Tips

I followed the suggestions using 2 eggs and 2 tablespoons of oil. I mixed all the wet ingredients first then the cake mix. Turned out great! I also used a cupcake pan, sprayed with non stick spray and just dropped a teaspoonful in. Mashed LIGHTLY down and baked at 325 for 8-10 mins. No need to chill at all! They came out perfectly round with slightly crisp edges but soft yummy middle. The next time I make, I will try sifting the mix first. Had a lot of stirring to break up the balls of dry mix

I use only Duncan Hines cake mixes for cakes that I decorate! A useful tip for when you are baking larger cakes so that the whole cake gets done at the same time. I use a rose tip nail (used in cake decorating) and place it in the middle of the batter. That way it attracts the heat from the cake pan as well as the nail and the whole cake bakes to doneness at the same time.
