist cake

when i use a cake mix, i add a little bit of extra water to it and it turns out extra moist. i found out how to do it by accidentally adding to much water, and it turned out better than the other cake i did! (i added extra to a chocolate and the vanilla cake i was making didn't have extra water)

Cake Mix Cookies

Cake Mix Cookies

I have been using the Lemon and Orange cake mixes to make cookies. When baking the lemon cookies, I add a little lemon juice (freshly squeezed) to replace some of the oil, as well as lemon zest. I also add lemon zest to the frosting (confectioners sugar and lemon juice). I just tried the same idea with orange cookies, adding a little orange juice (freshly squeezed) to replace some of the oil, as well as orange zest. With these, I used vanilla frosting and added orange juice and orange zest.


Place a design on a frosted cake.

Place a design on a frosted cake.

Lightly trace a design onto a piece of waxed paper. Using a safety pin, prick a small hole on top of a piece of corrugated cardboard. Place the pattern over the hole in the cardboard pricking the pattern outlines with the pin down through the hole in the cardboard. Move the pattern along the hole and continue pricking holes every couple of millimeters until all outlines are covered with holes. You will notice that the underside of the wax paper now has ridges that will leave the imprint of the pattern on your cake. After smoothly frosting a cake with buttercream icing, let the cake sit until the icing has crusted and you can touch it without any frosting sticking to you. This works best when the air is dry. It will not work well on humid days. Very gently lay the pattern, ridge side down, on the cake. With a very gentle motion, quickly and lightly run your finger over the entire design. Immediately, gently lift the wax paper and you will have your design now imprinted on top of your cake. Decorate as desired.
