It’s pure magic—you’ll never believe these cakes come out of a box!
Transform ordinary cake mix into extraordinary cakes through just the right additions: Use buttermilk and sour cream for greater moisture and richness. Boost flavor with cocoa powder, peppermint extract, lemon zest—even lemon yogurt. Instead of water, try orange juice, canned pumpkin, a leftover cup of coffee (it makes for a devilishly delicious brownie). Byrn takes bakers boldly forward with 160 fast, foolproof recipes, plus dozens of fresh ideas on frosting (including how to make only what you need), garnishing, and baking lighter cakes for lighter appetites.
