Step Outside of the Box

One box of cake mix doesn't have to be a boring dessert!

So many times the back of the cake box suggests baking in two 8" or 9" round cake pans. BORING!

The One Box of Cake Mix Set

Step outside of the box and create a mini tier cake using one box of cake mix. It is only 3-tiers, but the possibilities are endless.  

Fill each pan 1/2 full. Reduce the heat 25 degrees. 

  • 3 x 2" round  bake about 10 minutes
  • 5 x 2" round  bake about 12 minutes
  • 7 x 2" round bake about 20 minutes

Times are approximate and depend upon recipe, oven, altitude and temperature. Remember to check for doneness about 5 minutes prior to finishing time. Cake should be pulling away from the sides, and the center will spring back when touched.
