How to make a box cake mix taste more like a bakery cake:
Add 2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat pans with cooking spray or baking release. I use Wilton’s Baking Release and it works like a charm every time.
While the cake could be enhanced from a mix, I wanted the filling and frosting to be made from scratch. Cream Cheese and butter cream? Yes, please! It take a little extra time, but it’s so worth it!
6 cups powdered sugar
After all the sugar has been added, continue beating on medium until fluffy.
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Beat on medium until it reaches the desired consistency for frosting. It should take two to three minutes. If it is not thick enough, add more sugar. If it’s too thick, add more milk.
Place bottom layer on cake plate and top with cream cheese filling. Leave a border around the edge to avoid having it spill over the sides. Set aside remaining cream cheese filling.
