Thank you!!!! I've been saying this for years and people still gawk at me. IT"S CAKE!!! It's not supposed to be healthy - you are not to eat it everyday (maybe 4-6 times a year)- you are not to eat more than one industry determined slice (1*2*4 or 2*2*2). And if you are allergic to anything inside the cake - eat something else- don't call around looking for a horrible disgusting allergy-free (or diabetic friendly) cake. Accept that you can't have it at all and eat something else! It's cake - it's actually supposed to be bad for you to be good. IMNTBHO
Don't bother telling me how wrong I am - I won't listen. Haven't in years, won't start now. ;-p
Bake whichever (scratch vs mix) YOU make better - that's the way you should go.

I too am debating scratch cakes versus boxed cake recipes. I didn't want to use the box cake mixes because of the HFCS and the hydrogenated oils, etc. BUT, I've come to the conclusion that it's CAKE. It's not like people should really expect cake to be good for you. Sure, you don't want it to be dangerous, but I personally have relaxed a little on the subject and am going to try Jeri C's cake recipes that start with boxed mixes. Just my 2 cents, for what it's worth.
