Cake mixes

Happy Mom

Aug 11, 2005
Has anyone tried the chocolate or lemon cake mixes? Do they taste good?

Did I read the description correctly that a box only makes one single, 9 inch layer?

That seems very expensive.

Yes, I've had them and they ARE very good. I like the lemon one best. I've really only made them to have samples at various booths I've done over the holidays to attract people to my table. I made them in the mini muffin pans, then quartered each one to have little bite-size samples. I've never had anyone buy them. I won't be surprised if those get discontinued. Although you'd pay probably $5 or $6 to have a slice of one of these in a nicer restaurant, I just don't see people buying them. I guess we'll see what they do with these products!

I earned my cake mixes but haven't made them yet...I was kind of waiting for a special occasion. Maybe when my babies are born I will make a double layer cake or two separate cakes....one for each twin! LOL

I as well earned them and have tried both. I would not pay $9 for them, thus I have not sold any of them. I have bought food items from Tastefully Simple for less that are MUCH better. I would pay $9 for a cake if it was out of this world. And unfortionately, I would describe PC as out of any world! :(

I've made both, and am disappointed

I've made both cakes two times each, and was disappointed every time. The flavor was fine, but both were very dry, even when baked 5 minutes under the minimum (my oven's accurate, so I can't even blame that). I have actually sold a few, but it certainly wasn't due to my sales pitch, as I don't talk about them. Personally, I hope to see them dropped.

I earned them too. Our director served the choc at a cluster meeting. I compare the choc one to a very good brownie. Would I spend the money? Nope! I am using them as booking insentives and catalogue show thank you's. So far I can't even give them away. :confused: I hope they are dropped and sure they will be.
