My personal recipe for hacking a Vanilla Cake Mix.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Here are the big secrets about making the cake using my method:
I used a food scale to divide my batter at about 330 grams per pan, but you can put about a cup In each pan and then even it out from there.
Please note that this tiny cake uses a LOT of frosting. To be honest, I think it actually needs more. I had a little trouble smoothing the frosting how I wanted on the cold cake, and I think it’s because my decorative layer was too thin. My crumb coat was also quite thin. So the next go round, I will go up on the amount of frosting I make. This still made a very nice cake! But let’s see how it is to decorate with a thicker layer of frosting the next go around. Also, I have a full post and video on making American Buttercream, so I will include that as link for you by clicking here.
