  • Both. For quickness I use box but if I'm wanting something different or in mass amounts I do scratch. A good 1-2-3-4 cake is very adaptable.

  • scratch! I love to bake and its sooo much more fun to do when you do it from scratch!

  • Both. But my favorite is pineapple. And rather than adding water to the box cake mix, I use the pineapple juice from the can of pineapples. And I use applesauce instead of oil. Then I always put the pineapples on the bottom of the cake pan, with brown sugar and butter, then pour the batter on top. MMMMMMMM

  • it depends.if the kids want to do it all by themselves usually it's from the box. if it's me then i'll do it from scratch.

  • I do both. I went to cooking and baking school and let me tell you both have their own place.

  • It depends. I've used the box kinds, but usually when I make desserts, I make them from scratch.I 'm just learning how to really bake, and I like experimenting with different desserts from scratch. The boxed ones really don't compare.
