Cake mix is SO cheap but it often tastes cheap. A few swaps and additions…and you might not be able to tell it apart from a from-scratch cake (ok…well almost)
I made this cake today with all the tips below and it was AMAZING. I used strawberries from my garden (plus a few bigger store bought ones for the top).
I even used canned frosting- I added a tiny bit of softened butter and whipped it in the mixer for about 3 minutes.
