Tips

How to make your cake super moist

How to make your cake super moist

When you blend your Duncan Hines Cake Mix with eggs and vegetable oil replace the water with milk, it makes your cake very moist and delicious.


No Crumbs in Frosting

No Crumbs in Frosting

After cakes come out of the oven, let them cool for about 15 to 20 minutes or until they are slightly warm to the touch. Remove them from the pans. Any modifications that are needed, do at that time (cut off domed top of cake). Wrap each cake in foil, and place in the freezer overnight (make sure they are on flat surface). The next day have frosting and utinsels ready before taking the cakes out of the freezer. Immediately frost the cakes with a thin layer of frosting to keep the crumbs from making an appearance. Once that is done you can take your time with the final frosting and decorating. Serve at least one hour after frosting.
