    Colleen…the towel catches the condensation that starts to build up on the inside of the lid.
    And Brandy…feel free to use whatever cake mix you have on hand or tweak it to your families taste. I bet a spice cake mix would be really yummy, girl :)

  4. Colleen

    What is the purpose of laying the towel over the top?

  5. Brandy N.

    Can you use a spice cake mix insted of the flour & spices. I am looking for something to do with this cake mix.

    could you use a crockpot cooking bag instead of the foil as long as you still lay the cloth over the top?????
