This makes a denser cake than a normal boxed cake mix. It's a "semi-homemade" cake, and you can mix any sorts of flavors to create endless varieties! I got this basic recipe from my cousin who has been hired to make wedding cakes and countless birthday cakes. Have fun experimenting!
*Coffee is a very good flavor enhancer to chocolate. You can put in 1 C of coffee, or use 1 C of water & a T of instant coffee granuales in the mix.
*Be creative with your liquids. Juice, soda, coffee, melted juice concentrate, melted ice cream, flavored coffee creamers, margarita mix, etc)
*chocolate cakes may need more liquid, as they are a bit thicker
