Pinned it: Better Box Mix Yellow Cake + Milk Chocolate Frosting
A few weeks ago Publix had boxed cake mixes on sale for $1 so I decided to try a combo of pins I've seen a bunch of times on Pinterest: The Better Boxed Cake & Make a Boxed Cake Taste Like Bakery.
I figured while I was trying new things, I might as well try a new frosting. I spent a little time pinning frosting recipes, especially chocolate ones! I decided to try the Milk Chocolate Frosting recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction.
You use the box mix, milk instead of water, butter instead of oil and extra eggs. I also added vanilla extract.
The cake definitely had a more homemade texture, but still the same fakey boxed cake taste.
The frosting was light and fluffy, but I wish I had made a fudge frosting for this cake.
I am planning to try this again with Devil's Food cake mix to see if it's any better. Actual homemade is still absolutely a million times better.
