Hi Sophisticated, I am mostly a scratch baker, with one exception – the WASC which is a doctored cake mix…although I do have a scratch recipe for that too! I really enjoy scratch baking, I think it adds a personal touch and signature flavour to my cakes that makes it all my own. Many of the bakers here in Cayman – including some custom bakeries use box mixes and many customers are fine with the familiar flavor of a box mix. But for me, now that I am used to the taste and textures of a scratch cake, I really dislike the chemical taste of a box mix. Hope that helps! What are your thoughts on this topic?
