great recipes, but missing some good ones...
am 9. Juni 2000
This book has a multitude of cake mix cakes -- the Banana and Cannoli cakes sound particularly yummy. The author also covers coffee cakes, those really down home favorites (such as Pig Pickin Cake, made with mandarin oranges and pistachio pudding in the frosting), and quite a few yummy chocolate cakes including Peppermint, Almond, and Mississippi Mud. She also DOES include basic yellow and white cakes at the end of the book (telling you to add a full stick of butter and whole eggs and milk). And she also specifically tells you which cakes to use "pudding in the mix" mixes for and which ones not to (pudding in the mix tends to make the cake very wet) and I feel this is easy to comply with since both types of mixes are available at the store.
However, the book does miss some yummy-sounding cake mix recipes that I've found such as Jello Poke Cake, Coconut Poke Cake (made by pouring condensed milk & cream of coconut on top of the hot cake) and Watergate Cake (these are the cakes that make cake mixes fun, in my opinion). I thought this book--with its myriad of recipes--would be all-inclusive. I also wish there were more indulgent-type cakes such as the Banana w/ Caramel Frosting. Too many are bundt/coffee-type cakes which aren't as appealing in a cake mix form to me.
