using a cake mix in a recipe

Hi maybe someone can help,
Was just wondering, I've seen recipes that include adding a boxed cake mix but the recipe that I am making also has eggs listed along with other ingredients. Do u normally make the recipe using the ingredients that's listed on the cake box in addition to the ingredients that the recipe calls for?
Thank you.

Types of apples for pies

Hi all,

What varieties of apples do you prefer using when making apple pies? Do you like to use one variety or a combination?

What to call it?

I have a hybrid cake in the oven. I didn't have enough carrots for carrot cake and not enough bananas for hummingbird cake. So I morphed them into a pineapple-banana-carrot-pecan-coconut cake. A humming carrot cake? Or a carrot bird cake? Or just a hum-dinger cake? Any suggestions?

Need to be more specific

When asking what to use, It is to inject the filling in the batter.

King Cake in a Convection Oven

It is carnival season again and I am wanting to bake my King Cake like I do every year. My problem is that last year I purchased a convection oven and cheese filled King Cakes can be a bit tricky to get cooked all the way through without the outside getting too brown. Believe me I have ruined a many a King Cake thinking it was perfectly cooked only to cut into them and the center is still raw. I spent one entire season finding the perfect recipe and calculating the perfect temperature and time that was required in my old oven. I would really appreciate not having to go through that process again. Are there any tips or tricks that y'all know of that could help me bake a perfectly cooked King Cake in my convection oven the first try?
