There are three possibilities which may prevent your cake from rising. Your mix may be too liquidy; remember to measure your ingredients accurately. Or, your pan may be too large. Always follow the recommended pan size for best results. Finally, your oven may be too cool; use an oven thermometer to measure the correct temperature when heating or preheating your oven.

I'm having the "fallen cupcake" syndrom. With all of us having this issue with our cakes, etc.-why hasn't DH responded with a "fix"?

I've been baking for 50 years and have never had a cake flop. The past couple of months, I have been so disappointed with my cakes. Always use DH - thought it was something I was doing but after reading other discussion items, realize it's not me. Help DH, we love your cakes, but not if they're going to go flat after taking them out of the oven.

I thought that it was me. I read some of the reviews and agree we need to do something about it to DH. We support this company and they have left us down. Maybe we should all send them a email.

I'm so glad I clicked on this website. The only mix I have ever bought has been DH .... all of the rest were just too dry and tasteless. Now, I, too have experience with the cake falling flat. Makes me so mad because it was to be for a special time tonight. It's about an inch thick. I noticed when I put it in the cake pan that it seemed very liquidy but thought maybe it was just my imagination. Wrong! I'll not buy DH again ... this discussion really opened my eyes to the deceit of manufacturers. I would rather pay more and keep what I had. Don't know what to do next ... I do have a Best Choice, maybe I'll throw that one together. Couldn't be worse. Thanks for the comments!

Cakes falling flat..... using new D.H. 16.5oz cake mixes. How can I do to prevent this?

I am VERY disappointed in the smaller mixes. There is a distinct difference in the outcomes I've been used to for years. How can the directions and ingredient amount for the Devil's Food pound cake on the side of the box be the same when there's less mix in the boxes? Unfortunately, all the major brand cake mixes have gone to this smaller package though the price stays the same. Personally, I'd rather pay more for the unaltered, reliable 18.5 oz. mix than have my cake turn out unacceptable. I will not purchase another DH product unless these ghastly changes are undone.

I have baked over hundred wedding cakes using the Duncan Hines butter cake mix. I always thought that this cake was better than a cake from scratch. I hate the new butter cake mix as it doesn't bake the same or taste the same. I will not use it again. Please go back to the original butter cake mix. I am now looking on line for a good butter cake mix from scratch.

Okay...I have an issue with the cake mixes being reduced in size. Many people who use these have for many years and have a system and now we have to change that system. Why would you do that Duncan Hines?! Go back to the way they used to be. Quit skimping on the ingredients! I understand a price increase...I can justify that. But to have to change everything about the way I back because you changed the amount of mix in the box is really irritating! Do change an already good thing!

Help! Making a tiered cake. How many cake mixes for each of the following pan sizes. 14x3. 10 x3 and 6x3?

When using two boxes of DH white cake mix, can they be mixed together or should each box be mixed separately? And if mixed together are the ingredients for each box the same?

Does anyone know how many French vanilla cake mixes I need for a 14" X14"X2" cake pan?

My cakes do not rise and are flat. I never used to have this problem could it be because Duncan Hines reduced the amount of mix in the box?

Why are there no high altitude directions on the new cake mixes? It says to check this website, but the only high altitude directions are the ones for the old mixes.
