I haven't bought a box of cake mix in years,
So didn't know that the packaging has changed
So much and gotten smaller.

shrinking cake mix

Packages of cake mix have shrunk in size so older recipes calling for an
18.25 ounce box may not work as well with the new packaging. This easy fix
will take care of the difference. 

If your box of mix is 16.5 ounces, add 6 tablespoons flour.

If your box of mix is 15.25 ounces, add 11 tablespoons (1/2 cup flour plus 3
tablespoons) plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder.
