I am the family baker- I bake for everyone's birthdays and other events. I even sell cupcakes/cakes to local people. My secret is Duncan Hines cake mix! I always use their cake mix but doctor the ingredients- I always add 1 extra egg, milk instead of water, and melted butter instead of oil. Oh and I add a box of instant pudding in the same flavor as cake mix. Time after time everyone gobbles the cake up and raves about how awesome it tastes! I only trust Duncan Hines for that!
