    Default How can cookie mix be used to make a cake?

    I bought 3 pkgs of gingerbread mix a few weeks ago. Today I started
    to make gingerbread, and finally *read* the package. It's Betty
    Crocker Gingerbread *cookie* mix--not *cake*! Any ideas as to how I
    can turn it into gingerbread? Thanks..

    Do you have any other boxes of cake mix around? If so then look at
    those to see what you add to them and then do the same with the
    gingerbread cookie mix. I believe most of them usually say 1/3 cup
    oil, 3 eggs, and
    1 1/2 cups of water. If you're unsure about all this then take the
    gingerbread cookie mixes back to the store and get the right item.
    Did you read the entire package? Sometimes those mixes will have
    different directions on them in case you want to make something other
    than the main product.

    I forgot to mention one. Make sure the package of gingerbread cookie
    mix and the package of cake mix you're using as a guide are
    approximately the same weight. Otherwise, you'll have to adjust the
    amounts of the added ingredients.

    Thanks so much for the solution! The weight's are within one ounce
    of each other, but after all my consternation (and your help), I've
    decided to use the mix for my usually- made-from-scratch Christmas
    gingercream cookies, and bake some real gingerbread for this upcoming
    occasion )
