How to change the texture of your cakes

How to change the texture of your cakes

After your cake has cooled five minutes in the pan, CAREFULLY place a hand towel on top of the cake and press GENTLY until the center is level with the sides of the cake. Knocking the air out, changes the texture of the box mix enough that everyone will think you have made a cake from scratch.

I've been a fan of this product and have successfully baked many batches. The one I baked tonight is almost inedible. I would like to be able to contact Duncan Hines with my concern, but their website doesn't permit comments or criticism, only praise. Perhaps one of their unpaid corporate interns will notice this post and alert someone that will have the integrity to respond. Until then, I'm done with Duncan.
