Pillsbury didn't mess around...

I don't know what year this was, but Pillsbury was definitely making an argument for being the exalted cake mix GOAT. Yes mom. I will be enjoying that mixing bowl and mixer beaters too, you may not want to look cuz I'll be going all in on the batter. Bowl and blades. I knew it would be hours before I'd get to indulge in a slice.

I've never bought a box of cake mix. I do however buy Pillsbury brand cake flour. I use it to make my own pastry flour. Two parts of cake flour to one part of all purpose flour (by weight) yields flour that has the same percentage of protein that professional pastry flour has. Try this when you make your own pancakes at home instead of using all purpose flour.

I haven't seen one of those since I moved out of the family house. Didn't they used to say 'Chocolate Cake' instead of 'Chocolate flavored?

Unless it contains a certain percentage of cocoa powder, and a certain percentage of cocoa butter, you can't legally call it chocolate. You need to call it chocolate flavor.

One of the candy bar companies cut out the cocoa butter and replaced it with cheap palm oil, and they REALLY got in trouble. Might have been Reeses and their Peanut Butter cups. They added corn syrup and took out cane sugar in the peanut butter too. That's why they melt on your fingers so easily. A Mars or Snickers bar does not behave that way.

Some of those styles/flavors are very regional. My partner and I watch a lot of stuff from the Food Network, sometimes just in the background. Halloween and "Holiday" Baking contests are going to start Tomorrow FYI.

Anyway, one of the baking contests had everyone doing a different region theme every week. One week I think was a Lord Baltimore cake.

Boy v63 didn't care. He was just happy that there was cake. Any kind of cake.

I haven't either, but my grandmother made a cake she called Lady Baltimore, the filling had dried fruit and nuts soaked in brandy.

Layers were white cake, maybe 7 minute frosting? I gotta look for her recipe.

We had a lot of winter birthdays and she'd make this, or fresh coconut. Or yellow cake with cooked fudge icing.

Some of the cake mixes now make excellent cakes, can't lie.

Ooooo, I’ll take any or all of the above. They sound delicious.

Had a buddy whose brand new PhD wasn't selling in the job market so he became the stay at home dad and did some cake baking on the side. He would make his cakes from scratch of course. One job came up so fast that he had to use a box of Jiffy mix and he got way more compliments on that cake than any of his scratch cakes. He decided that people like what they know.

(He later got a job teaching at a community college so his degree was not a complete waste of effort.)
