  • Any cake mix is fine, but obviously if you get a slightly more expensive one, it'll be better quality. I like betty crocker best :)

  • For a chocolate cake, add coffee to the water/milk they'll tell you to mix in, it will taste much richer. I also like to add some cinnamon (usually about a teaspoon or two).

    For a white cake, adding some vanilla extract will help.

    As for the oil, it will be much better if you replace the oil with melted butter/ margarine.

  • In general, if you want to cut calories, you can replace the eggs and oil in the recipe by some substitutes. I prefer applesauce when i cook, since it is quite healthy.

    For eggs, use 1/4 of a cup of applesauce for each egg.

    For oil, i recommend you only take out half of the oil. So if it says to use 1/2 of a cup use 1/4 applesauce and 1/4 oil.

  • Finally, toppings!

    One of the easiest ways to make a good cake better is to add buttercream frosting. All you need to do is to mix powdered sugar ( yes, it has to be powdered, if you use regular sugar, it wont work AT ALL) and butter together with a fork until it looks like icing (and i recommend tasting it to be sure its well mixed and isn't too sweet)

    Oh yes, and wait until the cake is cool, or else it will be a big mess because the butter will melt
