When preparing a cake from a boxed mix, I make the most of the plastic bag the cake mix comes in. I use it to protect my hand when I grease the cake pan, then I just toss it away. —Erma I., Echo, Minnesota
If you like cookies-and-cream ice cream, you'll love this cake. Chocolate sandwich cookies are mixed into the batter and pressed into the sweet and creamy frosting for a fun look. —Pat Habiger, Spearville, Kansas
I've been making Red Velvet Cake for many years, trying slight changes in the recipe until coming up with one I consider "tried and proven." Conveniently, it starts with a cake mix and turns out beautifully every time.
